My Daughter's Keeper is a compelling story of a father's journey to strive against mounting odds to be present in his daughter's life. The story reveals the complexities of parenting as the author wrestles with his past to face self-imposed challenges in order to transition from a man given to selfish leanings, to an
open-hearted and dutiful father.
My Daughter's Keeper tugs on the heartstrings of any parent who has endured the pain and challenges of co-parenting, custody disputes, or separated families. Written with accountability and compassion, it has been crafted to challenge readers to consider the ways our circumstances, including the painful ones, set us up to develop into a better version of ourselves.
"The journey you share with this author is flawed, vulnerable, and tender. Many of the lessons he shares cost buckets of tears and numerous sleepless nights, yet, he offers it to the reader with love, centeredness, and hope. We walk into his choices, into his fears, and even into the courtroom with him, attached by our shared experiences. We see ourselves in his mistakes and recognize our reflection in his work to stay clear about who he is, and what drives him".
