“When I became a dad to my daughter Ayven, I thought my life was complete — she shares so much of my adventurous spirit and we have a great time together.
Then, six years later, my son Quinn was born. Doctors didn’t think Quinn would make it because he is missing 263 genes!
While Ayven easily excels in just about everything she tries, even the simplest daily tasks are a big challenge for Quinn.
While my son might never be able to do all of the active things Ayven and I do together (like go-carting, whiffle ball, and treasure hunting) he and I have found our own way of chilling together (he loves when I read to him or make up silly songs about why his tiny socks are always missing).
There is no ‘one size fits all’ guide to being a good dad. I just try to love my kids for who they are, and that’s been an awesome journey so far.”
