My Almost Dad by Chuck Hartman
My Almost Dad
It Must Be A Weed

My Almost Dad came about through mentoring a child who had lost his biological father.  There was a stable, caring adult in his life who he referred to as his almost dad.  I have two great-nephews who, in their early stages of development, occasionally called
me da-da.  Other children have called me uncle, dad, or some other term which identifies me as a nurturer or an almost dad.

 

I challenge you, the reader of this narrative, to think about the children you have helped guide through both the perils and delights of childhood.  My sincerest hope is that you will be moved to impact at least one child positively and profoundly.  Perhaps that child will one day say that you are their almost dad.

“It must be a weed,” thought young Blue Bird, “Anything in the wrong place must be a weed.  It’s a shame to waste such beauty on nothing more than a weed.”

      Thanks to a very wise owl, Blue Bird discovers everything has purpose.  Even a flower growing outside a garden.
