Husband, Father And Grandfather How Quick This Came About!

I married my beautiful wife in 2009 along with 3 children, our oldest daughter Jai is 21 and our youngest daughter Jad is 14, our son Jax 16 years of age. This was a ready made family for me at age 54 and I had never been married before.

Not to say this was not life changing for me never had been married and now having the responsibility of 3 kids and a wife. My wife and I met in Irvine California and the kids were in Cebu Philippines. I petitioned my wife and also petitioned the two children Jax and Jad later. My wife Leilah later went back home to Cebu Philippines to bring the kids to America when all the paper work was completed.

This was the greatest day of my life after 9 months my wife returned with Jad and Jax with all their papers to come to America. I remember the day they came off the plane at LAX. I had to wait for them to clear customs. They were given a hassle from the customs supervisor and was threatened to not come in to the county. I remember that both my wife and kids were crying and were so afraid they were going to be sent back.

After 2.5 hours waiting they were released to come in to the county. I was never more embarrassed to say I was an American then that day. It still was the happiest day of my life second to my wedding. The kids were very excited to be here and I had their room ready for them when they arrived home.

They wanted to go swimming the first thing in our pool but it was down for repairs. They were very disappointed because they have been waiting for this moment having a pool so close to them to swim anytime they wanted.

I was unsure that the kids would be comfortable around me and I them. That was not a problem Jad the youngest girl and I hit it off very well. I loved them both before we ever met because we talked all the time over the phone for over a year. Jax we talked as much but close as close a son can be to a Dad. Things have had their up's and down's but these are all part of my adventures. I love every minute of my life and my family. I wonder where I would be today without them in my life.

These are short stories of Dangerous Undertaking of a Stay at Home Dad.
