What About Fathers
By Colleen Davis & Patrick PW Davis

We have only heard stories of deadbeat dads dropping seeds and bailing or rich fathers who never spend time with their children and leave the single mothers to struggle, knowing they do not have the financial means to hire an attorney to fight them in court to enforce court-ordered child support. Being the inquisitive, non-judgmental person who has a deep calling to fight for what is right, Colleen Davis was compelled to share his story and the multifaceted battle he faces every single day as a single black father, loving family man, and dedicated provider of security and safety for his family. This biography tells one single black father’s story. It is a never-ending story of perseverance, strength, and a deep love for family.
