We love our Daddy Reed. He has been with us for about 7 months. We have 6 1/2 months left of our 15 month deployment. He has really helped our daughter, she has him watching over her all night. She hugs and kisses him every night. She has tea with him, we do family pictures with him. He is a part of our family too! Thank You. The Myers

We received out FlatDaddy 3 days ago. My daughter didn't know it was coming and when she opened it her face lit up brighter than I've seen since her dad's been deployed. Now we have it framed and will have to show it off before hanging it up. Thank you so much, it's wonderful.

Thank you so much to the family who donated to us. My son LOVES his flat daddy . He carries him around the whole house and well just about anywhere we go. He tells his flat daddy stories and about his day. Flat daddy even goes in the car with us . I am so thankful for programs like this to help children out when a parent isn't home. It has helped so much seeing a full size daddy here as we miss our sailor ..thank you again

I gave birth to our first child not too long after my husband deployed. I have been showing my son our Flat Daddy EVERY morning since we have had it... now at 5 months he reaches for it and smiles sooo big when he sees it. Thank you guys, even though we can't have daddy here, the flat daddy is the next best thing. And I'm hoping that it will help my son to know his daddy's face, so when he sees him after being gone for a year and a half he will know who he is.
