Oh, the joys and pressures of parents, eh?
Running like a headless chicken, trying to feed, dress, educate and play with your dearest and dearest children, all while juggling a job that brings bread home! When your life is constantly a crazy house, with no end in sight, it can be difficult to find a balance. Especially if there are not less than five children in your litter!
For Lauren, 10, her father is everything to her, it just seems like there are never enough hours a day to spend time with him. He works hard to support such a big family and, as we all know, sometimes things can get a little crazy. Lauren wants her father to come out more, and so does he. Quaker has decided to intervene and configure something that the family will never forget.
Lauren is obsessed with dancing and has been attending classes since she was very young. With a new recital to come, he had to work hard to prepare, but it was nothing compared to what his father had to do! Michael has met the impact of his life, but he will undoubtedly bring his father and daughter closer than they already are.
The two are interviewed in the video below on what they would like to change about their relationship and in a moving way: both said they wanted to spend more time together. Well, that’s just what Quaker organized, and what will happen next will melt your heart out!
On the day of the dance performance on them, Lauren’s mother was desperately trying to call Michael on the phone, but constantly reorienting her to the answering machine. Several texts later, there was still no news that he would appear for his daughter’s special day. Only again when work gets in the family.
There was still an empty seat in the audience when the lights went out and Lauren went alone to the stage. And although Michael had managed to send a short text message to say that he was coming, it seemed he would not make it, while Lauren began her routine in front of her mother, her teachers and the rest of the school. But not dad.
But don’t let us ruin everything for you. Watch this wonderful video below to see what happened next and share it with family and friends, because life is short and it’s always a good time to tell someone who loves you.
