TJ….. On a day where Father’s or (Da Da’s) as you say are being recognized all around the world, I write this open letter to explain what being your father means to me, and how you have changed my life.
Being your father has given me purpose. This is by far the hardest job I have ever held in my life, but in just 3 1/2 years, I can also say it has been the most rewarding.
As black fathers are perceived as being absent and, or irresponsible, I love the fact that this doesn’t affect me at all. I have made a lot of sacrifices to ensure that I am here in the flesh, and not just at the mailbox in the form of a check.
