Video: Father’s Day; What it Means to be a Father, Dr. Dan Gottlieb

With Father’s Day right around the corner it prompted Publisher, Roseann Vanella to ask Expert Contributor, Dr. Dan Gottlieb, what being a Father means to him.  Dr. Dan has a very unique perspective since his entire world was turned upside down when he was in an accident that left him a quadriplegic.

At the time he was married with two small girls.  He shares how the things he once enjoyed doing he could no longer do.  For years he carried around guilt for not being the Dad he thought he was supposed to be.  Recently he shared his feelings with his oldest daughter who is now a woman and you will be touched to hear her response.  From her response Dr. Gottlieb is able to share with you, what is the most important things Dad’s can do with their children.

To all the Dad’s & especially Dr. Gottlieb, we wish you a very Happy Father’s Day.  Also it is Dr. Gottlieb’s birthday today and his one wish is for all of us to make donations to his charity & his “adopted” children at The Khulani Special School.  Please click HERE to donate, no amount is to small.
