Matthew Cerrato, Broomfield, CO
nominated by Christine Bondi
When our own sweet baby was born critically ill, 6 weeks early with a very large and dangerous tumor, he rose to the challenge of taking care of me as I recovered from a traumatic birth, his three stepchildren and his own newborn son as we went through a gruelling 3 month NICU stay and dozens of surgeries and procedures.
He continues to blow me away as a man, lover, father, step father, and best friend. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to have a man in my life who would love all of our very complex children like his own.
