Miller spent three weeks in the hospital and was sick a lot his first two years, but he grew to be a healthy child. The experience awakened Shoemaker to the realities and risks of premature birth.

As a real estate developer, Duane Dillard wears many hats. In the past year, he's added another - limousine owner. Dillard said he purchased a white stretch limousine from a friend in Greencastle, Pa., who was moving to Florida. "I bought it a year ago for less than a riding mower, seriously," Dillard said. Since he bought it, Dillard has added his own personal touch to the rear bumper, a bumper sticker that reads "It's OK to have too much fun!" It's a philosophy that Dillard believes in. Since the purchase, Dillard has used the limousine for the enjoyment of friends and family.

About 11 years ago, a billboard outside Milwaukee caught my eye. It featured a sad-looking baby and big bold red words: ANYONE CAN BE A FATHER, BUT IT TAKES A REAL MAN TO BE A DAD. That was a wake-up call. I was a young father at the time. My daughter was 4 or 5 months old, and I was still fumbling around with changing diapers, my career, my marriage and a looming relocation back East. I saw that giant sign as a huge reminder that I needed to step it up and be a man. “Take this more seriously, Kohler, you have people depending on you.” Like most men, I've stumbled plenty since then, but I've always tried to keep the responsibility and joys of fatherhood as the main focus of everything I do. I really felt like I officially became a man when my daughter, Madison, was born.
