    So I was reading through questions

    and experiences. I read one story that broke my heart tonight. A father was writing about the loss of his baby boy Dom. There was so much pain!!!! He is so angry at God. :( I wish there was something I could do. If you wouldn't mind just saying a little prayer for domsdad...

    I try to be as a good a father

    as possible, but sometimes I fail. We all fail in one way or another, I suppose. Only if kids came with instruction manuals - but tiebreaks be robots!

    He doesn't have children of his own,

    and he is already a good father, by the way he is. One of the reasons why I love him much.

    Because I didn't grow up with a dad,

    so when I have kids I will love them with all of my heart and not abandon them

    This is a good father.

    ... watching a child's face light up when Daddy comes into view. Eyes twinkling in admiration and awe, full smiles and cooing noises, Oooos and aahhhs, delightful giggles and squeals... all from hearing those three precious words from Dad.... Pull My Finger.

    So, my man and I were playing with his little

    niece. She was laughing/screaming at him at the top of her little three year old lungs and he pretended to be knocked back and scared by it. He even threw himself on the ground and rolled backwards. This went on for almost an hour and later that night he was cuddling me in bed...

    I don't think they get enough credit

    but a woman once said to me, " A father doesn't need credit for something he suppose to be doing anyway" :/ idk - I think dads are cool, though I don't have one. I applaud a man who takes care and looks after his child or children :)

    Who are we kidding. OF COURSE,

    we admire a MAN who is a GOOD FATHER. A male who isn't a good father is a ***** donor and has no right to be called a man. Real men raise their children.

    ..... more so when he's had a useless

    I admire all of you dads!

    It's a hard job but someone has to do it and it seems most of you do it quite well! It's not always perfect but the good times are a bliss. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I'd love to connect with other dads or moms! :)

    More men need to 'man up'

    and take responsibility for their children. It's hard enough to make it in this crazy world, let alone trying to do it without the love, support and guidance of a good father. Do the right thing!

    You're a dysfunctional partner,

    but I know you'll be an absolutely amazing father. I love how you glow with anticipation. That one moment when everything in your life is in perfect balance for once. Despite any and everything, if it is true, I know you will always excel as a father... I'll never take that away...

    I see a man out somewhere with his kids,

    no mom in sight. I think it can be very sexy. There are so many good men out there taking care of their kids. I know women do it all the time but for a while the stigma was that men didn't take care of the kids. I love that this notion is changing. You go sexy dads!

    Yes, there are many great dads out there I've

    recently met with. There are meet-up groups for single parents and it's certainly helped with talking things out and figuring things out. It's almost like like a professional conference - except the job is 21/7!

    I do because my father decidedly ISN'T,

    nor ever will be. In fact, if I ever adopt kids, they will never, ever be allowed to be alone with him. If my mom wants to see her grandkids, she can leave my father at home, drive to my house and see my kids. I don't trust my father more than I can throw him.
