My daughter's first birthday is in a couple of weeks and I have to say that I'm taken aback at my reaction to her first year of life. Fatherhood is amazing.
Everyone thought that we were having a boy because of how my wife was carrying (we waited to find out), except for me. Something inside my soul told me that we were having a girl, and low and behold, almost a year ago she arrived and turned me and my wife into a family.
I could not love my daughter more than I do and know that there is nothing that I wouldn't do for her. Nothing in my life so far has shifted my priorities more than her birth and her life.
Everyday when I go to work I never have to ask myself why. My reasons for doing what I do are crystal clear.
