“Joan Cartwright is a dynamic and influential force within the Global Creative Community. It is an honor to be presented with the opportunity to welcome her to the Global Dialogue on Fatherhood and feature her article ‘Daddy’s Girl’ in the Autumn 2008 issue of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD®. Through ‘Daddy’s Girl’, Ms. Cartwright not only pays tribute to her Dad, Mr. Uriah Cartwright, but she also reminds us how important Dads are in the lives of their children – especially their daughters,” commented Diane A.
