Guest Blogs for Father’s Day Weekend

This is the 4th entry in my series on Fatherhood this month.  Enjoy!

__________________________________________________________

Hey everyone!  Father’s Day is almost here!  I’ve had the great fortune of having two really wonderful groups reach out to me regarding guest blogging on their sites and I’ve really enjoyed the experience so far.  I’ve featured both of these sites before and both have published a post of mine in time for Father’s Day and I wanted to share them with you:

The Mighty

The Mighty reached out to me again and wanted to publish one of my previously-written blogs from this site.  Of course I agreed, hoping it would be able to provide some help to people.  I encourage you to take the time and read it again and learn about some self-care techniques…and then share, of course!  The article is titled “To the Stressed Dad Worrying About His Child’s Health”:

Pediatric Congenital Heart Association

I’ve had a blast working with PCHA as a blogger and an advocate for CHD research.  They work so hard to push for more research and a better future for our kids and I really encourage you to get involved.  Recently they published a guest blog post of mine that has shown to be extremely popular so far and I wanted to share it with you.  It’s titled “5 Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Heart Dad”:

The HLHS Dad on The Mighty!

This is the third entry in my series on Fatherhood this month.  Enjoy!

I’ve had the great honor of having a post I wrote featured on the website The Mighty (themighty.com).  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the site, it’s a really fantastic website where powerful stories are shared about/by individuals or families facing disabilities, disorders, or chronic health conditions.  It’s updated very regularly and I can’t say enough about how amazing these stories are.  There are even several stories on there about CHDs, even before this knucklehead showed up.

To stick with the theme of Fatherhood this month, I wrote about how Nolan’s battle with HLHS has made me a better man.  I would be really thankful if you took a moment to read it here (and share!):

As a man, as a husband, and as a father, I will forever be a work in progress…so by no means does this article mean I have it all figured out.  Far from it.  In fact, I would love it if a couple years down the line I would look back at this and think about how far I’ve come even since then.  It’s a marathon, friends…let’s no forget it.  But we’re running together and the goal of it is for all of us to win it…together.
