My oldest daughter Abby had her seventeenth birthday. Unfortunately we didn’t see her on her birthday birthday because she lives in a group home.
It is not the way we expected things to be. My anticipation of what her teenage years is not the same as reality. That does not mean life is bad.
Abby is a happy girl who enjoys life. She knows what she likes and makes the best of her experience.
I was able to go up the day after birthday and enjoy some time with her and Logan. No matter what, I’m proud of her and glad that she’s my daughter.
