Thank you for your touching and respectful article. Unless there is danger or abuse involved, every child deserves a mother and father. I was raised by my mother, who, by her choice, never revealed to me who my father was. I loved my mother and had a wonderful childhood, but yearned to know my dad and have a relationship with him. I felt “less than” all the time I was growing up, even though my mom provided me with great love and care. Not having a father affected me negatively in many ways. It wasn’t until my mom passed away and I was 55 that I found out who my father was. He had passed away many years before never knowing that he had a daughter. It was heartbreaking to me. He never knew that my mom was pregnant. She made a decision to raise me on her own, but it was not her decision to make. My father had a right to know I existed, and I had a right to know him. You are right that both a mother and father brings a special something to the table. Even if the child is not raised by both, he or she deserves the opportunity to cultivate some sort of relationship with the mother and the father. I’m sure you have developed a thick skin, but don’t let the haters get to you. They simply cannot get past there own prejudices to look at objective facts.

Agree with you 100%. Love that you are never afraid to be politically incorrect.

What a ridiculous article. 1. Mind your own business; and, 2. If you insist on sticking your nose in the business of others please come spend some time at my job and you will see a lot of children who should never be in the presence of their mother and/or father.

What complete nonsense. Children have been successfully raised by a single parent for centuries. Ignore the bigots and gay-bashers, Mr. Cooper. Congratulations!
