Awwww.....thank you.

There was once a time in my life that I thought being a father was never something I wanted to be. Part of that was having a wife who could not have a baby, which is probably one of the hardest issues a couple can face; wanting a child and being unable to conceive.

Fortunately now at age 44, I have the privilege of being a father on many levels.

Biological Father to (2) daughters
Foster father to (1) daughter
Step Father to (2) daughters
Father to a miscarriage (gender unknown)

I am not an adoptive father granted, though I did grow up in an foster/adopted family and have (6) adopted brothers and sisters. I mention this because I know being biological has little to do with being a true father; love does. I celebrate too father's everywhere, no matter what it looks like.
