With fatherhood on the attack in the media these days, it seems especially appropriate for all of us to take a moment this Sunday on Father's Day to thank the men in our lives—the ones called "Dad."

Today's dads are creating a new identity, with men being more active and involved fathers. So involved that a new books says a dad's hormones change, too, during pregnancy. Plus, there's been a real shift in the way men talk about fatherhood: They know they're not perfect, but most dads are trying to be hands-on—like it or not, moms!

We've rounded up a few links for inspiration as you stop to thank the special men in your life—whether it's your partner or your own dad—for all that they do all year-round and throughout our lives.
