Yet he has grown up with tears, laughter, struggles, passions, pain and Joy with much change, and in spite of it all he has persevered. He has managed to discover and is actively further discovering who he is, and as  a Proud Father I guess you would think I would be bragging about Him, Well you got it, If Fathers dont pride in their children what can they pride in? We are to form and educate our children, and I have seen in philip a willing heart and an industrious young man. I also have tasted the loneliness the fears and and uncertainties! There are thing a Parent can never withhold His children, we can live in the fear of life’s harshness and tragedy … I choose to hope and trust in who Philip is becoming … I want to blog about him as he is dear to me and my heart longs to see him be the best philip he can be!Philip Christoph, a unique combination with a unique signature of the creator.A proud Father (Joz)
