You may recall a little less than a year ago,  a Chicago court  awarded Miami Heat  NBA player Dwyane Wade sole “care, custody and control” of his two sons.  At that time, Wade told the Associated Press that  “a huge weight is off my back.” “My life changed in a huge way”. “Mentally, I’ve been preparing for it for over a year now. To me, it’s bigger than that. For me, it shows a lot of people that you need to fight to be in your kids’ lives sometimes. You fight until you can’t fight any more. That’s all I was trying to be, a father in his kids’ lives.”  And it appears that since last March Dwayne is doing  that and more.  During NBA weekend, Wad led a led a Fatherhood Heroes roundtable discussion, part of a series of President Barack Obama’s Fatherhood & Mentoring Initiative.  Good job Dwayne may God bless you real good for stepping up!

Miami Heat golden boy Dwyane Wade started off hisNBA All-Star Weekend by reaching out to his fellow dads and presenting a basketball court to a school — all while looking super fly in a double-breasted Versace suit.

Friday morning Wade led a Fatherhood Heroes roundtable discussion on Friday at Orlando City Hall, spreading a message to fathers about the importance of being involved in their children’s lives. For the roundtable, part of a series in President Barack Obama’s Fatherhood & Mentoring Initiative, Wade was joined by White House official Joshua Dubois, special assistant to the president and executive director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Wade was asked to join Obama’s fatherhood task force in 2011, shortly after he gained sole custody of his two sons following a long custody battle with his now ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade.
