[Australia] New South Wales - "Gay Dads NSW Father's Day catch up" by Ashley Scott

Ashley Scott from Gay Dads NSW sent us a short update on the recent Gay Dads Father's Day picnic in New South Wales.  Thanks Ashley!

Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us in Sydney for Father's Day. It was threatening rain all morning. We decided to risk getting wet and thankfully the rain held off.

The weather meant we had less Dads and children than we hoped for. We still had a great turn out of about 20 Dads and the same number of children.

Our community is very diverse and so was our group of Dads which is great. There were a few Dads with pregnant surrogates, some Dads with children born through surrogacy in India, Thailand and the US. As well as some Dads with their adopted children, and a Dad with his daughter who he co-parents.

The Gay Dad’s catch ups are a great way for Dads to share their stories and experiences with other Dads - a good opportunity to see old friends and make new ones.

It is also a fantastic chance for our children to make friends with other children who’s families look like theirs.

Hopefully the weather will be better for our Christmas get together in December. Keep and eye out for details.
