I am married. A month shy of 3 years. I have a beautiful, intelligent, sexy, and well-educated wife. Who has been my cheerleader and best friend for life. Yeah. Yet as a fallible man, I had an affair. Don’t judge me until you walk in my shoes.
This write-up is neither about my wife nor is it about my affair. And it is not about the error of my ways. Rather, this story is about the favor that God has bestowed upon me through these two women in my life.
Here we go.
All my life I have prayed to God for 3 sons. Just 3 boys and no girl. My preferences. I have believed that He will answer my prayers. And on several occasions I have shared my convictions about this with my friends and former coworkers, who chided me for my arrogance. I wasn’t arrogant. I was simply expressing my faith in the Scripture that said “the desires of the righteous shall be granted.”
4 months ago, God, through my wife gave me my first son, CKE II, who I announced his birth on this blog. On August 31st, God allowed my desires to continue to come to pass and gave me another son, who is as beautiful, as healthy, and as hearty as his older brother. A beautiful outcome of the affair that I had. And my heart has been filled with joy ever since.
I asked for 3, I have already gotten 2. I have no doubt that the next and last one will be a boy as well.
Now, by having a love child, I have hurt my wife, who rightfully believed that she has the exclusive right of bearing my seeds. I wronged her. I have apologized to her for the error of my ways. And as both a woman with a golden heart and a woman who fights daily not only for me but also for our family, she has forgiven the error of my ways, she has accepted my son which she did not bare as her’s, she has vowed to love him the same way she love CKE II, and we are working together for us to emerge from this phase of our life, stronger and better for each other.
What more can a man in my position ask for?
In my last post on this blog, I talked about the importance of fatherhood, the need for every father to be involved in the life of their children, and the need for every father to treat equally, every child of theirs, whether they are born in wedlock or out of wedlock. For it is the right thing to do. And it removes the sense of abandonment from the child and increases their chances of good success in life.
So it is my resolve to announce my second son to the world the same way I announced his older brother, CKE II, when he was born, on this blog. And I thank my wife again for her support in my so doing.
To you my ardent readers and followers, may I introduce to you the latest blogger in town and my second son, Gabriel Benaiah Ezeocha who was born on August 31, 2015.
Gabriel weighed 7’ 10” at the time of his birth. He was and has been a very healthy child. I have no doubt God will keep him so. As y’all can see from the first picture, he is already united with his brother and they will grow up together under my tutelage to become the best they both can be, for the United States of America in particular, and for their generation in general. I hope that someday they will take turns to serve as Presidents and Commander-In-Chiefs of the Armed Forces of the United States of America. That is my hope for my boys and every day of my life I will continue to work hard to ensure that the hope I have for my sons materializes.
Welcome to the world, baby Gabriel…
QUOTE FROM MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE: “It would be easy to let the enemy win. To just focus on the pain, the rage and be just as ugly as any average person would. No, I choose to be God like. To rise above. To love endlessly and have faith in my Father the Highest Lord there is. God will take care and preserve my family.”
