We'll focus on "Fatherhood" this week with a show dedicated to dads. We'll meet a D.C. teen who will have his young daughter in tow as he graduates from high school. We'll talk with a same-sex couple about their decision to become dads. Plus, we'll hear the tale of a dedicated dad... who just happens to be a great horned owl.


[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts by John Davis from Title Tracks / "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass from Herb Alpert's Ninth]
