This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right series I wanted to share with you some dads who are like people you see in comic books. It is almost like you can call them Dadvengers. From creating groups where you can feel connected or sharing their fatherhood journeys, these dads are doing it right. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below.

For Adrian, being a twin parent is hard enough doing it as a pair. Therefore, waking up that morning realizing that he had now had to go it alone as a single dad left him feeling lost. He knew very early on that the only way he could do this was to let go of hurt and focus on the twins. Adrian is a single dad talking about his journey to help other single dads out there.
