I would like to wish every father reading this, a very Happy Father’s Day!  Image

This is my beloved father who is very ill right now.  My thoughts and my heart are with him. It was the first time I had ever spoken to him that he didn’t know who I was.  This ripped right through my already-aching heart and I have been in tears for the entire day….but Father’s Day isn’t about me.  It is about all the Dads out there that love and raise their biological and step and foster children.  It is about the Fathers that truly care and are there emotionally, spiritually and physically, at every given opportunity, to do what they can for their children.  It is, I’m told, one of the most difficult, but rewarding jobs in the world.

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy.  I love you with my whole heart.




AND…..Happy Father’s Day to my sweet husband, Dr. John Freed ,whose hard work, loving heart and kind disposition have guided my children toward success, have softened their hearts and have helped make them see beyond themselves and to look toward helping others, making conscientious contributions to this planet and to just being generally good people.  I love you, John.  Thank you for everything.  You are a blessing in their lives and in my own.   I love you.  I love you.  I love you.





AND…to our dear son-in-law, Nate, who is always there in the ways that count, when his daughter needs him.  She has so many of your fine qualities, Nate, and for this, I am grateful.  You are very much loved in this family, and appreciated more than words can say.  Love, Stacy
