Dwyane Wade, the eight-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion for the Miami Heat and winner of a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, has miraculously defied the odds throughout his incredible career. But off the court Dwyane has sought his most cherished goal: being a good dad to his sons, Zaire and Zion. Dwyane begins his story in March 2011 with the news that after a long, bitter custody battle, he has been awarded sole custody of his sons. A Father First chronicles the lessons Dwyane has learned as a single dad as well as past events that shaped his dreams, prayers, and promises.
Though divorced, Dwyane's parents showed him that the unconditional love between parents and children is a powerful guiding force. A revealing, personal story of one of America's top athletes, A Father First is also a call to action—from a man who had to fight to be in his children's lives—that will show mothers and fathers how to step up and be parents themselves.
Dwyane Wade is a guard for the Miami Heat whose Wade's World Foundation has contributed millions of dollars to benefit children and families across America. President Obama recently appointed him to help lead a program geared toward encouraging fathers to become more involved in their children's lives. He lives in Miami, Florida.

I never had heard about Dwyane's childhood before. How sad. Great though that he has been able to rise above it and succeed. Sounds like he is raising his boys right too.Published 7 months ago by Cindy L. Hunt
