What does being a father mean to you?
Being A Father Is A Blessing To Me , Though I Was Not Fond Of The Idea Of Becoming And Not Being Married Or In A Healthy Situation. I Had To Put Aside My Differences With My Sons Mother And Told Her We Are In This Together To Nurture, Care For And Make Sure Our Baby Boy Is Well Taking Care Of/Protected.
Describe your experience with your father growing up and how that impacted you today.
My Father Was Present Then Become Absent In My Early Years , There Was No Hate Toward Him Or For Him Just Knew I Had Helped From A Single Mom Then Mom Father For That Time . One Day Thinking As A Man We Will Talk And Connect . So It Just Made Me Want To Be More In My Child’s Life And At The Time I Was Not Close To Parenthood .
What things did you take from your experience growing up into your own fatherhood journey?
I’m Still In The Beginning Stages Of Fatherhood , Though I’ve Taking Part In Raising 5 God Children And My Nephew.
What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?
All The Love You Wanted And Missed Give It To Your Children , They Did Not Ask To Be Here Nor Do They Deserve Anything Lees Then Love.
If you could write a quick letter to your father, starting with “Dear Father,” what would you say?
Dear Father, My Son Is Innocent He Is My Son , I Am Your Son I Always Wondered What Life Would Have Been If You Stuck Around. Would We Have Had More, Better Setting, Better Understanding To Things. I Forgive You For All Things, You Will Eventually Have To Take Those Issues Up With God. I Hold No Grudges I Love And Forgive You As God Does Us . Wish You Can See Me As A Parent And As A Man Grow.
