It’s a wintery Sunday afternoon in Sydney’s botanical gardens. Sunshine is gently caressing the fallen leaves on the ground. A little boy is playing on his red tricycle, his aqua knitted beanie and cute overalls protecting him from the crisp wintery breeze. His name is Mateo and he is 3. From a short distance of a rusty old park bench, his dads, Mike and Eric, are watching over him lovingly.

They shared many exciting adventures, from travelling the world to buying their first house to finally having their greatest gift through a surrogate, Mateo. Mike was born in Melbourne and moved to Sydney’s Darlinghurst with his mum when he was 2 after his parents divorced.
