Father's Day

Father's Day. A day to celebrate fathers. This day has been weighing heavily on me since Mother's Day passed. I want to celebrate Jonathan. I know this day is going to be hard for him. We currently have no children living with us, D and A are back with their biological family and Grant is in Heaven. He is still a father. One of the best Daddys I have ever seen.

Jonathan (JaJa),
You are an amazing husband and daddy. You have loved all of our children unconditionally just like you were called to do. You have taught our foster kids what it is like to have a real dad. You have taught them by example what a real man treats his wife and the mother of their children like. They have adored you. Not only have you set an example for our foster kids, you are a dad to Andrea too. You have been an amazing influence on her young life. She has learned what a daddy is supposed to be like from you, something she will never forget. As soon as we found out we were expecting Grant, the smile on your face and your excitement was so precious. You loved him instantly and I know you love him as much as I do. You have been an amazing daddy to him, the best daddy he could ever ask or wish for here on earth. I Love You!

I also want to say happy Father's Day to the man that taught me to play softball, basketball, how to fish, how to hunt, and always cheered me on, Happy Father's Day Daddy.

I have 2 great men in my life that are both fathers. My own dad and my husband. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it weren't for my dad. I wouldn't want to do life without Jonathan and I am so glad he is the father of my children.


  1. Happy Father's Day Jonathan!


  2. Happy Father's Day to your hubby!

  3. Jonathan I am sure you know you name means gift from God. Thank you for being a gift to all the children God has called you to father. May Jesus pour out his blessing on you and give you even more children to be a daddy to. I am sure Grant is telling my Jonathan what a good daddy you are.

  4. A very touchy tribute, Kristy. :)
