Every child deserves to have both a father and a mother. There are things that one can do that the other simply cannot. Sadly, we live in a world that more and more children are living in homes without one or the other. I was raised in a single parent home. My mom did a wonderful job raising my brother and I. She did the best she could to be both rolls but there were times when we just needed our dad. It’s not easy to be fatherless on this day dedicated to fathers, I know that first hand.
