Father's Day is a time to honor the men who have played a fatherly role throughout our lives. Whether it be your biological, adopted, step, or what we like to call "House Dads," these men have taken a stand to caring and giving their unconditional love.
A couple children from both the Girls and Boy's home wanted to share a few words on why they are grateful to have their HouseDad.
J.T. AND LAMAR, THIS IS FOR YOU!
To Lamar, from the Girls:
”Happy Father’s Day, Mr. Lamar.
You are the best father figure I ever had. You are a great person to come and talk about the problems I have. I don’t know who wouldn’t even want you as a father. You are awesome. God bless you!!” - D.
“Dear Mr. Lamar,
You have been an absolutely amazing house dad these past few years. There have been many ups and downs over the years, but you have never left us. You story gives you an upper hand in bringing us up in ways of righteousness. You truly understand what we go through. What I really love about you is that you are always the voice of reason. All you have to do is wrap your arms around me and squeeze all the anger out of me.
This Father’s Day, I just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort you have put into me. You have been an amazing dad and I love you so much!” - N.
