Happy Fathers Day to Peter, the Mafias "Poppy", Alex's dad. Happy Fathers Day Papa J. Thanks for always being there when we need you, whether it providing advice, assistance, food or laughs; we appreciate you so very much. Our house wouldn't have become our home without you and Mama J so thank you for everything you do. You're a wonderful man and an even better father (and poppy!). I also want to wish Happy Fathers Day to Alex. Although you're not a "real" father in most peoples eyes, I believe the dogs see you as just that. I see the way you love our dogs and know that if/when there is eventually a two legged pack member you're going to be great. You're more kind, compassionate and patient than I thought you could be - especially with the fosters. I love watching them learn that not all men are bad BECAUSE OF YOU.
I couldn't be prouder to join your family, knowing that this is the kind of people I'll be surrounded by.
Finally, Happy Fathers Day to my own father who hasn't been here for a long time now. I hope you are proud of the young woman I've become and that whatever section of the stars you returned to is your version of heaven. I love you daddy.
