You are far from the perfect father. But you are one of the more involved ones I know, and for that I am thankful. This is one of the collages I made for Yakee's baby book and I hope you'd smile when you see just how far you've gone as a father, just how many things you've weathered, just how amazingly you've grown as a person. Thank you for not just being the provider of the family, thank you for actually being a father: a friend, playmate, disciplinarian, role model and mentor to our son.
I just know that Yamee will be just as privileged as Yakee had been. But the greatest privilege of all lies with me... for having that first row seat to the beautiful relationship, and influence, you are making in our children's lives.
I love you. We love you. Thank you for taking better care of the you we love.
Mommy, Yakee and Yamee
