Hi,

Just when you start to inappropriately focus too much on the challenging things about being a dad, a person comes a long with a compliment and an idea that just makes your day and recognizes the hard work we do as Dads of Disability.

Today, in the snail mail, I received this letter and a jacket patch from a connection on Facebook I only met online and corresponded with probably once. This dad started a closed group called C.L.A.D. — Caring Loving Amazing Dads.  And apparently, I ranked!  Cool…

Along with the letter came the C.L.A.D. arm patch. My first merit badge since I was in scouts!

The little things that some dads will do for other dads is pretty amazing.  More about this in a longer piece at another time. I just had to share this with you!

If you are interested — and worthy — of being a member of the C.L.A.D. crew, please contact Christopher at chrissobel82@aol.com or private message him on his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/christopher.sobel

Have a great day!

Hi,

I posted the final free selection of essays and poems from the book. This is free for download. (Final update 11-March-2014.)
