Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers in our village, especially Brian.

I remember the day we found out we were going to be parents. The dreams we had for our kids, our family, the talks about what we wanted for our future and then finding out we were expecting twins. We took sometime to adjust to that and continued on our journey. We have come a long way, our dreams have changed but we have them. We have learned "to smell the roses". It has been a road. We have learned so much about being parents, you have learned so much about being a father... A DAD. You cherish all that there is in being a DAD. Yes we get frustrated, just as any parent. You have learned patience, that to comes and goes. You pick up when I need a break, you pick up when I need help, we do it together, and for that I am grateful.

Becca and Ian, as do I, love you with all our hearts. You are there for us, for our family, to help make our ever changing dreams come true, to learn how to accept who we are with all our limitations. Being a parent is a wonderful gift, being a parent of a medically challenged child is a special gift...together we have learned how to be both a parent and a parent of a medically challenged child..thank you for being a DAD.

Remember to be true to yourself. Treasure yesterday, Dream of Tomorrow but Live for Today.
