Ryan Schubert, PicPads 2010 MVP Father

He's in Afghanistan and missing his new baby and wife like crazy. I know this MVP Dad title will list his spirits a lot!

Ryan was nominated by his mother Maggie Garcia-Schubert of Miami, FL. Along with a photo of the smiling dad with one-month old Catharine, nick-named “Catie”, Ryan’s proud mother submitted the following description:

Ryan Schubert, Army Ranger deployed to Afghanistan just after becoming a dad for the first time not only participated in the birth, but arranged for someone to always be with Mommy, kept house, changed diapers and watched the baby while Mommy rested- all while readying his platoon to deploy.

When PicPads contacted Maggie to let her know that her son had been voted MVP, she exclaimed “THAT IS WONDERFUL!! I'm going to send my son Ryan an email right away. As you know, he's in Afghanistan and missing his new baby and wife like crazy. I know this MVP Dad title will list his spirits a lot! Thanks so much!”

In honor of all the great fathers, PicPads founder Laura Eiman created this special award as a way to “show appreciation for the big and the little things dads do everyday.” Nominations were open to the public by simply submitting a photo along with a description of why this particular dad was an MVP. Five finalists were chosen by an expert panel; judging was based on the photo and the reason as to why this particular father inspired the nomination. The winner was then decided by public vote on picpads.com. Photos and descriptions of the winning MVP father and the other four finalists can be found on http://picpads.com/photocontest.php.
