About the Guest
When a dad fills that special place in a child's heart with love and guidance it feels great. But when a dad is missing there's a gap. It's easy to label him a deadbeat dad but I've met a lot of dads who are disconnected because their ex is blocking them or because of physical distance. And sometimes the non-custodial dad thinks it's easier on his kids if he stays away. Well, it's not. Hey dad, you're needed and you can do this. There's a hole in your child's heart waiting for you to fill.
