Don’t assume the fatherless will be dysfunctional parents for lack of parental influence.  Parenting is mastered by connecting with the fatherhood of Abba Father.  Furthermore, fatherlessness can actually prepare for parenting:

“So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh.”  ~ Genesis 45:8

It was Joseph’s fatherlessness in prison that prepared him to be a father to Pharaoh.  In prison, Joseph had to find God as his Father.  That’s what made him a father to Pharaoh.
