Happy Father's Day to the man who thought he didn't want to even be a father.
To the man who remembers his eldest son's affinity for cooking and buys him a special cookbook for his birthday.
To the man who is the apple of his older daughter's eye, who still, at age 12, runs to the door to greet him at the end of every workday.
To the man who takes his youngest son on adventures.
To the man who captured his youngest daughter's heart from the first day.
To the man who is teaching his sons how to interact with their children someday.
To the man who is raising his sons to be Modern Day Knights in their respect for God, Family, and Country.
But most importantly, on this Father's Day, I want to say thank you to the man who was willing to travel halfway around the world...
...to become a father to a little girl he had never met.
If you haven't read Jim's post entitled "A Father's Love", please take a moment to read it. I almost just used that for a Father's Day post because I knew I couldn't do justice after he wrote that one.

This will most likely be my last post until we're back in the states because of our limited internet access. (Yes, we're back at TGIF again!) So, here's our schedule for the next few days. Tomorrow we have our embassy appointment at 2pm, then hopefully they'll be able to process Nadia's visa before closing time because we plan on being on a 5:30am flight, Tuesday to Philadelphia by way of Frankfurt, Germany. We should arrive in Philadelphia at 4:45pm Tuesday. We will then spend the rest of the week with my parents and 2 of my sisters' families before heading back home to NC on Saturday, June 26th!!!
Happy Father's Day Everyone! Especially to my Dad who is helping take care of our sweet Josi! We'll see you soon!!!
