I was raised at an early age by my mother and grandmother. Surrounded by sisters. Now I’m married with two daughters and a mother-in-law who lives in an apartment over the garage.

I’m a good father. I know this because I care. I openly love. There are no secrets between me and my daughters. I’m a good father because I have a reference point, two actually, to what it’s like not to be. But mostly I’m a good father because I’m a good man – and for that I owe my wife thanks. Besides, without her I’m no father at all.
