statistical data...


According to the 2016  

US Census Bureau a    little over 20% of   children lived in a home where their father was not present compared to 1968, when only 10% of children lived in a similar situation.  Truly, we have increasingly become a nation where fatherlessness, for some families, is a real fact of life.
