A very special JH2D Father's Day greeting

Anna, her Mom, and little sister Kara
Without a remarkable young woman, Tod and I would not be able to celebrate Father’s Day. Thanks to Hillary for the ultimate Father’s Day gift. We increased our family by a hundred or so the day Anna was born, and for that we are so thankful. Much love to you and your Moms on this special day for Dads (and Papas!)
The extended family
On a not so happy note, we have lost contact with Eli’s biological father on Facebook, and for all we have read, that’s a good thing. We are happy to report however, that we are still in contact with his foster dad and Eli loves that connection. We hope to continue to celebrate all the good that has come into our lives and tailor our holidays to celebrate their unique qualities.

Happy Father’s Day to you all, whether biological, accident, or by choice, all Fathers are special today.


  1. Happy Father's Day to both of you, Tom.

  2. ...and a Happy Fathers Day to you guys tooo :)
