My (biological) father was a very ambitious man. He was a teacher, a talented singer, a choir director, and later preached in a Methodist church. In his spare time he was also an award-winning actor in local community theater. He had so many plans for his future, but as a young husband and father of two toddlers I’m sure he also had a long list of concerns and struggles.
