Single and Broke Dad Gets A Touching Present From J. K. Rowling

A tribute to all the amazing fathers out there!

Reading the Harry Potter series has become a way for father Matt Burke and his daughter to spend some quality time. But what he didn’t expect is that the renowned author of the popular books series, J.K. Rowling, herself, would take notice.

Matt Burke, a single dad and photographer from Tallahassee, Florida is facing some challenges when it comes to providing his daughter’s needs. He went broke but still kept trying hard just to be there for Bailey.

Matt said that there were a lot of times that he had to miss dinner so his daughter can eat.

He can’t afford to buy her daughter expensive toys or even go on holidays together. But he found a good way to hang out with her without the need to spend money.

Matt and Bailey read the Harry Potter books together, and since his daughter loves it, he decided to read it too.

It turned out that he started to like the novel.
