  • What has been the largest challenge you have had in being a father?
    • Escaping a toxic relationship was the most difficult thing I have ever done. The fear of being alone or worse, without my children, was too much to bear. After 18 years of marriage and far too much yelling and fighting around the kids, I finally left to a hotel with all 4 of my children. I called CPS for help. They drug tested their mother and I eventually received full custody.
    • Looking back on your life as a father, what would you change if you could?
    • I began to use opiates as a way to cope with being unhappy. Using Drugs was the worst decision I have ever made.
    • What do you do for fun with your children?
    • Wrestle and play with the younger ones. Play D&D with some of the older ones. Joke We have quite the weekly routine. It involves church, and the park, feeding ducks and then laundry together at the laundromat. And that is just Sunday. On Friday we always buy a used DVD, the kids choice, and we sit together as a family and eat popcorn and watch a movie. Through out the week I try to do a couple of random activities together to keep the kids enthusiastic. ( When the budget permits) All in all. We stay very active and very close. We do everything together as a family. Even the dishes.
