Happy Fathers Day
I would like to wish my husband a Happy Father's Day. Even during the planning stage of starting our family Ray took to fatherhood with extreme ease. He started researching products, reading up on baby literature, and looked into college funds. Now over the past 35 weeks he has shown such passion for his child that I am in awe of the man he has become since knowing of Emma's existence.
Ray is always there for me and his child, he never misses an appointment, and has been involved in all areas of this pregnancy, from making decisions about the nursery decor, researching safety ratings for her car seat, to being selective about what she will wear.
Some say that fatherhood, like motherhood, does not begin until the birth of your child, I disagree. Since before conception we have been planning and saving for our child. While pregnant over these past 35 weeks we have had to make decisions for our child to guarantee as much as possible that she has a safe, healthy, and happy life that only her parents can give her. Ray has seen to every detail of our health and happiness with the utmost care.
So to my husband, you are and will continue to be one of the greatest fathers of all time. I look forward to growing with you in our roles as parents to help guide, love, and nurture our daughter.
