    The Most Important Thing In The World Is Being A Good Father

    Not to start off on a downer but, my father was rarely around. I realized later that he had a chip on his shoulder from an early age. I don't think he loved himself and therefore he couldn't love my mother or me. He was abusive to my mother and she didn't take it. She separated...

    Fathering Is Great... What About Grandfathering?

    We wanted children so badly.  It was hard.  My wife had 6 miscarriages.  She was a DES baby and had fertility problems.  We persisted and after six long years we adopted.  We were SO happy to have a miracle baby... our first daughter was truly...

    My Daughter

    My sweet daughter is my life. Ever since I first laid eyes on her I knew I'd gladly give my life up for hers. We are very close and she tells me everything happening in her life. I can't imagine my life without her.

    Big Daddy

    I dont think that one could imagine knowing what being a father is like until the time your first child is born. You see dads with their kids all the time, in fact you see your own father, and know how much he loves you, but it does not really sink in until it...

    So Blessed

    I did not want to become a father. I thought, with my own upbringing, I could never be a good father. And on top of that, not fair to put a child in this crazy world without having a good father to rely on. I was so convinced it almost cost me my relationship. I did not want to...

    My World Revolves Around My Kids!

    I am blessed to have 5 truly perfect little girls. I have a 13 year old step-daughter whom I plan on adopting soon. She is a firecracker and has the spirit of her mother (which is a great thing). Me and her are fairly close even though I've only been a part of her life for a...

    I Want Him To Tell His Father Everything.

    Though I am a mother, I love acting like a father to my son. I know when sons need moral support even while they're at young like talking to them and giving them a man to man talk. Though I can't be manly by way of speaking, But I know how to be tough and act like a man, by way...

    Two Times Over

    I'll never forget the day that my girlfriend, who now is my wife, told me that she was pregnant with our first child. At first, all the things that a first time father would feel, came rushing through my head. Once I had a chance to let things sink in, I was overjoyed. Even...

    So Much

    An old friend (then childless) asked me if having a baby was fun.  I said "no, but it's incredibly meaningful."  My daughter is three now and I love just being her dad.   I love being there for her.

    My Little Buddies :)

    Sometimes they drive me mad, to tears even but then its always the people you love who do. Its like penance for all the cuddles, kisses and wonderful giggles that fill my ears on an almost daily basis. And I'd gladly pay it again a million times over.

    The innocence of youth,

    no matter what is happening in the world my son always has a smile on his face and joy in his heart. He's only four years old yet sometimes I believe he has the wisdom of a man twenty times his years. I have been so troubled that he will never remember the truth of his parents...
