Waiting for Dad (iii)

Waiting for Dad 3-2

This is my grandson Thomas, after school, sitting on our front wall, waiting for his dad. I have looked after him one day a week since he was a baby. He is nearly twelve now and changing a lot, the way he thinks about the world and his place in it. Amongst all the challenges of an uncertain world, at the end of the day, he waits for his father.
