"...In reality, a mother's love is important and special, but having an active father figure plays an equally important role in the healthy development of a child." DADpals hosts meet and greets where people fill out questionnaires, play games and get matched. At that point, a dad chooses a pal. From there, DADpals hosts a commitment ceremony and other events for participants to enjoy as a new match. There will be game nights, social events, etc. to facilitate healthy and constructive opportunities for our matches to bond.
