I knew Eric would be an amazing father long before I married him. I was looking for not just a husband to fall in love with but also one that had all the characteristics of a great father and role model. Eric is loving, faithful, devoted, energetic, patient (usually), calm, adventurous, resourceful, intelligent, outgoing, loyal, and committed.
Our hope and dream was definitely raising our threechildren together. But ALS is wedging itself in between our parenting roles leaving Eric and I at polar opposites— my role being eliminated and Eric carrying the burden of going it alone.
There is great comfort in knowing my children will have an amazing father to continue to take care of them. Eric has demonstrated true tender loving care so I have confidence that my children will be in good hands under his wings.
Happy Father’s Day Eric. We love you. From our little party of 5.
