22 Single Dads Who Are Breaking The Stigma Surrounding Single Parents.


After the mom's death during the birth delivery, people helped the dad recreate recordings of the mom's lullabies for the baby.

Being a parent isn't easy, let alone being a single parent. When you have two parents, there's a balance between the two. When you're on your own, however, you have to act as both the father and the mother. Playing both roles can be difficult, but these single fathers are showing everyone how it should be done.

Single dads who are raising daughters have an even more unique challenge as their daughters don't have a woman role model to relate to in the household. But sometimes taking one for the team with some makeup or nail polish is all it takes. Anyone can have a child, but it's love and effort that makes you a parent.

The dad also plans on completing the wife's bucket list together with his new son.
