Apollo Beach, Florida middle school educator and male model Thedartis M. Demps Jr. is today's Morning Wood.

He was recommended by a loyal reader who wanted others to see the good qualities in this man of God.

Follow Thedartis on Instagram.com @thedartisdempsjr. And don't forget to tell him you saw him on Sandrarose.com!

Thedartis is a proud single dad to a 7-year-old adopted son, Emmanuel Demps. In a glowing tribute to his son on Instagram, he wrote: "I remember when I first got into foster care people were so negative. They said 'I wouldn't take anybody else's kids in', 'I don't see how you can do it???', 'Them children are the worst kid ever with the most problems?'. I am happy to say my boy you have been the example of what God can do. All of the trauma you have experienced, you have [shaken] all of that off and become a new child. I am proud to say I am the father of a son who made the honor roll all year!!"
