He sprinkles stardust over their lives."

if you remember he is someone today."

Definition of a successful father: a man willing to make substantial, long-term sacrifices of his time, money and personal fulfillment and dedicate his efforts to rearing the next generation.

These seven fathers are my heroes.

Awesome photos! I love that fathers today are so involved with their kids. That was seldom the case when I was growing up. I had a lovely father, but I remember taking a day trip with him. I agonized for days before the trip because I didn't know what to say to him.
