Grey, I am so blessed to see you grow up every day. It’s such a joy to discover your antics, your true personality, and things that make you unique.
Every day, I work hard to celebrate your uniqueness, and not mold you to become like another JPaul.

My dream is to see you rise and be the man God designed you to be. As your father, it is my great joy to lead you to Jesus.

I love you so much, Gregory Peter. You are more than what I prayed for. You are more than what dreamed for. You are more than what you think you are.
When God planted you in your mother’s womb, He already planted a Holy Purpose for your life, and nothing can stop that.
I pray that as you grow up, you’ll be the most loving man you can be. Always look to St Joseph and Jesus about what manhood should really be.
Again, I love you so much. And I love your mom too. I love her every day.
Watch me love your mom as you grow up so that you’ll learn how to treat a
