Daddy


I knew my husband would be a great Father, but how deep his love for Malachi is completely blows me away.

Something I admire about Peter is that he did not want to just settle and let me have my way when I wanted to start our family. He was honest with me that he just wasn't ready yet, and that he wanted to be "all in" when we had kids. So we waited, and he is definitely "all in"!

From the moment we started the adoption process, he has loved Malachi. Months before we even knew who our son would be, he loved him. All summer, as we waited for court dates and for travel approval, he was ready and antsy to get our boy home.

I honestly had no idea what to expect when we came home with Malachi. Peter had no experience with caring for a baby, but he jumped right in! He is a pro at feeding and changing diapers and rocking Mal to sleep. He has no problem letting me sleep in and caring for Malachi in the morning (when he isn't working). He can't wait to get Malachi in his arms after a long workday!

His patience, love and devotion for his son are truly special! Malachi loves his daddy so much! They definitely have a special Father-Son thing going on :) We have always had a good marriage but I had no idea that I could fall so much further in love with my husband watching him as a Father.
