4: Sgt. Dallas Abrams | Daddies who are soldiers have to make a lot of sacrifices that other dads don't. | Dad wasn't here to see my first smile, or rock me to sleep when I was sick.
5: That's because Dad is doing something very important, he is serving our country.
6: Dad was here during some very special times, like when I was born. Did you know that Dad was the first person I met? | August 20, 2010

8: He had to leave soon after that, but I knew it was okay because he loved me and was doing what he had to do.

10: OUR FAMILY
11: Luckily he got to come home and hang out with me for awhile. We took lots of naps, sang songs, and cuddled. | Dad gave me some very special priesthood blessings. I'm so grateful to have a daddy who talks to God.
13: Then Dad had to leave again. Everyone was really sad, but I knew it would be okay, and I love my Dad! I knew Heavenly Father would keep him safe because I was just in heaven with Him! | Dad placed me in Mom's arms when he said goodbye because he knew she would take care of me while he was away.
16: Other dads are home to see their babies sit up, crawl, and walk, but that's okay because I know my dad loves me and is watching me do those things from far away. Being a soldier means sometimes you're not home for Christmas and birthdays, but that's because he is protecting us all.
