Flat Daddies show up in numerous places and family events. As a way to help those with a common desire to connect with their loved ones, we offer this web space to share how Flat Moms and Dads participate in the lives of those who care to share.
last jan 2007 my son and husband both deployed as part of operation defending freedom they would be gone a total of 15 months we ordered a flat daddy of each and i bought poster frames and hung them in my hallway.my small grandchildren live with me 2 and 4 at the time and those flat daddies help them to be able to see there grand dad and uncle anytime they wanted.they were so helpful thanks for what you do for the families left behindDebbie Evans

we just got our flat daddy in the mail. the kids are beyond excited to see "daddy". they have been giving him hugs and kisses since i put him up. i have him hanging on a door in our livingroom right now since that is where we spend most of our family time! my middle daughter is sitting with him playing right now!! thanks so much!!!Emily Morrissey
my flat daddy has been through one deployment and we are now entering another. We hung it up on our living room wall and when he came back from Iraq it went down. I am not happy it is being put back up (for that only means another deployment) but I am excited that we have it. It is so nice to look at the pic when you miss them more than you can stand. 12-15 months is a long time to be without your spouse and this helps you feel connected. Thanks Flat daddy!!!Brenda Lewis
Thank you so much for sending us our "flat daddy." On the day that we received our "flat daddy," my daughter and I also received news that we were able to get a house in Port Hueneme, CA. Due to the fact that we are going to be moving soon, I wondered if I should post the "flat daddy" on foam board and risk it being destroyed in our move OR should I make a life-size poster for my daughter in a poster frame. Needless to say, I wasn't going to risk anything happening to my daughter's "flat daddy" so I put it in a poster frame. That afternoon when she woke up from her nap she was so excited to see her life-size poster of her daddy. My husband has been deployed for almost a year of my 2-year-old daughter's life, but she still remains a "daddy's girl." Now, with the help of our "flat daddy" she is able to give him kisses and tell him goodnight. I have sent many pictures to my husband in Iraq of our daughter with her "flat daddy" and he couldn't be happier that she has it. Thanks again for helping to make his time away a little easier on my daughter and me! Your efforts are GREATLY appreciated. The picture is of my daughter giving her daddy a kiss!Courtney Wallace
