When we met, you had no thought of being a father. Your life was child free, and, since you were the youngest in your family, had always been so. The thought of children was far from your mind. Then I came along. I started talking about children from day one. You knew how much I wanted children. You gave them to me.
But, you didn't just give me children. You became a father. You became an amazing father. You spent almost as much time with Gabriel as I did. It seemed as though you had been born to be a father. That hasn't changed. Instead, the bond you share with our children has only gotten stronger. The love you have for them shines through in everything you do.
You are the heart of our family. When you are gone, our heart is gone. When you return, our heart comes back.
You shape our children into better people. You make me a better person. At the end of each day, I think about how much I love you. I know I could never express the love I have for you.
I was so lucky to find you. You are my hero. Each day of our lives, I am thankful that we found each other. I am thankful that my orders got changed to send me to your side.
Thank you for being such a wonderful father to our children. Happy Father's Day!
