Family Unity Day 2017
Twenty-four million children in America — one out of three — live without their biological father in the home. Forty percent of the children living in fatherless homes haven’t seen their father in over a year, and 26 percent of absent fathers live in different states than their children. Children in an intact family have unlimited and unrestricted time and access to both parents. However with divorce or separation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 82.2 percent of custodial parents are mothers, and 17.8 percent are fathers. Additionally, the percentage of children born outside of marriage has skyrocketed often leaving non-custodial parents (mostly fathers) with limited parenting time. Virtually every major social pathology has been linked to fatherless children: violent crime, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy, unwed pregnancies, psychological disorders and even suicide.
The Bottom line is we must find a way to reconcile our differences and unify our families.
