Our everyday hero.



My husband...the super dad. I don't think that there are enough words in the English language to convey what an amazing father Kelly is. In a time of broken families and absent fathers- Kelly is a light for my children that so many others are not as fortunate to have.

My career is based on trauma. I see families literally living the "worst day of their life" more often then I truly care to think about. It is a piece of sadness in my heart that I think I might carry with me for always. And as crazy as it sounds, in all the trauma, end of life care, funerals and hopelessness...I see light. It is probably my most favorite part of my job. It is a rare moment in a room of despair when for maybe just a second that there is this overwhelming feeling of peace. you are not alone in your sadness. As an outsider, I am invited to share in a beautiful intimacy of family that I have never known before. It is like having dinner with everyday superheros.

And that is what my husband is. He is an everyday superhero. He is not the man that you will see on the billboard or under the spotlight. He will not search for the credit or bask in his good deeds. Because that is not who he is.

He is the man that you want to stand beside you on the "worst day of your life". He is so incredible that you also want him there on the "best day of your life" and every other day in between. Because my husband is a - baby snuggler, super tucker inner, runnin' through the sprinkler, tickle you till you cry, singer of seasame songs, maker of meatballs, bath time bather, night time feeder, dynamic diaper changer kind of man. And we are SO happy that he is ours... we wouldn't trade him for anything in the world!

We love you!!!
