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.
