"Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad."
I read this quote years ago, but never did I fully understand it's meaning until Steve. He is a Dad in every sense of the word. Biology be damned, Sierra and Jared are as much his children as Shawn, Malia and Kassia are. He's made a point of making them feel that way. The card the kids got him today said, "Big Shoes, Big Heart, Big Hero" on the front. That is so true in so very many ways. I find myself more and more in love with him everyday. I watch him help Sierra navigate the social waters of high school, play ball with the boys, dolls with the girls...he is just amazing and everything every child deserves in a Dad. I'm so glad he's ours. :)
