"Having children gave me PURPOSE. It gave me a constant motivation. It made me more aware as a human being. Conscious of my actions, my words, my walk my humanity, my humility, my walk toward acceptance and the unconditional. My kids grew me up. They made me a man. They fuel my existence."

"My kids my friends my heart my life. My motivation is through the roof. Ove never been so purposed. To trailblazer a path of greatness is the goal. To write a blueprint they can follow. If you embrace the responsibility of raising your child you will find that you are really allowing them to raise you. They teach u this magical unparalleled love that is inexplicable."

I hope you smile all your life My ex wife, my children's mother, my sister, my friend, my family... I just love you girl."
