At age 5 our family had a house fire and lost everything. At age 6 my mother passed away in her sleep leaving my dad to raise me and my 5 teenage brothers and sisters on his own. He worked many jobs to provide all that we needed, taking lower paying jobs so he could be home to spend time with us. Through all the struggles that we went through, he never lost his faith in God and always made sure that we didn't either. When I was 13, my dad met a special lady on the internet. I'm 15 now, my dad married his special lady and we moved from Iowa to Illinois. Our family has grown to a family of 8 kids now. Thank you dad for everything you've done.
