StandUpGirl dad with son

Hi I can’t help but notice that a lot of guys don’t want to be dads and I just don’t understand it. I’m a dad and I am so grateful that God gave me my son he is truly the greatest blessing in my life. My wife and I don’t earn a lot of money and raising a child is very difficult but with Gods help we find a way. We have just discovered that my wife is pregnant again and it will increase our problems but I’m not unhappy. In fact I am so happy I wish to scream it to the world. Having a child is amazing I often just sit and watch my son who is 3 now and I am amazed watching him discover his own abilities and failures.

It is something I could do all day. And no matter how tough things get or how naughty he can be when he comes over to me puts his arms around me and squeezes me with all his might then looks up and gives me a kiss and says, “I love you daddy”, I know that I did the right thing in having him in that moment nothing else matters and I know I would gladly lay down my life for him. I really can’t wait for my next one. The point is no matter how tough things may become I promise you your child will be worth it there is no price to pay or burden to carry or pain to endure that could ever make you regret the choice to keep your child.
