Father’s Day is tomorrow and Norman Tipton, father of three, knows his children are planning a surprise for him alongside their grandmother.
Fourteen years after welcoming his first child, he looks back at the family he is raising. On paper, he is doing it all by himself: gay single dad by choice. But, as the famed saying dictates -- “It takes a village to raise a child” — so it must take a whole lot more to raise three.
“I don’t know how I would do it without my family,” Tipton said. “For me it’s critical. I’m very fortunate and blessed.”
