Charlotte's Daddy

I am married to a wonderful man. I know that sounds cliche, but I really can not imagine going through the past 5 months without him by my side. I am blessed to have such a supportive partner, and my children are blessed to have such a caring, involved father.

Mike is a hands on father; never questions me when I want to go out and leave him with the kids. After working long days, 2-3 nights a week he walks in the door as I walk out the door to tutor. He bathes the kids, changes diapers, plays board games, reads bedtime stories and all those other things that makes a father a "daddy."

Mike's calm and patient demeanor is a perfect balance for my anxious, sometimes uptight personality. We are truly opposites, but in a good way.

Mike never faltered after Charlotte's diagnosis. Two days after she was born, he very simply said "We raise her just like we raise the older two kids. We are so lucky to have 3 children, there are a lot of people out there that can't have kids." Charlotte is lucky to have such a fantastic daddy, who will always be there for her.

Today, on Mike's 31st birthday, I want to thank him for being the husband and daddy he is and wish him a happy birthday! Love you babe.
