Father’s Day will be upon us this weekend, and while we’re usually all about the moms around here, I do want to take time to acknowledge the dads in our lives. Many of us have dads, or our spouses/partners do; some of us recognize our children’s biological and/or legal fathers for other reasons (previous relationships, known donors, etc.) Many of us have friends whom we admire for their fatherly skills.
My own dad has been a constant presence in our son’s life right from the beginning, always ready with a story or to step in and help us when we have male-related plumbing concerns.
Leave a comment and share a tale of a dad in your life. (And then go read this sweet reflection on dads by gay dad Ryan LaLonde.)
