NBA Star Dwyane Wade has become a role-model for single dads since being awarded custody of his children after his divorce.
Wade has been credited as being a good example of a responsible black father and he’s sharing his story in a book.
Entitled, “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball,” Wade shares his dreams, his struggles, and his rewards of being a father.
“As a child, I grew up with aspirations to one day be a professional basketball player, and I am living that dream every day as a proud member of the Miami Heat,” Wade said. “However, the daily role I play in the lives of my two children is the single most significant undertaking of my life, and the job I take most seriously.”
Recently, Wade participated in the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend’s Fatherhood Heroes round table discussion.
