“have you any idea how hurtful that is?”
It continues: “Just for the record in future don’t bother he’s not an after thought he’s my every f***ing thought.”

Good on you, dad! There will never be a better advocate for a child than their parent.

‘They are mortified that Shane feels this way.’
She said: ‘There’s some building bridges to be done now that Shane has spoken about how he truly feels and I think only positivity can come from his outburst.
‘The simple advice I give is: Just ask.’
