None of us have to compete for the best Dad because we can all have a Heavenly Father who is awesome.

 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Romans 8: 15-16

 Though my father and mother forsake me,  the LORD will receive me   PS 27:10
