"Hello Andres, welcome to the hood (fatherhood) and congrats on the birth of your daughter. I have 4, first was a girl, next 3 boys.

"Thanks for the comments. I didn't have rites of passage activities growing up. They comment in the book that the rites of passage over the past few decades have been blurred. Not sure why that is, different reasons for…"
