SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) — One Mahoning Valley family is celebrating a very special Father’s Day together.
The bond between a father and daughter is special and it goes for the Seder family.
Ned Seder and his daughter Nadeen are celebrating their tenth Father’s Day together after they spent four apart.
It’s been ten years since Nadeen Seder was brought back to America by her father Ned.
“I‘m blessed to be here today and I‘d much rather live here than anywhere else,” said Nadeen Seder.
Born in Sharon Pennsylvania, from 2000 until 2004, Nadeen lived in Jordan with her mother’s family. During that time, if Ned wanted to see his daughter — he would have to travel overseas.
“So she told all the time that all I want from you daddy is to bring a bottle of glue and I say what she said, I want to put it here and I want to be stuck to you wherever you go,” said Ned Seder.
Nadeen was four and a half, and that was all it took for Ned to make it his mission to bring her home.
“You don’t need two parents to have a good life. You only need one good one to help you and toguide you through the rough moments. You have ups and downs with your parents but your dad will be always love you ,” said Nadeen.
That’s why Father’s Day is so special for this pair.
“I’m very grateful for this day because I believe that this Father’s Day is like Mother’s Day to me because I haven’t had one growing up and he has basically had to do every single job there is a counselor as a father as a caregiver all alone and I can’t thank him enough for that,” said Nadeen.
“Enjoy your kids when they group they going to look back and they will appreciate you for being in their life,” said Ned.
