If you ask any of my kids who their favorite parent is, I suspect all three of them will say, “Dad!” And I admit it — he is a better parent. He is more patient, a better listener and he is funny (at least he tries to be and right now the kids still think he’s funny).
When it comes to parenting kids with disabilities, there are some dads who are in the spotlight, working tirelessly to bring awareness and acceptance for our children. They speak about the different conditions their children have and donate their money, time and effort towards supporting organizations they believe in. Yet perhaps what is most powerful is hearing them share about the love they have for their kids and everyday stories we can relate to.
