Your Stories

The first day of MyTime was the hardest yet most influential day of my life to date. It showed me that it was ok to be feeling as I did; I needn’t be embarrassed. Other fathers were going through the exact same thing and had been doing so for a lot longer than I. They were still able to function as adults and parents. Very, very good parents. More importantly I was exposed to a level of family cohesion that a few months prior I had convinced myself was not possible. A change that to date has increased beyond recognition.
