The chapter headings of this letter addressed to a birthfather state succinctly this pamphlet's contents: "The Boxing Match," "Doing the Right Thing," "Rights and Responsibilities." The male who reads this book may doubt that he is a child's father, suspect that he is, or know that he is. His paternity cannot be proven until the infant is six-months old when a blood test can be made. Most men or youths that abandon mother and child do so because they do not know what else to do. The author's purpose for writing this pamphlet-letter is to try to tell the putative birth father what he thinks doing the right thing means and entails.
