for Exiled Fathers
father? Fathers don't give birth! The male equivalent to "birthmother"
would have to be "ejacuation father" - sounds pretty
bad, doesn't it? And for "tummy mummy" what would we
be, a "dick daddy"?" - a natural father.

A natural father's tribute to the daughter he is searching for.
Note: The terms "unwed" father, "birth
father", "biological" parent make a parent appear to be less
than the mother or father they are. These terms dehumanize and limit
the parent's role to that of an incubator. Using the honest terms
"father", "single father" or "natural father"
help the public to understand why real family members must not be
separated to obtain babies for adoption.
