“My wife also gets a load of emails from people asking where our son’s father is, as though I couldn’t possibly be around and still allow a male son to display female behavior. To those people I say, I’m right here fathering my son. I want to love him, not change him. My son skipping and twirling in a dress isn’t a sign that a strong male figure is missing from his life, to me it’s a sign that a strong male figure is fully vested in his life and committed to protecting him and allowing him to grow into the person who he was created to be.”
–Matt Duron, a veteran police officer, in his article My Son Wears Dresses; Get Over It
I wish all children had a father like this. Can you imagine how great this would would be?
So true, Diane. Every kid should have a dad like that. Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
I love this dad so much! I tear up every time i see something he has to say about his son. He and the child’s mom are so great. so is the child! : )
So true, Tara. They are fantastic, and it kills me that not every kid who needs a family like this has it.
