You may have not been my birth dad, but you were my daddy. You taught me from the age of 5 until the day you left what a daddy is. You always loved me no matter if I was good or bad. You protected me, when I was scared that someone was going to take me away. You would tell me how much you miss me and loved me. You taught me to work on cars. You even taught me to dress like a girl. I am sure if they look up the word daddy in the dictionary, they will find your picture. I love you daddy! I will always be your daughter with a different last name.
