This is one wonderful dad, the kind every kid would be lucky to have. This young daughter, with so many problems, could be even more devastated, were it not for the loving attention and care of her dad. He is a true hero.

I know his story. I've lived it, I've seen it though this is not what will pass for "news" on any nightly news show, it is the heart of our humanity and what we should all be, all the time. Even when the cameras are not rolling. We have just met a true American hero.

I agree with Gene. My brother was a single Dad, raised 3 little kids and went to college and on to get his Bachelor's Degree to make his KIDS lives better. I'll never forget that struggle. This man you featured JL, isa true hero, one of many who go unrecognized. Thank you for bringing this to us. What a loving daughter/s as well.
