J will always be a Daddy

We Have a Son

You weren’t supposed to be a boy and you weren’t
supposed to arrive so soon. Right from the beginning
we knew you were special.

We have a son with a sense of humor.

From the moment we saw you we knew you were ours.
With daddy’s (incredibly) good looks and mommy’s
fighting spirit how could we not know?

We have a son who possesses the best of our qualities.

Hour after hour day after day you defy the odds.
We get to know you better, you prove the doctors wrong.

We have an exceptional son.

You let mommy do your cares, you listen intently while
daddy doles out promises. You make a mother’s dreams come
true with your touch, you make a father exult.

We have a son willing to share.

While you rest your mother plans for her next visit and your
father shouts your name from the rooftops. You have already
touched so many peoples’ lives you are truly an inspiration.

We all have a son.

You fought ‘till the end making your parents so very proud.
You will always be here with us in our hearts, in our thoughts,
in our actions and in our dreams.

We will always have a son.

—Your Proud Daddy (J)

J - happy Father's Day.

You tribute to Myles is amazing! Brought tears to THIS "macho man's" eyes!

Though you will never forget Myles, with GOD's help (and K's of course) you will be a father once again soon! If this poem is ANY indication, you will make one HELL OF A DAD!!!

Myles will be proud of yoU!

Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. The men who are married to all of my babyloss friends strike me as some of the best dad's I've ever known.
