"Father” is defined by the American Academy of pediatrics broadly as the male or males identified as most involved in caregiving and committed to the well-being of the child, regardless of living situation, marital status, or biological relation. A father may be a biological, foster, or adoptive father; a stepfather; or a grandfather. He may or may not have legal custody and may be resident or nonresident. At Orchard Pediatrics we celebrate and support all of our fathers!!
