I would like to wish all the dads reading “Paul’s Heart” a Happy Father’s Day. And at the same time, I would like to wish all the moms having to fill both roles, a Happy Parent’s Day as well.
Father’s Day has always been special to me. From the first day that I held each daughter in my arms, I knew that I was blessed to have such beautiful, kind, and loving children. They are constantly in my thoughts and in my dreams. Half of their childhood has gone by already, and so quickly too.
Together, we have experienced so much already. You came to me with so much love from a land on the other side of the world. You pulled me through emergencies that none of us had expected, but for certain, if it were not for you, I could have easily given up. My doctor’s goal is a simple one, in spite of everything my body is dealing with, he plans on making sure that I see you graduate, get married (if you so choose), and to be a grandfather (I will hope). So far, he has gotten me 1/3 of the way there.
I love both of you so much Madison and Emmalie. And I always will.
