It is my mission to be intentional, present and nurturing. Forever learning and advocating for the needs of my family and community. - Josh Zawadi, Co-Founder Life reDefined and Melanated Daddy
To my wife and unborn child I promise love, compassion, understanding, patience and intention to be my best, as often as I can. Allow me the grace of my imperfections and I promise they will get lesser in time.
If you both allow me to love you, I will love you both with all my heart. Our journeys will be the most important part of my life and I can not wait to start it and see where we go as a family. Christoper F., Milwaukee 2023
I pledge to be the best father I can be, to support and cherish my family. I promise to always be there for my partner and children, to provide love, guidance, and a safe, nurturing environment.

Thank you to my partner and everyone who has supported me on this journey. Thomas L., Milwaukee 2023
To my pookies, I will always be there when you need me or don’t. I will always be supportive and understanding of one another and will always treat you with the upmost of respect and love as a father should.
I will always be the man you guys need and want and always be a great representative of what you should look out there in the world for a man.
To my pookies I will always love and cherish you as the blessings you are! And will always prioritize family to show family is important and one thing that could never be changed or broken. Santiago H., Milwaukee 2023
It is my mission to take full responsibility for bringing my family together and keeping us together. I will be there for my family in the highest and lowest times.

I aspire to be a model of the love and character of our heavenly Father to my family. Humility, transparency, vulnerability, presence, and a servant-mindset will enable me to progress toward this goal.

I will show them what I want them to know, I will show love and compassion unconditionally. I shall provide a safe place emotionally for my partner. We will share our feelings with one another openly. If I fall twice, I will get up 3 times. I understand I'm imperfect and no body can give 100% all the time. It's ok to not be ok. I will speak life into myself. I will tell myself you deserve to be a parent and you are doing great. JoAaron S. Milwaukee, WI - 2023
I will always be here for my family.
I will always help my partner with anything that concerns our son and beyond.
I will always give myself grace.
