Are You A Dad-er?

Do you do the daddy-ing?
Maybe you’re a father. Maybe you’re not.
Either way, the daddy-ing dads, stepdads, uncles, grandpas, brothers, cousins, neighbors, teachers, coaches, and many more do makes a huge difference for the better in the lives of the children they daddy.
Know that all of your efforts for the children in your life are appreciated and world changing, even if they aren’t acknowledged. On behalf of those children, please accept this gratitude. Thank you!
Happy Fathers’ Day!
