Father’s Day Sentiments

What does being a father mean? “Fun,” was what my son said immediately. “I love Daddy because he helps other people have fun at work,” responded my daughter. Love, compassion, silliness, structure, positive boundaries, and fun are what describes the father in our home.

Silas shows our children everyday what being a father means and the unconditional love that our kids know innately. We are further surrounded by two amazing grandfather’s that teach them daily things we never would have thought of.

We are so grateful for all the amazing men that continue to show up as fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and cousins. Not everyone has these steady male role models. We are fortunate. Today is their day. Thank you for shaping the next generation of men that are allowed to show emotions, love, and compassion. We love and see you.

To all those that are fathers not in the traditional way, thank you. To those fathers that adopted and foster your children your strength is amazing. “To her the name of father was another name for love.” -Fanny Fern
