“Each child is biologically required to have a mother. Fatherhood is a well-regarded theory, but motherhood is a fact.”-P.J. O’Rourke The theory of fatherhood is the opportunity to be part of the development process of a child’s life. In truth real fatherhood demonstrate love, commitment, sacrifice, and above all willingness to share responsibility….it’s not walking away even when your child has a different ability. Perhaps being a father will be a man greatest source of achievement, pride and even inspiration. It can humble and teach a man about unconditional love, reinforce the importance of being a better human being. Fatherhood changes a mans’ life completely. If you had expectations or not about fatherhood, nothing can truly prepare you for the journey of surprises, blessings and great learning experiences. It’s a 24/7 job that many fathers gladly take on. The staying up late, child crying/screaming, playing ‘baby shark’ over & over, potty training, and cleaning up ‘who knows what’…is exhausting. True fathers have a good time and play with their child, but at the same time fathers balance a serious side to let them know they’re still the parent. Fatherhood is not a matter of station or wealth. It’s a matter of desire, persistent, and resolve for a father to see his child successful. Hearing M say “Dad” is awesome. Yes, being M’s father is really funny, scary, tiresome, and inspiring. It connects me to the world in a new way. M has taught me, as a father, patience and about being happy…I am on an amazing autism parenting journey.
