One year ago today I became a father again. I had a son, and the daughter that I had been raising for 6 years, became mine.

I married Emily's mother in 1998, and Emily had always been a daughter to me, but February 13, 2002 I legally adopted her as my real daughter.

Last night my daughter wrote me something wonderful.

A Daddy was Born Mom said the time was near... and you would soon be mine. Then on February 13 2000 a daddy was born. To sit up.. at night and wait for me to come home safely from a date. Crawl... out of bed to drive me to schoool Cruise... beside me as I learn to drive Walk... me down the isle Run... to see your first grandchild born. But first my daddy was born.

That should be enough to make anyone cry.
