Today I want to take time out to talk about the gift of fatherhood. To me fatherhood is a gift that a mother gives to her child. Any one can make a child but not everyone can be a father.
As women we have a natural instinct to love our children however that love also includes considering your child's paternal needs.
I thank God for the wisdom and grace to have chosen this good man to be the father of our Sons.
He is not the richest man in terms of finances but he makes our sons the wealthiest men I know, they have a father that teaches and guides them.
Tony Iro did not know his own father for long, his father died when he was 3 yrs old.
He made a decision to be there for his children.
This is who he has always been.
He did not start doing this today.
In the picture he is feeding the baby, that was in Nigeria in 1995, we had helps in the home yet he just gave his sons a bath and was getting them ready for bed.
Looking through our archives a few days ago, I found these pictures, there were a lot more but I just decided to share a few.
When the boys were younger, Tony took care of any activities outside the house. Gina ford do you remember la petite days? A lot of people thought he did not have a wife because they hardly saw me.
Chidera(Ama), Somto, Ikechi and Kelechi, I have always told you to thank God every day for the father you have.
I pray you will be just like him.
To other fathers you can do more!
To mothers choose wisely!
