I caught this post on MarlaJayne’s blog the other day. She’s right, of course, and I have to ask the same question.

Of all the sorrows our nation does and will face, it is the growing rejection of the need for a dad. Mine means the world to me.

    It’s really sad. I was answering questions about Jared while signing him up for the urology clinic and they were required to ask, “Were you married when he was born into your home?” Even though it’s common, I felt a little shocked by it and thought, “There was a time that would have been a really offensive question.”

    It used to be the accepted standard that people would wait until marriage, but now it’s all about instant gratification. The devaluing of fathers is a really heart breaking side effect. I think it’s the fault of both sexes.

    Thanks for commenting on my post. I really felt “impressed” to write it because although it might offend someone, it’s a growing problem that needs to be addressed.
