32 year old Roderick Fuller knows exactly who turned his life around.
It was his 3 year old daughter Ariah.
The single dad says, “I was not responsible before. I did a 360 degree turnaround. I had no choice.”
During the day, he works at a grocery store warehouse. And the rest of the time, he takes care of his daughter (with help from his own mother).
3 year old Ariah does spend time with her mom from time to time. But it’s this guy who is always there.
And he feels blessed.
“I love it. When she wasn’t talking or walking, it was hard. Now she’s more independent. I have to watch over her but when’s she’s sick, she can tell me what’s wrong.”
This is just the kind of dad that Luvs (yes, that diaper company) wants to honor this father’s day. Luvs gave me $200 to spend on Roderick as part of the company’s #ShareTheLuv campaign. He chose a gift certificate to a restaurant and a massage (to help his bad back from lifting all those boxes at the warehouse).
He says, he would never buy these things on his own because life is hard financially. “My money goes towards daycare and bills.”
He is currently living in Fort Lauderdale, FL with his parents but Habitat for Humanity is helping build a house for him and his daughter in nearby Pompano Beach. They hope to move in this summer.
Of course, there is one thing about fatherhood he hasn’t quite mastered. “I can’t do her hair. My sister does that.” But he seems to have everything else covered. And you kind of know he’s going to get that hair thing down too.
So what’s his favorite part of parenthood?
“The way she looks up to me and asks for me when I’m at work. Watching her learn. She’s very smart.”
He is blessed indeed.
Luvs also generously gave me diapers do donate to Covenant House, a safe place for at risk, homeless teens (and their babies) here in Fort Lauderdale.
There is enough to worry about as a parent, the diapering part should easy. That’s why Luvs is a company that believes in affordable, dependable diapers like their Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™. These diapers are softer and more absorbent than before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee.
