"To be a Dad...
by Christy Martinez-Garcia
Vol. 17, Issue 6,
This month's June cover of Latino Lubbock Magazine features a first-time dad. Father’s Day is an important day of reflection for those who not only want to pay homage to their biological fathers — but also to individuals who provide love, shelter, food, and safety for their families. No child should ever be in a situation where they do not have someone to call dad. A dad is far more than someone who contributes to a person’s genetics. Biology is not a requirement to be a dad. Being a dad does not end once the child becomes an adult. I wager that it is just the beginning of another phase. Being a dad is a lifelong commitment. Happy Father’s Day, Feliz día del Padre to the men who have stepped up and pride themselves in the children they love and care for! Have a wonderful day!
