A while back, I hosted a “Real Dad Moments” photo contest over on my Single Dad Laughing Facebook page. There were so many great photos submitted. So many beautiful moments. So many tender and awesome bits of your lives that you shared. Looking through the 800 or so photos made me so happy because it was a beautiful reminder of all the real dads out there. It was a poignant reminder that fatherhood is not defined by race, beliefs, or social status. Good and real dads come in every shape, color, size, and age.

I hope these photos make your day just a little brighter. Maybe they’ll make you appreciate the good dads in your own life a little more. I know they did that for me. Enjoy.

Oh, and if you suddenly stopped seeing most of the SDL posts, you're not alone. Recent changes to what is shown on your wall were implemented, and it's out of our control. To help with this: go to the page and do two things: first, enable "follow," and then make sure you have it set to receive notifications for new posts. Of course, the more you interact with different posts on the page, the more Facebook will show you in the future. Hope this helps!
