My dad is the best dad I could ask for.
He’s a loving husband to my mom (always making her laugh), he’s been to every one of my soccer games since I was five (I’m 17 now), and he provides for our family as a construction foreman.
This morning when I was searching through my dad’s toolbox for a pliers, I found a dirty folded up paper at the bottom.
It was an old journal entry in my dad’s handwriting dated exactly one month before the day I was born.
«I am eighteen years old, an alcoholic who is failing out of college, a past cutter, and a child abuse victim with a criminal record of auto theft.
And next month, ‘teen father’ will be added to the list.
But I swear I will make things right for my little girl. I will be the dad I never had.»
And I don’t know how he did it, but he did it.
