The Media Coverage of the 2008 National Fatherhood Summit in Grand Rapids, MI was truly impressive! Four different TV News stations, 7 Radio Stations and 6 different newspaper reporters were present at this event! My husband, Robert Pedersen, was given a standing ovation for his efforts in promoting this event. It was incredible and I was so happy for him that I had to hold back my tears.
The energy level during the event was high! The breakfast and lunch was excellent! The networking was priceless! The general opinion was that this event was outstanding and we had a full room!
There were people from all over the United States! Alabama, California, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania - just to name a few. Many different orgnizations were present at this oustanding event.
Minister Ronald Smith has clearly become a nationally known advocate and leader. Special thanks for all of the work Children Need Both Parents, Inc put into this summit.
Special thanks to the sponsors of the National Fatherhood Summit: 1) Children Need Both Parents, Inc. 2) Dads and Moms of Michigan & 3) Abundant Life Ministries
