On June 9th 2009, Paul became the proud father of Joshua James. Within six months, Joshua's mother left, taking Joshua with her to start a new life.  

Every Saturday morning, Paul catches the 08:23 train from Exeter to Bridgwater (UK) to collect Joshua for the night. Weekend Dad is a story about the unconditional love between Paul and his son, Joshua.
