It’s always touching to see fathers go the extra mile in fulfilling their responsibilities for their children. Remember Ryan Arebuabo? He’s that Filipino single dad whose heartwarming story went viral on social media after he was spotted with his daughters at a local Jollibee store. The poor father was watching his girls as they ate their meals as he didn’t order food for himself due to financial limitations.
Now another man from the Philippines has recently caught everyone’s attention after a couple of images of him and his son were shared over the internet by the Front Row Facebook page.
Tatay Alejandro, as he is known, takes his 7-year-old son Junior to school every day. The boy is currently in Grade 2 and attends the Pasig Elementary School.
The catch here, of course, is that Tatay Alejandro is actually wheelchair-bound.
In a post by Definitely Filipino, we learn that Alejandro takes his boy to school “whether it rains or whether it is a hot day.” This, of course, is not an easy thing since the father has to “manually roll his wheelchair using his hands” plus the boy’s already big so carrying him must be hard as they travel through busy roads.
According to the father, he does this daily for two things: to ensure his son’s safety and to save on fare expenses.
Alejandro was stricken with polio when he was merely 5 years of age and he considers himself lucky to have married later on in life. Despite his physical disability, he is clearly doing his best to live up to his role as a father.
We definitely have nothing but pure respect for this man. It’s amazing how much he loves his son. We do not doubt Junior will grow up to be a good boy and help his family someday.

Five High School Friends Have Been Recreating The Same Photo For 35 Years
Friendship goals right there!
Striking a friendship with someone who you know is on the same wavelength as you is easy. What’s challenging is keeping a friend for a lifetime. But if a friendship lasts through the decades, you have found a rare treasure.
One fine day in 1982, five high school friends went on a vacation to Copco Lake and took one holiday photo -- a simple one, just like what any vacationer would do. But that single photo isn’t just any group photo. It’s special for the guys who met in Santa Barbara, California as it was the start of a tradition that would last for more than three decades.
John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer-Cleary, Dallas Burney, John Molony and John Dickson have been taking the same vacation, recreating the exact same photo in the same spot and right order every five years for 35 years.
