TO MY WI FE AND SON All of My Heart I’m looking forward to this Valentine’s Day because, while my wife and I have been together for almost nine years, this will be the first Valentine’s we celebrate as a married couple. We aren’t planning on doing anything too extravagant. That’s just not our style. This year, Valentine’s Day means celebrating our love for each other and our love as a growing family. Samantha and I met at a club, like many people do. We talked, we danced, we exchanged numbers, and a week or two later, we hung out again. The more time we spent together, the more I realized what an amazing woman she was. Over time, Samantha and I fell more and more in love with each other. We were both committed to making the relationship work, no matter the circumstances. Commitment is a rare thing to find these days, and Samantha is one of the most committed people I know. When Samantha puts her mind to something, she doesn’t let anyone stop her. When there’s work to be done, she’ll always give it her all, even when she’s tired. Once she’s committed herself to some task or project, you can bet it’s going to get done. Some might call this stubbornness, but I call it dedication. Samantha doesn’t let the world push her around, and she inspires me to be just as dedicated. We were together for almost seven years when we had our son, Jerome Adams III. Samantha and I were really excited when he came along, and I was ready for a son. As a man, you always want to be able to take care of your responsibilities, and having a family is one of the biggest responsibilities in this life. Your wife looks to you for support, and your son looks to you as an example. After working hard for years on our relationship and on myself, I felt like I had reached a point where I could manage taking care of a family. Two years after our son was born, Samantha and I were married, on Aug. 12, 2017. It was a busy day — a busy week, really! I spent the day before my wedding attending the rehearsal and running around trying to get everything we

needed for the reception. Samantha and I wanted everyone who came to the wedding to really enjoy it. The wedding was certainly fun, albeit a little hectic. For example, when my son was brought down the aisle, he immediately ran back up the aisle looking for his mom! I can’t say I blamed him. I couldn’t wait to see her, either. I’ll never forget when my soon-to-be wife walked down the aisle. She looked absolutely beautiful, and her expression was part excitement, part nervousness. I thought I would feel nervous, too, but I didn’t. I was ready to take this leap. When you want to do something and you’re prepared to do it, there’s no reason to be nervous. It’s a great thing to find someone who truly supports you. I’m blessed to have Samantha in my life and proud to be raising a son with her. It’s not always easy, and sometimes you find yourself asking if you can really do it. Fortunately, when you have a partner next to you who wants to lend you their strength and help you succeed, you can accomplish anything in life.
