When it came time to start a family, Michael Cottone and his wife Brigit decided to pursue adoption. Though it wasn’t the path the couple originally expected to take, their connection grew the second their son Vin entered their lives.
Through every tantrum and middle-of-the-night diaper change, Brigit watched her husband’s unwavering devotion to their family. In these moments, she saw herself falling even more in love with Michael.
This Father’s Day, Brigit wanted to give him an extra-special present to say thank you for everything he does for their family.
In an open letter, she expressed her love and appreciation for Michael, not only for his hard work and support, but also for how much he has taught her about what it truly means to be a parent.
“Our path to becoming parents wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t the one that we’d originally expected, but then adoption brought Vin into our lives, and you embraced fatherhood wholeheartedly,” she wrote. “I love the example that you set for him in everything that you do.”
