I think the day Nate was born was the best day of Scott's life (our wedding day was way too hot to be in the running).  Scott was so, so excited to become a dad.  He wanted kids sooner and in greater quantities than I would ever even consider.  When Nate came along, he was the happiest new father I've ever seen. 
I think Scott's greatest strength as a human being is the way he embraces his role as a father.  I mean, he's really, really good at it.  And being Nate's father is extremely hard work in every way something can be hard work.  Nate's condition taxes you physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and every other -ally out there.  But Scott's love for and sense of duty to Nate is way bigger than any of that. 




Can you see Scott, Nate, and his vent sitting down way out there?  Scott was bone-tired by the time they got to that point.  And there was still a very long way to go to get to the water.  And Nate is SO heavy these days.  And his vent is heavy.  And it was hot.  And the sand was hard to walk in.  But Nate wanted to dip his feet in, so Scott took him to the water.  That's the kind of dad Scott is. 
I don't really know what else to say except that I really believe that Scott is the perfect dad for Nate, and I hope that someday Nate will be able to catch even a tiny glimpse of how lucky he is.
Happy Father's Day, Daddy!


  1. What a wonderful tribute. Happy Father's Day!

  2. I love this! Nate is a really lucky little guy to have BOTH of the perfect parents for him.

  3. This made me cry. As hard as his life is, Nate is a lucky little guy to have you and Scott for his parents. Who would have though life would be like this, or that such a hard life could also be so blessed?

  5. The Royal Oak was a groundbreaking model both for the replica AUDEMARS PIGUET watches brand and the watch industry as whole. The replica watches UK model’s strikingly unconventional design, with a hexagonal bezel, exposed screws, and integrated bracelet, turned the world of luxury watch design upside down. Although its unique, bold, and unusual design was polarizing at first, the Royal Oak was ultimately a hit. In fact, the Royal Oak has become Audemars Piguet’s flagship model.

Replica bagsThe region was a poor one - serfdom had only been abolished less than 40 years previously, so Louis left to seek his fortune when he was a teenager, arriving in the French capital aged 16. This was the Paris of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, with nearly one million inhabitants. As the composer Chopin said in a letter to a friend at the time, "Here you find the greatest luxury and the greatest filth, the greatest virtue and the greatest vice."replica Louis Vuiton bags
