Today is my daughter’s birthday. Victoria is six years old. I cannot fathom how life would be without her. In many ways, she has transformed my entire life. Through her, I have learned to love more fully and to enjoy the moments I get to spend with the people I really care about. In my job, she has taught me more about relating to children and with other parents that I ever could have learned in any classroom. The joy she has brought me permeates every aspect of my life.
Today, I dedicate this blog to Victoria. My most precious baby, finest teacher, and my most devoted supporter.
Happy birthday Victoria. Daddy loves you.
