How many kids do you have? The Lord has blessed me with 1 child, a wonderful 9 year old boy named Declan.
What are your favorite things about being a dad? Aww shucks! Is this a question any parent can easily answer without writing an entire thesis? Being compelled to choose a few, I love seeing my son’s eyes light up when he gives me a hug while we send time together after each school day and watching him grow as child of God.
How has the Lord blessed this season of being a parent? The Lord has blessed this season via many of the Solo Parent Society podcasts and topics, which have been specifically very helpful in my current stage of my solo journey. He has also blessed me by using me as a leader for Solo Parent Society Zoom groups, even though I just consider myself a “regular guy”. All the good that I have accomplished and continue to accomplish is simply because I pray for God to use me and let Him do so for each meeting I lead.
How has Solo Parent Society helped support him as a parent during this season? Solo Parent Society has provided me with what is referred to as a community, but I honestly experience it more as an extended family that knows precisely what I am going through. This is because everyone is either currently going through the same experience(s) or has done so in the past. This extended family provides me a place to express my true feelings and emotions safely, without having those feelings negatively impact my son.
