I knew from early on that Daniel was made to be a dad! When we were dating, Daniel came to check if I needed help in our church nursery. We had about 7 babies that morning and an 18 month old who was new to our nursery. This small child was crying and having difficulty calming down so I was holding him in my arms while signing other children into our care. I looked at Daniel, gently handed him this small child, and pointed to the rocking chair. Daniel gently held the child in his oversized arms and rocked him until he quieted. Daniel looked down at the child as he smiled at him and eventually nodded off. Daniel rocked the small child the entire time. At the end of service, Daniel gently handed the child to the parents while smiling and gave them a report of how well the child did in the nursery. That day I fell more in love with this man and knew some day he would be the best father ever!
