Noah's relationship with his Son

It was really hard for Noah to meet his son during apartheid because it was like a crime for white people to have any relationship with black people. 

After they moved to Yeoville Noah got more time to spend with his son as it was a newly segregated area where people from various races could meet.

Noah used to cook a German dish called Rosti for his son every time they meet. As Noah had to keep moving places due to his job he almost lost touch with his son when he moved to Cape Town.

Noah and Trevor were separated for more than 7 years, which made Trevor doubt his father's love for him. But still, he looked for his father when his mother encouraged him to find the whereabouts of his father. 

Fortunately, they reunited and Noah showed all the love and affection that he had for his son. Noah had always kept track of his sons achievements and success, he even had collected all the cutouts from newspapers and advertisements of his son and saved them in a scrapbook. 

After seeing all those efforts that Noah had made to stay close to Trevor even when they weren't together, Trevor was assured that his father has always loved him.
