A Letter To My Dad, An Adoptive Father Of 13

“You rescued me. Before I was even born, you chose me through adoption. Before you even saw me, your heart opened to me as your son—a child born as a result of rape. You didn’t care how I came to be only about who I was meant to be.”

Ryan Bomberger’s tribute to his dad, his adoptive father, is a testament to the importance of fathers.
