Happy Father's Day!



Mike surprised me today with this Father's Day video to the song, "Arms Wide Open" by Creed. This song has a very special meaning. This is Mike and Matthew's song, we listened to this song on the ride home from the hospital ~ Matthew's first time home after 6 long months. The pictures towards the end of this video are of us bringing Matthew home (at the 35 second mark) ~ Mike is all "suited up" .. he was beaming all the way home!! I was sitting in the back seat ... like a deer in the headlights, terrified and scared to death!! Not Mike ... he was unafraid and couldn't get him home fast enough.

Matthew is blessed to have such a wonderful daddy. Mike went all my prenatal doctor appointments when I was pregnant (every 3 weeks.) Spent almost the entire 6 months in the hospital with Matthew and I. He has gone to every single doctor appointment (Matthew now has 7 doctors) and the beginning, we averaged 15 a month.

Happy Fathers Day Mike ... I could never have handled all we've been through without you.

Happy Fathers Day to all the other wonderful dads out there!!

I love this film! It got me all teary-eyed. Mike looks so happy, proud, caring and attentive in all the pictures. You guys have been through so much and I am sure I don't even begin to realize exactly what that is. Matthew is lucky to have great parents like you and Mike.

What an inspiration the King family has become to so many people!

Terri, you had a beautiful pregnant belly!!

I had to say something silly to keep from getting completely 'sappy'.

Hope all of you have had a blissful Father's Day.

And I am sure that Mike could not have handled it without you either. The strength of the individual is never enough in a time like this.

Terri, that was beautiful. I have tears streaming down my face right now :)!

It looks like Matthew has a wonderful Daddy who, is so very proud of his little boy :) (that is VERY obvious by the beaming smile in most of those pictures!). Matthew is so lucky to have such great parents ... and I think you are also blessed to have such a super cute, special little guy :).

Is your hubby a police officer?
