Fatherhood: The journey of a lifetime

Fatherhood is a journey that requires courage, guidance, and a plan. It is a journey that shapes us into the men we are meant to be. When we become fathers, we become role models for our children and it is necessary to set an example. Whether we are biological fathers or not, we all have a Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally and is always with us.

God, the heavenly Father, is the perfect example of fatherhood. He is the source of love, guidance, and assurance. Regardless of our race, origin, color, or country, God loves us equally and deeply. He is always there for us, even when we move away from him, and he never leaves us. Accepting our Heavenly Father is the first step to becoming who we were created to be.

The role of the father is very important in the development of children. It is necessary to provide guidance, direction, and a sense of security. A father should have a plan and vision for his life and his family. He should be prepared for his journey. Preparation is important and what we have learned in the past should help us make a plan for the future. Our vision and mission should be clear and we should fulfill them. The journey may not be easy, but it is worth it.

To be a part of giving birth when it is no longer just you, but a part of you coming into this world is indescribable. Every birth is different and for us, our firstborn son with Down syndrome came into the world peacefully and smoothly. It's a journey filled with joy, love, and challenges, but no matter the difficulties, the love and joy that a baby brings is worth it. Watching my wife's waves (contractions) was a breakthrough. Being supportive of her, whether at home or in the hospital, is very important. Breathing together and being in sync with the waves while massaging her was incredible support. The moment of birth with all its emotions was so moving and energizing that it left every cell of my body moving. The union of the physical with the spiritual creates an indescribable feeling of bliss and fulfillment within you. When our baby son, Steven, arrived, I became a father forever. I will never be able to thank God, my wife, and my son enough for starting fatherhood in me. Now it's not just my wife and me, it's us. Fatherhood is a continuous journey of commitment and participation from conception to birth to life itself, day in and day out. It will challenge each of us, but it will also help us become better versions of ourselves.

In conclusion, I want to reiterate that fatherhood is a journey that requires courage, guidance, and a plan. It requires us to embrace our Heavenly Father and be the best version of ourselves. It requires us to be open to God's love and guidance. The birth of a child begins a journey of fatherhood that will change our lives, and we need to develop and enhance it. It is a journey worth taking.

I encourage every man to be present at the birth of his child and if he cannot be a biological father, to consider adopting one of the many children who need it. Live each day as Heavenly Father has taught us and be a role model to others as a father to your children, family, friends, and even co-workers or people in your neighborhood.
