Father's Day

Greetings -
Well Father's Day was WAY WAYWAY different from mother's day!  Last week Wednesday we loaded the car and started the trek to Oklahoma to see Kenneth's family!  Most had not met Tariku and all had yet to meet Teddy!  Since it was my weekend without weddings we thought it would be a great time to visit the fam!  So off we went!  We stayed overnight in Arkansas and finished the trip on Thursday late afternoon!  It was great to see the family finally meet both the boys!!!  We spent the next 3 days sightseeing, visiting and thank god playing in the new pool! ( average temp has been over 100!!) - but I will say that Father's Day was the best!  To see Kenneth and his boys playing in the pool with Grandpa and Uncle Jason reminded me just how far these 2 boys had traveled!  They were being loved on unconditionally by their daddy and for just a moment the whole world stopped as I thanked their birth fathers for bringing them into this world.  I prayed that Tariku's Africa Daddy (as he calls him) was looking down from heaven happy with the life his son was living.  I prayed for the heart of Teddy's birth father who left long before Teddy was born - I prayed that one day he would have that unconditional love and bond for a child.  And I thanked God for the man I married that he loves these two little boys with all his heart!  To all the fathers out there we hope you had an amazing father's day and that your children are inspired by the unconditional love you show them everyday!

Wishing you a Magical Day~
