    What it means to be a father


    This is my husband Jason with our son Ethan. Our son has a rare heart defect called hypoplastic right heart syndrome. He was born 2 months early and was hospitalized for 2 months in Atlanta, Ga at Egleston Children's Hospital until he could have his first heart surgery on March 28, 2013. My husband and I stayed with Ethan the whole time, 200 miles away from home. Jason was mine and Ethan's rock throughout it all. We held Ethan everyday for hours. Jason was always so calm with him and so tender and loving. We still have 2 more surgeries to go and Ethan is doing so wonderfully. Jason is the BEST father and it would be so nice for him to get some recognition. Please air this video.
