Dwayne Wade Gets '2011 Fatherhood Award'

He didn’t win an NBA championship, but he’s definitely winning in his personal life.

Miami Heat player Dwayne Wade is the 2011 recipient for the “Fatherhood Award” from the National Fatherhood Initiative.  Wade recently won full custody of his two sons, Zaire and Zion.

The INFI’s president, Rolan C. Warren,  had the following to say about Dwayne:

“This Fatherhood Award™ reflects Dwyane’s commitment to being the kind of dad his sons need him to be. He gives dads everywhere a great example of what it means to be an involved, responsible, and committed father.”

Dwayne is also thrilled about this honor:

“I am so thrilled to be given this award, especially because it is in recognition of most important thing in my life, my kids. Nothing in the world compares to the happiness that they bring me each and every day.”

“I know that my biggest responsibility is to be there for them 100% and to demonstrate to other fathers that it is possible to be a strong male figure in your children’s lives regardless of what else is going on in your life.”

Now that’s a good look.
