The things you say...
Thank you for all the fantastic messages you send in. It seems that dadcando has something for everyone. Here are a small selection of the lovely messages that you have sent us over the last year.

I would just like to say how informative and wonderfully helpful your site has been to me. It is an emotional roller coaster at times as a single "part time" dad and your site really helps me with your advice and quotes. Thank you so much for making the effort, it is truly appreciated,
London, UK

I just found your site and have been looking it over and reading the About Section. I have never seen a site with such solid, affirmative goals and ideals - nor have I ever seen one that is succeeding so well in accomplishing its goals. Kudos to you, from this happily married creative American mother of four,
Hayden, USA

Thanks for the site! I am a single father of a nine year old boy. It amazes me how there is such a lack of resources available for men like us. Good luck and again thank you,

I recently have had the pleasure of looking through your website. Although not a single dad, my parents divorced when I was 7 and I could associate with all of the topics you have covered very well. I'm a married woman now, yet a few times when reading through your material I had to blink back tears. All single dads need to know this stuff. I'm sure it would have saved our family a lot of heart ache. Can I just encourage you for the amazing work you have done thus far and say that I honestly believe the countless hours you have spent on this (no doubt) are certainly not in vain,

I tried your instructions for the Magical Lumos Wand and I must say it was absolutely cool and great! I am extremely happy with the wand I made. It looks sooo real! I used a glue gun to mould the entire wand but I used a normal switch instead of making one. I love it!

Hi, I just happened by your site and wanted to say how fantastic it is and what an inspirational and supportive place it is. I'm fortunate to be a happily married mother of two grown up sons - so this site is full of stuff I did with my kids (and it would have been a great resource for me too when they were young!). Many Dad's (whether single or not) don't often get chance to do stuff other than sport with their kids - so this site will give them some inspiration and confidence to branch out. Keep up the great work!

Hi there, Iíve got to say Iím not a dad, but my parents split up when I was a lot younger. I just thought I would send a message. I think this site is great and I extend my thanks to people who are dedicated to a worthy cause such as this. Iím sure it makes a big difference to fathers out there who need to make the most of the precious time they get to spend with their children. Keep up the good work, and may this site continue to help the countless number of fathers out there who love their children more than anything else in the world.
