I've been truly blessed with having a father who has always been there for me, always told me I could be anything I wanted, even when society told girls they must live with limited prospects. I know a lot of women who did not have supportive fathers. A father who told his daughter that he'd pay to send his son to college, but never his daughter. Another father who told his daughter she could be a nurse, but not a doctor.
A loving and strong father is the most any child can ask for. Protect them from harm. Guide them towards good.
