    when we were young and my step-dad became that Father figure for us. I don't have any Dad issues at all but I really admire a man who is a Good Father. Someone who takes time out for their children even with everything going on for them.

    so it makes me smile when I see a guy who is really sweet and caring with his kids :)

    Sadly, I have been unable to provide my

    children with a good father. I left their father when the children were young, due to physical abuse in the marriage. Tried for years for him to maintain contact with them, it was like flogging a dead horse! He has had nothing to do with them for 10 years now. Probably my...

    I love seeing a man respect his family.

    In my own experience, I witnessed several men not care not only for the woman who made him a father, but also completely forgot about the innocent child created that didn't ask to be born. When I stand back and see a man actually give so much love to his child, I actually find...

    He may not be her blood,

    but my fiancé is a true man and father. He is a natural. I love watching them together. They are my babies. I am so happy to have a man in my life, that is a real father. Blood doesn't make family. And my fiancé proves that everyday. I love him.

    I have a daughter who will be 7 very soon.

    I was the first to hold her and from that moment I was hooked I have never loved anything or one as much as I do my daughter. I cannot fathom how someone could look into the eyes of their baby and not want to love and protect that child for the rest of their lives.
