I have teens. We fight. Nothing on earth is more natural. I always have one goal in mind when I find myself in that situation: No matter how much my child hates me when the fight is over, I want them to understand how much I love them.

When people say, "Those boys are so lucky!" I'm quick to counter that I am the lucky one, to be entrusted with their care. Maybe that's my sign at the grocery store, a succinct description of a single gay man who adopted older biological siblings: "Lucky-dad parking."

In thinking about fatherhood on Fathers Day, I thank all those men, biological or adoptive dads or father figures, who through their involvement have been lifting up new generations of young people so they can grow into the kind of responsible and interesting adults I see in my sons.
