A First Time Father

Since 2009, Cedric Collins has been an active commissioner for the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood. He also is the legislative liaison for the Ohio Department of Youth Services. However, Cedric has a whole new perspective on fatherhood since the recent birth of his first child, a baby girl named Caydence Marie. We asked him several questions about this exciting, pivotal moment in his life. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl, Cedric!
