You Got Me To Where I Am Today

Always Faithful

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.

Having you as an addition to our family has been nothing but a blessing. I cannot tell you how much you have been encouragement to my mom which is an encouragement to me. Thank you for being a devoted father, husband, and man of God.

You may not be my real dad but to be dad all you have to do is be there for your loved ones. Since you've been with my mother you have treated my sister and I like your own and thats what makes you a dad to me. Thanks for being there for the myfamily

Dad, No matter how many hard things our family has faced you were always there for us. At age 21 I still remember you taking time to be with us going fishing together and reading to us. You've always been there when I needed you Thank you. I love U

What a special man you are to to your children and now to mine. You managed to raise your six kids on your own for eight years and now, with open arms, you have accepted my two as if they were your own. You deserve a get-away to Six Flags! I Love You
