Karen has never allowed me to feel sorry for myself, nor has she ever let me settle for “good enough.” Her steady presence in my life has been the anchor of security I needed to peel away the pain of my past and become a better person. Marrying well was the first step to my healing.
Learning to become a good father, was another. Although unaware of it at the time, my children played an essential role in my transformation. I swore they’d never experience what I did growing up, and they haven’t. They were my motivation to grow and change. There’s little doubt in my mind, they’ve done more for me than I’ve done for them. Thank you guys.
