“Fatherhood has been an amazing journey for me.
When I met my wife, she had a young boy, George, who was 4 1/2 at the time. I quickly fell in love with George, which was easy to do. I grew up not knowing my father and I found myself not only yearning for that role, but welcoming all the challenges that come with it.
few years later my wife and I were married, and then had our daughter, Charli. Another piece of my story was having a sibling that I never got to grow up with. Now I found myself having a son who could be the big brother I never had the chance to be, and a daughter who had me absolutely wrapped around her tiny perfect finger.
My household and childhood wasn’t always, to put it lightly, very pleasant. There are days where I wonder if I’m doing this whole dad thing right. But when in doubt, I think about the life I have provided for my children, and the man that they see before then day in and day out.
I realize that I am light years ahead of what I needed when I was a child. And that brings me comfort and satisfaction and I know that I love my children with every fiber in my being and as long as I walk this earth they will always have me to guide and protect them.”
