Father's Day ~ China Style


This is our 1st Father's Day in Zhongshan ~


I think most Parents would agree....


Father's Day, like Mother's Day, is a favorite day around our house ~


A Day where we MAKE our teenagers hug us!  LOL


A Day when we try to pause and appreciate the gift we have been given....


....the gift of being someone's parent ~


It's not a right , it's a gift we've been given ~


An opportunity to be an important part of a child's life ~


To be in a place where we can influence, speak into, and share in a child's life ~


Not because we earned it or deserved it ~
 but because God chose to allow us to be someone's parent


Adrian is a great Dad ~


Their Daughters' favorite person in the entire universe ~


The kids shared today that he is so much fun, loving, patient.....


Takes them to awesome places!


They feel safe when he is around, 
and always makes EVERYTHING beter ~


I think he does a great job
 giving them a glimpse of what their Heavenly Father is like ~


He is a great example of what a 'Man' really is,
 Someone for them to look up to,
and strive to become themselves ~


Being a Father is a gift ~


And in turn, I think Adrian has become
 a wonderful Gift to our children ~


On this Day, we pause and reflect on what a wonderful
Heavenly Father we all have ~


And thank God for the wonderful Fathers in our own lives ~

We love you Adrian!
