Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Teacher said Mother’s Day was a special day to show your mum how much you loved her. Unlike the other kids, Meriel didn’t have a mum; she had two daddies instead.
While her classmates made cards for their mums, Meriel made one for her Daddy and her Tad, decorated with flowers, glitter, and a picture she’d drawn of the three of them. Across the top, she wrote in big, wobbly letters, ‘Happy Mother’s Day, Daddy and Tad.’
Meriel didn’t know why her teacher was sad for her. Although she didn’t have a mum, she wouldn’t swap her daddies for anything.
