Being a father like Christ

John and Bri Thomas have fostered and adopted children through Buckner International and consider it their calling. John reflects on what it means to be a father and what he loves about being a dad. 

"So as a dad, I always put my best boot forward," John said. "The kids are always looking up to you. They love you. They look at you as a role model. They want to be like you. So you have to put your best boots on. The kind of father I'd like to be is just one like Christ."

Whether you're dad, a dad-to-be or a father figure in someone's life, we hope you have a happy Father's Day.
