Amidst the joy of Mother’s Day festivities, there’s a pang of exclusion for those without a mother to celebrate. To prevent his daughter from feeling this absence, a devoted single father named Joe Lookphonbodee had a creative solution.
He would become the mother figure she needed for the day. Adorning himself in a dress and wig, he attended his adopted daughter’s school event for Mother’s Day, bringing her immense happiness.
In their home country of Thailand, Mother’s Day is observed on August 12. Schools commemorate this occasion with events where children pay homage to their mothers, typically presenting them with jasmine flowers.
“Teacher Joe,” as he’s affectionately known, who teaches physical education at the same institution his daughter, Nong Cream, is enrolled in, embraced the maternal role with open arms.
A video shared by Lookphonbodee captures the heartwarming Mother’s Day celebration. Donning a checkered dress complemented by a wig featuring neat bangs, he receives a loving embrace from Nong Cream. Her face lights up with joy as she nestles into the arms of her father.
