“I could brag and go on and on about my husband and what an amazing daddy he is to our medically complex daughter, and what an awesome support partner he is to me.
Her birth was complicated, my c-section was unexpected, her 2.5 month NICU stay and concurrent hospital re-admission and chronic illness could be enough for many dads to mentally ‘check-out.’
Instead, it’s drawn us closer as a couple, and he’s stepped up, working even harder in his career so that I can take leave from mine to tend to her needs. He’s been a complete gem during this entire scary process.
We have three other kids from previous marriages, and I always saw him as a great father (and step father), but I see him in a whole new light being the dad to our daughter. There’s no better person on this earth for me to take this journey together, and our baby is incredibly lucky to have him as her daddy.”
