Mr. Shapiro, I have been trying to write my own article about the value of fatherhood for many years, with out success.
As a fatherless child, I write it in my head continuously, but never seem to put it on paper. It's perhaps too painful.
Raising my son has always been the greatest accomplishment of my life.
Many people do not understand the power of being a father, but rest assured, I cry with you.
