 {Father's Day}

In January, 2003 he met his tiny son J.D.
He was a daddy for the first time~

(Yes, there really is a baby in that blanket)

Six minutes later he met his second son K~

Ten days later his heart was breaking as he said good bye to J.D.~

His heart felt like it would burst with pride as he held his healthy son Jay for the very first time in February of 2005~

This blessed daddy once again welcomed a son, little Noe, into the world in December, 2006~

Her girl hood dreams were often filled with longings for a sweet family all her own. She dreamt of a gentle godly man and a house full of children. Never could she have even begun to imagine the blessings that would come her way. His devotion as a daddy gave her joy beyond compare.

Yes loss and dissapointment were now sprinkled in amongst those dreams, but they couldn't come close to taking the joy from her life. She knew with a vivid clarity that her blessings were innumerable.

~Happy Father's Day~
