"Knowing that I am the only father that they will ever have, being the best role model they could have, and showing them as much love as possible. When I hear her say daddy, that fills my heart so full of love. One of the reasons to get help was to be a better father and husband. Being in our children's lives is worth the fight"
Jaime O. 30 Apple Valley, MN

"What I have done to be a better father is come to the realization that I'm not going to succeed in life with a drug addiction. After finding God It has helped me not only become sober but has also transformed me into the father figure and spiritual leader I am called to be. My goal as a father is to lead my son into the life that I never had."
Keith Z. 50 Medford, MN
"Being a father gives you a chance to lead, to teach, and to set a good example for your child. It is probably the hardest job in the world, but it is also one of the most rewarding! I love being a father!!"
