I acknowledge the fathers like me, who have had a miscarriage and/or stillbirth, and those fathers who have lost a child at birth or in infancy. Father’s Day without a child can be just as difficult for a father as Mother’s Day is for a mother. We need to be sensitive to the needs of fathers, too. So I say this to my fellow fathers, I share in your sorrow this Father’s Day and validate you all in fatherhood.
