WILLIAM'S STORY - THE IMPORTANCE OF FATHERHOOD
We Got Us Now| Guest Contributor: William
Father's day to me means spending time with our dads showing just how much we love and appreciate them. I say this because without our mothers and fathers there's no telling where we would be. So I thank my mom and my dad for being in my life doing the best they can. Growing up I didn't always have my dad with me so I looked up to a lot of other people. Sometimes it was hard for me to go through life knowing I had a father who I didn't know even existed.
Even though me and him didn't spend much time together when I was growing up, I'm grateful to know I met the person who I've heard so much about.
