Our daughter, our blessing, came to us at just the right time and has been just that. She has an aweesome voice, is a talented writer and has a such a heart of compassion that even her dear old dad looks up to her! She has been an encouragement and blessing to her parents and we are so thankful God gifted us with her presence seventeen years ago.
Our son, our miracle, was just that. We did not think we could have kids anymore after my wife had complications during her first pregnancy. Yet one day, many years after disposing of our baby items, this miraculous bundle of energy came along. He loves to play soccer, wrestle with dad and create worlds of adventure with his Lego.
A Blessing and a Miracle.
I am a proud to be a papa. Not everyone is so lucky.
In addition to my two awesome kids, we have had the privelage and honor of sponsoring three wonderful kids via Compassion. Our first, Tsehay, was from Ethiopia and we decided to sponsor her after seeing her precious photo at a Rebecca St. James concert. We decided to sponor another child after Tsehay grew up and graduated the program. Our second child, Luiz from Brazil, left the program after a few months when he moved away. We then found little Wycaro, also from Brazil. His letters are so cute and he shares many interests with our own son.
All three of our Compassion Kids photos are on our fridge and we have written many a letter back and forth over the years. These kids are part of our family. We have all read the letters, looked at the photos and sent pictures, drawings and other things to our kids over the years.
This Father's Day, why not become a Proud Papa to a child in need?
