    Always

    I love my dad. He's not my biological father. He's from Macedonia. He raised me since I was one and always made sure I was well taken care of. Always. He wasn't perfect, and my mother wasn't either. They might have been happy, if it weren't for my mothers drug addictions. Shortly...

    I feel like I'm basically an extension of my

    Dad's personality. We are both free spirits and like to show off. From our dislike of wearing clothes to the bands we like, we're both pretty crazy.

    I don't know where to start.

    As a kid my dad was the greatest person in the world, plain and simple. My sisters and I got everything we wanted and more, he let us do anything, and he made us more than happy. Well for me atleast. My dad didn't show affection or anything though, it was just a chill...

    Lately, I have been hugging my dad a lot.

    I don't know why. I love him, yeah I do... But I have never been that hm expressive towards people even if it's my family... But I love papa's strong arms! When he hugs me back, he tightens me in his arms and he kisses my head... I love him! :)

    When I was 7 I remember watching this movie

    called goody, about a pig that somehow became president. As pigs were my favourite animal I went up to my dad and asked him if I could get that movie for my 8th birthday. My birthday came around and the movie wasn't in sight. That was ok to me because I know my dad would've...

    When the home health care nurse came out to the

    I Love My Dad...

    When my mom passed away I hardly even two years old, so I don't remember anything about her. At the same time my dad had just graduated with his law degree from Harvard. It has only been me and my dad for years, and I respect him greatly. He had to juggle being a young lawyer...

    My dad sometimes freaks me out.

    Because every time I try to be funny my dad finds it "dangerous" and then starts telling stories about what had happened to some people. And today I was laughing while I was drinking some water, then I got some water in my lungs and started to choke, but when it's alright and I...

    My Daddy

    He didn't really want a baby. But my mother finally won him over to the idea after five years of marriage. When I was born, he called his sister in Texas, and was crying unintelligibly. She thought something had happened to Mama. Did something happen to Cindy? (No) Oh no...the...

    because I have a Father that raised me with so much love. He cares deeply for me, and my sisters. I am very proud of him. He is very special to me and my oldest sister. At my sisters age of 7, and me being 2 years old, my father adopted us. He really wanted my sister at first...

    but my Dad is really such a great guy and I love him so much. My Mom and Dad had me when they were really young. Dad was 22 and Mom was 17. Yeah I know. They were too young for kids I think and it definitely showed in my Mom who eventually split and now they are divorced. My...

    Proud To Call Him My Dad.

    Every one has different definitions and opinions of what a Dad should be or do. A few months ago I was in a really tough place, weed addiction, alcohol, self harm and meaningless sex, on a daily basis. Didn't even know who I was or what I was doing. I met this man on here, didn...

    who talks smoothly around you from the start because if someone likes you they should be a little nervous and honestly i think that's some of the best advice anyone has ever gave me.

    Dad was the new boy in the neighborhood and he would always watch out the window when mom would pass by. He was too shy to say Hi so he would just watch her. Mom was going to the best private school in town and I'm pretty sure she thought she was all that, like she does right now...
