Global Perspective

Daniel Atherton believes Miami is the best place to raise his daughter, Carolina Elena (2), because of the city’s diversity. “Miami has become a global gateway to the world and provides her the ability to learn about many cultures, people and foods all in one place,” he says. “This exposure will allow her to gain experiences that will stay with her for a lifetime.” 

Pure Blessings

For Kenneth Damas being a dad to Isabella (13) and Nicholas (9) is the joy of his life. “Watching these little human beings you created become self-sufficient, loving and caring people is amazing,” he says. “Fatherhood is the most rewarding experience of my life.”

Family Time

Danny & Roger Israel-Sanchez and their kids, Sebastian (13), London (10) and David (9), take spending quality time together very seriously. From family domino tournaments to days spent lazing away by the pool, there’s never a dull moment in their household. “We are fortunate to have each other in this world,” they say. “Words can’t really describe how grateful we are to be dads.”
