Today we celebrate dads all around the World and say thanks for everything that they do. We take a moment to think of our Butterflies ‘first’ fathers who had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave their babies behind. We take a moment to thank all of our male volunteers who spend time with the children, reading stories, playing ball and fixing things around our home. But this post today is really dedicated to our amazing forever dads who have brought their Butterflies home and we wanted to share some of the things that make them special…

From reading stories… (Lily & her dad)
