I lost my father at a young age. And while my mother never remarried, I have a pretty good idea that I would not have been too receptive of another man coming into our lives although I am sure that is exactly what I needed. I sometimes wonder how different my life would be now.
Now that I am a father myself, and understand the effort that is required to raise children, I can’t even imagine how challenging it must be to also have to try and win over children who have understandably put up emotional barriers to protect themselves.
My dear friends at Budweiser have created this heartwarming short film of three families sho surprise their dads by welcoming them as their fathers and removing the “step” from their titles. I promise it will bring a tear to your eye.
Budweiser wants to hear your stories of a father who stepped up. For every comment on the film on social media, Budwesier will donate $1 to the Stepfamily Foundation, a nonprofit that supports blended families. Click here to share your story.
