“I had no idea what to expect,” Hasan continued, “and I was pretty sure I was not going to like it. But [he] went up there talking about me as his son, how he loved me, and how he wanted more than anything else for me to be happy. He talked about how he saw that Abbott made me happy, and that's what mattered. Right there for the first time, he gave us his blessing. He said the things I'd been waiting to hear for 12 years right there at my wedding. It blew me away. Abbott told me to go to him, and I did. We embraced, all three of us, and I cried in my dad's arms like I was a child. I would never have expected, and could never forget, this moment.” (Photo © Karen Pike/kpikephoto.com) less
