Let us praise those fathers who, despite divorce, have remained in their
children's lives.Let us praise those fathers whose children are adopted, and
whose love and support has offered healing.
Let us praise those fathers who, as stepfathers, freely choose the obligation
of fatherhood and earned their stepchildren's love and respect.Let us praise
those fathers who have lost a child to death, and continue to hold the child in
Let us praise those men who have no children, but cherish the next generation
as if they were their own.Let us praise those men who have "fathered" us in
their role as mentors and guides.
Let us praise those men who are about to become fathers; may they openly
delight in their children.And let us praise those fathers who have died, but
live on in our memory and whose love continues to nurture us.
