"It is truly a dream come true," said Henson who celebrated with his wife Sarah, family and friends at the home of father-in-law Bishop T.D. Jakes. "I've dreamed of this moment from the first day that I started playing football and I can't believe that this day is finally here ? it is truly a dream come true."
Bishop T.D. Jakes was moved not so much by the fact that his son-in-law was drafted, but by the amount of work it took for him to get there. "Robert has been through so much and worked so hard, I am so proud of him, not just for being a football player, but for being a man."
Henson, no stranger to adversity and struggles during his lifetime, became emotional when he recalled conversations he shared with his now deceased brother Nicholas Sterling about his chances of playing football at the highest level. "My brother and I would spend hours sitting on our porch talking about me being drafted and playing in the NFL and now this day is here and I am so excited."
Henson married Bishop Jakes' youngest daughter Sarah in June of 2008 in a lavish ceremony attended by Tyler Perry, Dr. Phil, Tom Joyner, Emmitt Smith and Deion Sanders...Again congratulation Robert Henson.
