Happy (belated) Father's Day to all the blog readers. We have had a whirl of activity around here and just haven't had a chance to sit down and blog. Father's Day was fabulous as we were blessed to spend both Saturday and Sunday with both our Fathers. Below I wrote a little something special about the Dad's in my life.
First, my husband. You are such a good Father. I am proud of you and love you for so many reasons, but I have to say seeing you with our boys is pretty close to the top of that list. I love that you play with them, wether it is video games, or baseball, or golf, or UNO and even read to them on occassion (definitely not on his list of favorite things to do:) I love that you pray with them and for them. I love that you already love Isabel and that I am with you on this journey. I found this poem, and although it's a little cheesy, it sums up how I feel. The day the you were born, I'm sure God already knew That one day we would meet and I would fall in love with you. For I have seen his blessings and I've felt his guiding hand Leading me to share my life exactly as He'd planned. With a good husband who has shown me how loving God can be...My husband, friend, and soulmate, who means all the world to me.
To my Dad. I told him recently that he was one of the reasons I really started thinking of adoption. When I was 2 he married my mother, as a child he adopted me, he gave me his name. He sacrificed for me, probably more times than I even know. He provided for me. He took on the responsibility of me. He loved me as much as he loved his biological daughters. He is my Dad and I am proud to say so. I know that love is very often a choice, and he chose to love me, chose to call me his daughter. In the very same way, partly due to his example, we are choosing to love Isabel.
Happy Father's Day!
