Be Involved Stay Involved

beinvolved

No longer is it enough for a dad to say he wants to be involved in his child’s life but we must want to stay involved throughout their whole life. Over twenty-five million American children (or 33.5 percent of children in the U.S.) live absent their biological father. (Krieder, 2005). No what status of life you may be in, join San Antonio Fatherhood Campaign and “I am a Be Involved-Stay Involved Dad!”.
