I am glad that the court system is doing better at recognizing the value of fathers, and do agree there is further to go.

Every family situation is unique, and I know some pretty amazing families that have been made without a male presence. Sometimes there really isn't a viable alternate choice, and those families should never be made to feel less than.

It isn't a zero sum game; we can give fathers a valuable place in the lives of their children without diminishing the way we value families that are created differently.

Mom to an amazing young adult AS son, plus an also amazing non-AS daughter. Most likely part of the "Broader Autism Phenotype" (some traits).
