“As a dad, I want my child to be whatever they want to be. I’m not going to get in the way, because their goal is not my goal. My goal is to make sure they are healthy and strong enough to go pursue their goal. So that’s what I want for them. I want them to have their own dream, because I already have my dream — we had twins and they are beautiful, healthy babies.
My message to every dad is count your blessings. Look forward to being a great dad every year that goes by. Don’t take this life for granted, because you only get one life and your last name lives on through your children, so that’s who you live for.”
