Father’s Day

‘After a 9-hour drive home she asked, ‘Can we stop at the cemetery?’ There was no question, no hesitation. ‘Of course,’ he said.’: Bonus dad shares act of kindness for grieving daughter

“It didn’t matter that we were all tired. It didn’t matter that we just wanted to get home and take a shower. It didn’t matter that we all wanted to be out of the car. She missed her dad. And when the girl you love is hurting, you do whatever you need to do to fix that.”

‘This man worked a 13-hour day in 90-degree weather, walked through the door and said, ‘I’m home. What can I do to help?’: Woman pens love note to husband, ‘I’m raising our boys to be just like him’

“He is not a ‘unicorn.’ Men like these exist. The kind who wash the dishes after you cook. Who do the yard work because they know you hate it. Who work 60+ hour work weeks and still come home and play with their kids. Who gives the kids baths and puts them down for bed.”

‘You didn’t hear the words ‘it’s a boy.’ You didn’t claim your title like most. But you’re tied to that child by something much stronger than blood.’: Mom says ‘you’re more than a step or bonus dad’

“I was wary of you at first. I was sure we’d scare you off. And part of me wanted to—single parenthood had made my list of requirements pretty tough. But you won me over with ‘bring him too.’ You never ever had to be, and that’s what makes me extra thankful you’re ours.”
