This June 17th is not only Father’s day, it is also Neil’s birthday. Neil, my late-husband, would have been 35 this year.
This video shows Alexis and I introducing the song Walk Away, by Ben Harper, and we explain the reason why this song is significant to us.
For all the adopted men in our lives who have been a father to the fatherless, THANK YOU! For every man who has read my daughter a bedtime story, grabbed ice for her split lip, carried her bike after she fell off it (us being blocks from home,) loved her, spent time with her, and supported me, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
For Neil, who spent two years and nine months loving our child, anticipating her, and adoring her, we love you and we remember you.
