What does being a father mean to you?
Have you had any obstacles on your fatherhood journey?
My youngest daughter was in the NICU for 58 days. Those were the hardest most emotional 58 days of my life. Imagine having to see your baby girl that you so desperately wanted having tubes down her throat, in her nose, mask over her eyes(jaundice) and them poking her every few hours. I cried countless times and my wife had cancer and had to be operated on all at the same time. I was begging and pleading for the Lord to bring my babies home. They are both super healthy and growing, my 2 year old was born 2 pounds and 15 ounces at the age 2 she’s now 35 pounds and can count to 10, say her ABCs, and recognizes words, shapes, and colors
What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?
If you could write a quick letter to your father, starting with “Dear Father,” what would you say?
Dear Father, this road wasn’t always easy. I’ve done things you told me not to do. I’ve disobeyed you and probably disappointed you at times. Having your granddaughter now I understand everything you was trying to teach me and I greatly appreciate you for that. You’re an awesome man of God and you’ve instilled those same values into me and I will continue your legacy. I love you Dad
