As a father, and someone who raised his kids I officially Reddit adopt you, and as my newly found Reddit son I will tell you what I tell mine:
"The thing I want more than anything Is for you to look into the mirror and smile back at how amazing you have become because of who you are not what you don't have"
You are an amazing son, no man can define that only you growing up to show your's what that truly means!
Can you adopt me too plz
Absolutely, as much love as I have that can go around welcome home!
Maybe u/Immortalmecha needs some siblings too!
Thank you :)
I’ll try to take all of the things that happen to me and turn it into some form of wisdom. I know one day i’ll look back on this and view it totally differently, and I’ll probably think all the things i’ve said or did were stupid, but that’s okay.
I wish you the best in continuing to raise your children, and maybe one day you can be an awesome grampa :)
You won't look back and see them as being stupid, you will look back and be reminded of how strong you are and that you made it through all that crap.
You feel like you missed something in life.....funny thing is you now have the power to give something to one of your children you never had when that happens
You really are doing amazing man, and if you ever need to talk or chat just reach out seriously, sometimes we just need to be reminded of who we are don't forget about dear old dad cause you are are "grown-up" now!
Thats the wisest words ive ever read coming from a Redditor Dad.
Man thank you for that it means so much more to so many than you know
You are very welcome, glad it reached you too guess maybe my kids do tell the truth when they say to never change ;)
Love you man, thank you for saying that
Adopt me too? 😬
thats beautiful, thank you
This was probably one of the most beautiful things I've read on here I'm tearing up right now
Thank you for being part of my life!
You are a good soul.
I have a great dad, lucky in love in every way. But this made me cry, man. Thank you. You have a beautiful heart.
