Dwayne Wade Gains Custody of Children

After an ugly battle in court with ex wife, Dwayne Wade has been awarded custody of his two sons. Wade made this statement about the court hearing and the custody trial between him and his ex wife, Siohvaughn Wade.

“I am very thankful that the court has given me custody of my boys and they are already at home with me in Miami and settling in.Going through a custody trial was difficult and I wish it hadn’t been necessary, but, I felt it was the only way that I could continue to play an active part of my kids’ lives and provide them with a happy and stable home. My hope is that their mother will also choose to play a healthy role in their lives and we can all move on from this in a positive way.”

Besides knowing the amount of time a player does NOT spend at home makes me question if an athlete is truly capable of being a good enough parent being the time restraints they would have with them. Judge Renee Goldfarb issued a very strict ruling including who will have custody of the children during holidays, All Star Weekend, and even down to IF the Heat make the NBA finals.

Do you feel that an athlete could truly be there for growing children and play the role of a parent? I feel like these two boys will start to grow a very strong bond—–with a nanny.
