Dad and Daughter Duo Ryan and Anna Moore of Rochester Hills

This dad can't always be by his daughter's side but when he is, he makes sure their time together is extra special.

Ryan Moore and his daughter Anna, age 4, spend a lot of time apart. The Rochester Hills dad has been gone for military training, pilot training and even time serving in Afghanistan.

But that doesn’t stop him from being super hands-on with Anna when he’s home, Jamie Moore says of her husband.

“When he is home, he more than makes up for any time away by doing absolutely everything with her,” mom says, “from taking her to preschool, watching her at dance class, even taking her flying.”

Dad even sings songs to Anna until she falls asleep. Aww!

“He is a super daddy,” Jamie says.

Here, Metro Parent asked Ryan to answer a few questions about the special bond he shares with his little girl – just in time for Father’s Day. Read on for more.
