A Letter To My Dad, An Adoptive Father Of 13

Ryan Bomberger’s tribute to his dad, his adoptive father, is a testament to the importance of fathers. It’s a testament to the beauty that a loving, passionate parent can bring into the world through his children. It’s a reminder that challenging beginnings can be overcome through love and stability.
