24 years ago, I married my sweetheart and became the dad for her five-year-old son. I had a lot to learn, so I listened regularly after I discovered you shortly thereafter. I adopted him a year later.
He’s all grown up now, and I have to thank you for all the advice you gave. He has four wonderful kidlets of his own and he’s a better and more natural father than I ever was. We had two additional kids, who are wonderful, even though they are still teenage weirdos. I still use the mug that says, “I Am My Kid’s Dad,” and I also wear the matching T-shirt! I’m so proud to be called my kids’ dad. As I get older, they all teach me about as much as I teach them. Thanks for being just awesome!
Always going to be my kids’ dad,
