    I am so appreciative

    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...

    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...

    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

    Thank You Daddy

    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...

    with my Dad. His health is failing very fast. Heart, kidney and cancer. We just buried my sister. Trying to get things from him...personal information has not always been easy. He's more of a talk about the weather kind of a guy. He loves to hear about how my 130 pound puppy...

    All my dad cares about is money.

    I thought he changed so I moved back in with him, and now he's pushing and pushing for me to get a job. There hasn't been 1 day where it hasn't been brought up... I love my dad, but there's so much more to life than money...

    There was a time when I was around 10

    that I was somewhat afraid of him. But being 21 I've been showing him all if what I can do and that I stand my ground to everything. We have been the closest we have ever been and I can't love him enough for it. He's a mixture of Hank Hill, Red Forman, and Martha Stewart.

    I can't admit this in front of my family.

    He is an alcoholic without realizing it and there are times I can't stand him, but that doesn't mean I hate him. He has let me down countless times and sometimes made me feel like he doesn't care, so why do I still love him. No matter how many chances I give him, it makes no...

    He's crazy. lol. He's crazy strict.

    He's one of those perfect people who never make mistakes, he always makes the right choices. He's powerful in a sense that he doesn't need to remind his employees he's the boss. When I was a kid, the only way my mom could control me was beating me up... my dad only once lost his...

    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...
