Dear Jennifer and Kaytie,
This Father’s Day is different from the rest.
It is the first of many more to come in a new era of our family.
We’ve gone through a lot together to reach this point, and we are a stronger family for it.
I have known you since your conception. Only God has known you longer.
There are some things I want to make sure you know.
God made a choice to make me your father, and so I am your father by blood, but I made a choice to be your father. He made you wonderfully and placed you in my care, and I was scared to death, but from the first moment I held you I knew everything was exactly as it was supposed to be.
I have always been here because I wanted to be your father.
I have always striven to be a good father, because I get to be your father.
This was always my motivation.
It has always been my privilege to be known as the man who is your father; the one to be reckoned with.
Being a father is the greatest role I’ve had in life, because you are my children.
Now I am a grandfather and blessed all over again, because your children are my grandchildren.
The love I have for you will never be diminished, and you can never be replaced in my heart.
I will always be proud of the women you have become despite the mistakes I made, or the things I should have done and didn’t.
You are my children, and I could not have asked for better.
I cannot describe how grateful and joyful I am that you still desire to have a relationship with me.
I will continue to strive to be the father God calls me to be for you - it's a promise He asked me to make, and I will gladly keep it.
You are truly blessings to me now and always.
For all these reasons, and all because of you, Today is my best Father’s Day.
I Love You,
