Everyone is happy on a sunny day. We smile and feel grateful for the warmth that the sun brings. Many things get accomplished on a sunny day, but what happens when the sun has gone down and the clouds get dark? On this day many people go through different emotions. Some are happy that their fathers are present, while others feel abandoned. Others are grateful to have dads who are alive, even if he only provides for them financially. Some crave the attention of their fathers and wish they could buy 60 minutes of his time or do a crime just to spend time in the cell with their fathers.
On the other hand, we have the fathers who try. They try to provide, support and be a man only to learn that they don’t know how. They too were abandoned and have tried to be different but have no idea how to. The ones in prison trying desperately to change hoping that one day they will get to be a part of their Childs’ life.
To the fathers who have taken the step to adopt, I say bravo. To the fathers who are lost at what their job description entails I say keep trying. To the children who can’t seem to forgive their fathers, I say release. To the children who have the love and support of their fathers, I say share it. Don’t give up on the dads, pray them into being fathers.
To my husband who never got the chance to be a father but in the short space of time proved to me that he has the potential to be a great father, I say there is hope. I pray that God will bless the fruit of your loin and one day we will be blessed.
