Here’s the thing: Mr. Heere never meant to become the Father Figure to all of his son’s friends, it just sort of… happened.
One minute he’s desperately trying to get out of whatever funk his life had become, the next he’s trying to be the real dad his son deserved - even if it came with a few hard choices, and the next he’s near-about adopted seven more kids.
Do you know how many kids that is? Eight. Mr. Heere had eight teenage children all now living under his one roof, all becoming more and more close to him, and apparently all dating one another. Can they do that? Is that legal?
He figured they’d figure it out as they went.
Because, if he’s speaking honestly, Mr. Heere wouldn’t trade them for the world. Not for anything.
He loved his kids.
