Mark Gordon on Principles & Values

 

 


Widower with two daughters; married single mom with two sons

Families come in all sizes and configurations with special challenges and considerations. Mine started out slowly. My wife and I struggled for years with infertility but with faith and perseverance we were eventually blessed with two daughters; Bea and Anne. Then in the rush of an early morning, [my wife] Sally died; the victim of a traffic accident. Suddenly, I was a single parent with a daughter one month away from entering kindergarten and another not yet ready for preschool. Later, I met Jennie Muir, herself a single parent, and together with her two sons, Aaron and Spencer, we put together the strong family we have today.

Our family includes three sets of grandparents, all of whom are critically important to our children. We believe all of the members of our family deserve to feel safe, loved, and secure. As a nation, and as people, we have an obligation to make sure our families stay strong, secure, and safe.
