My Mr. Wonderful

My Andrew, my husband is my Mr. Wonderful ...
because he didn't have to be.

After a year and a half of dating, I thought I wanted to date other people.  The only problem was I couldn't stay away from Andrew.

When I found out in January 2007 that I was pregnant he could have left.  He could have claimed 'it' wasn't his.  He could have just moved on with his life.

but he didn't ... because he is my Mr. Wonderful

When I tried to make a life altering rash decision for the worse, he could have let me take the easy way out.

but he didn't.  He showed me love and grace and reminded me of my Father in heaven's love for us.

because he is my Mr. Wonderful

When I thought adoption was the best option because I thought that's what other people would expect, he could have accepted the fact that he didn't have to raise a child.

but he didn't.  He fought me with love and support.  He showed me that he could mature and that he was ready to be a dad.  And he asked me to marry him and start a family with him.

because he is my Mr. Wonderful
He changed Leah's first diaper.  He has always been better at swaddling than me.  He showered me after my emergency C-section because I couldn't support myself.  He held me when Leah cried and then I cried.  He is my rock, my best friend and the love of my life.
When the economy downsized two jobs and our second baby was born, he put his career dreams of finishing school aside and overlooked the stereotypes to stay at home with our babies.  He is such a wonderful father, already teaching 2 year old Leah to read.  He even saved her life.

He is the best father to our girls.

He calms me down and holds me strong.  He is the ying to my yang.

He is the spiritual leader of his household.

He is my Mr. Wonderful

and he is the reason we are a family today.

Happy Father's Day Andrew!
