One thought on “Still Loving on Dad?

  1. My husband, Brandon, is the best dad!

    When we adopted two children with special needs in the span of six months, we were new and scared. He tackled parenting with ease. He is gentle, kind, and encouraging.

    In contrast to my scheduled and routine days, daddy comes home after work, and our children know what time it is.

    Even before walking in the door, both of my children hear the truck pulling up and giggles ensues in our home. Brandon wastes no time. He colors with them. He paints with them. He understands their needs, and continues to be as involved as possible with their day to day therapies.

    Two weeks ago we decided to build a fort. Brandon took charge and turned our living room into an awesome fort. All the blankets and pillows in the entire house were now in our living room, but inside our magic fort time stood still. Cell phones were turned off. S mores were cooked. A family movie was put on, and we played. We crawled and discovered well past bedtime.

    Scenes like this are common at our house. Brandon takes a more laid back approach to parenting our children. With Matthew, who is two and medically fragile, Brandon doesn’t see that. He sees his son. The boys are constantly outside working on the “race car.”
    With Autumn, who is two and paraplegic, Brandon doesn’t see a wheelchair. He sees a boat, or a horse, or a plane. Whatever the day calls for, he turns our ordinary into extraordinary.
