The fact that your daughter has turned out so well is because of YOU! From what I can tell, you are an excellent example of parenting. Oh how I wish I'd had a father like you.

Sorry I'm late but Congratulations on both the 18th birthday & the College entrance.
Your first piece with the shoes is what caught my eye - those shoes look wonderful & I love your realism there. The verse brought a pricking of tears (I know it was for your daughter) & your photo is something very special.
A very touching post.
