On Sunday, Irish parents were treated to a rare moment of candour from their child’s biological father.
He shared his experience of raising his daughter with a mother who has never worked outside of her home for any length of time and, despite being a woman of many talents, never had a career beyond the home.
He was not one of the children’s biological parents.
In a rare interview, the father of one of Ireland’s first children, Daniela Falfa, described the emotional and mental toll that has taken on his family since his daughter’s birth.
“My daughter is my most treasured possession,” he said.
“She’s my whole world and I’m really not going to let that pass her by.
She’s a big girl.
I don’t want her to be anything else.
I want her so much.
She can be anything.
She has all the ability to be a princess.””
She is very smart, she is very bright, she can be a poet, she could be an accountant, she’s got a degree in history.
But all the other aspects, I don�t know if she’s ever had a chance to have an education, to have a job, to get her own house, have a roof over her head.
I�m very grateful for the opportunities she has.””
But she has never had the opportunity to grow up with a real father, to be the best parent she could ever have.””
When I went to work for the first time I was a complete stranger.
I was at work and it was a stranger, I was really confused.
I came in and I had never seen anyone before.””
I had never met a woman who wasn�t married, I�ve never met anybody who hadn�t worked in an office before.
I think my daughter is the luckiest child I have ever known.
She�s the luckier child I’ve ever known.”
