I Love Being a Dad


This little boy began to live with my wife and I when he was about 15 months old. When we saw him for the first time, he was in a chair by the road. No diaper and wearing only a tee shirt.

This is one of the earliest photos we have of him. Pictured with my wife.

One thing I noticed about him when he was in this chair by the road, he never smiled. I would make a fool of myself and he would not laugh or smile. My wife asked his great grandparents if we could care for him. We did not know how long he would be in our care. They agreed!

One thing indelibly etched in my mind.

On the 4th evening, after we were feeding him, providing a clean and dry diaper. We gave him lots of love and cuddles. He slept between my wife and I. This night something happened and this precious little boy began to sing.

I cried when I heard him sing. No intelligible words, just joy from his heart.

He is a boy with a glad heart and he has blessed us with such joy in our own hearts.

He is now 6 years old and it is our intent to adopt him

In the Philippines it is a long and costly process to adopt a child. I know one thing, I will be the happiest man alive the day he officially become our son. I mean this in a legal sense as he is already our son and there is no difference than if he was our own flesh and blood.

With joy I am working long hours towards the goal of adopting this beautiful boy. I am proud to be his daddy and blessed to watch him grow.

Thank you for your time.
