    I became a single parent father when she was less than a year old. Along the way we faced all the problems of a single Dad bringing up baby, toddler, little girl, teenage rebel, young woman. We came through it all, she got her own place and we decided I didn't need to parent...

    As I get prepared to do my work at home,

    my phone rings and it's my stepdaughter. (Which I simply call her my daughter). She's 25 years old and in her 3rd year in medical school. With her being a full time student and a part time nurse, I assumed she called to ask me for money. (Which I never have a problem with). To...

    As I write these words from my heart it brings

    tears to my eyes. Every time I think about my beautiful daughter I can't help, but smile. As most of you know; I adopted my daughter less than a year ago. She was born the day after my birthday and her mother at the time gave her up the moment she pushed her out of her womb. I...

    I have two daughters.

    The oldest is actually my step daughter 15, who I have raised since before her second birthday. The second is my 12 year old, computer whiz. Man, this dad thing is not easy. I think if there were a user manual for being the dad of a teen girl, it would easily be over 10,000...

    My daughter moved out of my home with weekend.

    It was bittersweet, as expected. There's so many things I worry about. (I'm a worrier, that's normal for me, but still!) But, she's smart, she's loving, she's bold, she's funny, she's wonderful and I know she'll blossom. I look at her and I'm amazed she came from me. I'm so...

    She's too much like me.

    A few days without Kid is pretty tough

    but one evening of zaniness can make up for so much. The two of us running around like goons armed with a camera or phone is a crazy kinda thing sometimes.

    She just did it again.

    So much animation as she describes the play she was in at school- at one point she said "...I was so nervous I was biting my nails to buggery...". What twelve year old talks that way? She comes up with the most unique things, that ones truly at the top of the list though.

    She is now 7 months old

    and I swear she is the coolest person I know. She is our first child. Before her, I wasn't a "kid" person. I am now a sucker for them. I don't want to wish her life away but I can't wait until she gets older so we can take her on vacation with us.
