As we watch what is happening at the border with children being taken into custody as their parents try to cross the border illegally from Mexico into the United States, it breaks our hearts,
However, how are we feeling about fathers and sometimes mothers who are denied access to their children here in this country? Yes, there are many stories of dead beat dads and missing men but how about those who are looking to be an important part of their children’s lives but the relationship is strained with the significant other?
There are many organizations that are helping those parents and in honor of Father’s Day last month, I interviewed the owner of one such organization, Ajawavi Ajavon, owner of DAB Mediation Consulting, LLC.
