Mirjam Thiel, a student Midwife at VIVES university in Kortrijk Belgium asked permission to use the photo Frans de Waal posted of Akili and Jenga. Mirjam is doing a presentation on fatherhood for the midwives conference at the university and wanted to use the photo to help new fathers to relate to their newborn. Marian's photo shows that father's bond with their children because they have a biological need to do so.
