While taking the trip to their new home with his mom, 7 years old Jake asked where his dad was. She was unable to speak the truth. Trying to brighten up, she said “My son, your Dad is in a far away place”. Looking puzzled, Jake replied “But he was crying when we left our home”. There was a complete silence. It was then she heard the voice of her husband from behind, “Hey Honey, I made it!”. Her eyes were filled with tears, she hugged him and asked, “Why?” and he replied, “Because I had to”.
