    for a long time. This story is a tribute to my one and only daughter. For simplicity I will refer to my daughter as "M". After 5 children and several years of marriage my wife and I divorced. Our youngest, M, thought that I did not love her and the divorce was her fault. So...

    My baby girl getting

    so big! I can't believe she's 1. Everyone thinks she look like a doll but for me, who gave birth and has nourished her since then, she's growing everyday. Her favorite word: dada! Such a spoiled daddy's girl.

    My Beautiful Martika....

     This is a bit contoversial as I have a loving daughter, she's the apple of my eye, of the age of 25, but she has followed me into my career; I'm a prostitute.   She's a real caring girl. She is very slight, just over 5ft tall but very helpful and feels that...

    Sometimes she's the only reason I get out of bed

    and do it all again day after day. My home life isn't great, but she's my world. My partner used to be my world, now she's merely a housemate. My daughter though is amazing, laughs and giggles a lot, tests my patience but relies on me. She never sees me sad, only ever really...

    Well actually I have two of them.

    The elder is a lot like me, but is horribly shy and self-conscious and about to become a teenager. The younger is still a toddler and talks incessantly. Because of the elders shyness, I don't try and discourage this ones taking.
