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.
