The forgotten fathers

As we celebrated the special daddy in our house today, I was hit with a thought. 

We have a special day for Daddy's. We make them breakfast, we give them gifts, we praise them.....

But I believe that we easily forget some of men we most need to honor. 

What about the dads whose children live in heaven? 

What about the dads who are waiting for their children to come home through adoption? 

What about the other half of the infertile couple who is desperately longing to be a daddy? 

We are quick to support the women in these situations. 

But because of their tough exterior, sometimes we gloss over these special daddies. 

We can't forget these daddies. 
We need to reach out and honor them. 
Even if it's just a word of acknowledgement. 

To my hubby today.....

"I am so thankful for you. And I know that's its difficult not to have all of your children here with you for Father's Day. I know you long for the day you will see your first born son again. I know that you long for the day when you have all of your children under one roof instead of across an ocean. 
I love you and I am praying for you."
