A child changes a man.
Making him older and younger all at once.
It reminds him of his heritage and legacy
while rediscovering play and his inner child.
It’a a unique time, to grow in both directions.
A time to be savored, cherished, loved.
A child shifts a man’s perspective
From changing the world to raising a family.
It puts what is truly important into focus
Maybe for the first time…
And every time you see a smile, a look of wonder.
A child completes a man
It makes him whole by
Uniting his life across time.
The boy with the man,
The adventurer with the provider,
The magical with reason.
A child makes him a Dad.
