Stephanie writes "My husband is truly a wonderful man. I have 2Volunteer Involvement:
children from a previous marriage and their father has nothing to do
with them. I met my husband when my babies were 1 and 9, they are now 3 and 11. My babies call him daddy. If it was not for him they would have
no sense of what a father was. My husband took on this responsibility at
23 years of age. He works 60 hours a week and has allowed me to quit
work and stay at home full time and go back to school and still finds
time to coach our 11 year old at every sport she plays.. (Literally all
year round) He is such a kind,gentle soul. I have always heard the
saying 'It takes more of a man to raise someone elses kids than it does
you own" well I am here to tell you that I have the man that every
single mother in the world dreams about. I recently had a miscarriage
and I was an emotional wreck and Justin told me that we were selfish for
trying because we already had 2 perfect children. He honestly loves me
and these babies more than himself and I never even knew that could
