I wrote a piece for Playgrounddad.com in their "What My Dad Did Right" section, which is pretty ironic when you read what I wrote for them. Still, I was glad for the opportunity, and you should read it.
Have a sample.
So what was it my dad did right? Well, in some twisted backwards way, he’s shown me what to never ever do. I’ve known my son for a matter of weeks, but I already know that if he was taken away from me, I’d go there. Often. I want to know who he’s going to be. I want him to know that he always has my support. I want him to know that he’s going to be loved one hundred percent no matter what he does. It is absolute and final. My son will never have to make awkward jokes on Father’s Day. My son will know what a real father is, because I know how terrible it feels to not know, and I will do everything I can to make sure he has no idea what it was like to grow up like I did.
