A Salute to My Military Father, by
Morgan Silvis age 8. My dad is special because when he is home he
coaches my softball teams, volunteers at my school, and spends as much
time with me as he can. He has to leave to go on deployment with the
Navy but he calls and writes a lot so I can talk to him. This picture
was taken of him and me when he was getting ready to leave. I got to
watch him get on the plane and he signed " I Love You" a bunch of times.
He reads to me on videos and always takes me to Build-A-Bear before
he leaves to record a message in the bear to me. I cant wait until
December when he gets home. He is the best daddy ever.
"A Salute to my Military Father" This
picture was taken just a few months ago the night when husband left for
his 3rd deployment. My 3 year old daughter did not want to let go. I am
blown away each day at how strong my beautiful baby girl has been.
Every night she prays to God to keep her daddy safe and thanks God for
giving her such a special daddy. I know she misses him dearly but
realizes even at such a young age how important what her daddy is doing
and how sometimes she has to share him. I never thought I would say
this but its through her I gain strength. I am truly blessed to have
such a wonderful husband and I couldn't have asked for a better father
and role model for my child :)
My husband is the greatest father to
my step son. I couldn't ask for anything more! This photo was taken
moments before he deployed for 8 months. He is telling my son to take
care of me. :) He is an amazing father for many reasons, but before me
he was a single father to his son and provided him with the best dad
any little boy could ask for!
