For every girl, a father — is a man who can do everything. And It’s always calm and cozy by his side. A father is a man that you can trust implicitly. But a real father is not always your blood relative. First of all, a father is a man, who has brought and raised you up. And usually it’s the same person for most children, but not for this girl.
A family sometimes has nothing to do with blood ties. But it’s rather a place where you are being loved sincerely, simply and unconditionally. And these little girls know it much better than others.
Little Zhozelin brought this harsh military tattooed man to tears, when she had asked him to adopt her
Carisa Smith, the girl’s mother, explains that there is a special bond between her husband and her young daughter. “They are not related by blood, but they are really like daughter and father. “
“My husband is doing everything possible to take care of her, as if she is a real daughter. When she needs him – he’s always there. ”
“When he fell in love with me, he also fell in love with my 9-month-old daughter, — says Carisa. — He took her as his real daughter, and soon there will be three years, since she became ‘daddy’s girl’.”
Shane seriously decided to adopt her, and soon they will become father and daughter officially.
When Carissa and Shane met for the first time, they were both single parents, and they both had little daughters. So they decided to marry, and soon another wonderful baby was born.
Our world revolves around our daughters. We never choose between them and love all three of them equally strong. We never say such words as “stepfather”, “stepmother” or “step-daughter”. All three of them are our dear children, and Shane is their dad.
When the third daughter was born, the couple realized that Zhozelin was the only one, whose name was different. And Shane had decided to adopt her officially, though he had always treated her like his own child anyway.
Our baby likes to pronounce her new name: “Zhozelin Smith.” And when she does this, her eyes are shining with happiness.
“Shane is the best father, and it’s a blessing — to have such a husband,” — says Carissa.
Few people talk about how very difficult it is to adopt and raise a child, when it’s not yours. So Shane can be a role model not only for all the stepfathers, but for some real parents as well.
