Mat,

Happy (first) Father's Day!

The moment I saw you with Ama-Watts on the day she was born, I knew that you were going to be a great dad. I could tell how much you loved her and cared for her already, just like I did. That night, you rocked her to sleep while I slept, and I was so thankful to have you there with me-- the beginning of one of the greatest journeys we will ever take together: parenthood. I'm so glad it's you with me. I'm so thankful the Lord gave me you before He gave me our daughter.

Ama-Watts and I cannot tell you how much we both love and appreciate you. Thank you for always leading our family with patience, kindness and humility. Thank you for always putting us before yourself, and thank you for always being there for both of us.

Thank you for loving us with enthusiasm and for setting a godly example for us. Thank you for being honest and forgiving. Thank you for being a hard worker; we are blessed by your hard work every single day. You are God's gift to us!

You are a natural father, and you are, without a doubt, the best father in the world. I (Whitney) could not have asked for a better father for my little girl (and for our future children). The Lord has been immensely good to me, and I do not deserve you. Thank you for who you are.

We both hope you have a very happy first Father's Day! May you know this day, and every single day from here to eternity, how much your girls love you. You are completely wonderful.

We love you so much,

Whitty and Amalou
