My husband received this letter today from the Office of the Governor State of Michigan. Robert was very honored to receive this congratulatory letter from the First Gentleman of Michigan. It is nice to see that there are elected officials that recognize the importance of dads to children, families and society. I am so proud of my husband and all that he accomplishes.
However, I am even more proud of him on a daily basis when I can witness personally how he treats his wife (me) and most of all his son and daughter. Over the last roughly two years I have witnessed Robert go through some very difficult times and I am still amazed looking back at how calm, loving and giving he has been towards me and the children.
I feel like the luckiest woman in the world and we are dirt poor! The way I see his son and daughter respond to him makes me feel even more lucky since we are expecting a child!! This letter is obviously great and what it states is so very true, however I already knew this because I witness this everyday. It is still a shame that Robert's children are denied their God given right to equal time with both fit and willing parents. Robert's children will not even need to see a letter such as this because they will already know that their dad truly is a hero dad!
To deny a child the love, nurturing, education and guidance of one of their fit and willing parents is wrong. It most certainly is not the Christian thing to do!
