I never had a great, or even good relationship with my father until I myself became a mother. Between the ages of 13-16 I was placed into over 25 different foster homes most of which were single mother environments. It wasn't until I was living with a good hearted Christian family that I realised the importance of a Dad within the family and since then I had found Jesus and my heavenly Father. Earlier this year I got married, something I never thought would have been possible back then, but God blessed me with a wonderful husband and fabulous Dad for my kids. My Father walked me down the isle on our wedding day and making him proud that day was so special. As part of our wedding my partner also dedicated himself and promised my son (from a previous relationship) that he would always have a Dad to encourage him to be the best man God created him to be. I remember feeling so joyful underneath the pack of nerves. Now I have my heavenly father, my real father, a wonderful father-in-law and my kids have as awesome Dad too. And for that I am forever thankful!
