A Letter to My Daughter's Father

A Letter to My Daughter’s Father

There are times when all I want to do is to rip your head off. Boy, you drive me crazy sometimes. We both know it was not all sunshine and rainbows. But, we are allowed to disagree on things. And, to be completely honest – I have so much to thank you for.

Thank you for loving our daughter so very much.

From the moment I saw you holding Nikka that very first time, I knew you were going to be an amazing father to her. I watched as you kissed her the very first time, and felt not a single doubt that you’d do anything to make her happy. I know whenever you’re around, she is in the best of hands – second only to my own. Nikka will never doubt the love you have for her; you will always be her rock and foundation. Her protector. She may be a mini-me but at the same time, she will forever and always be daddy’s little girl.

Thank you for being the awesome father that you are.

Sure, she may have to go days missing you. But she will never have to wonder whether or not her daddy is missing her too because you are a constant presence in her life.

I have come to realize that no matter what we go through, I will always be grateful to you. Because of you, I have the greatest blessing anyone could ever ask for. Now, I don’t only see this world through my eyes but also, through our daughter’s young, innocent, naive eyes. Eyes that do not know pain, anger and bitterness. Eyes that see this world from a completely different perspective.

Because of you, I get to watch the true wonders of this life – watching our little girl grow in new ways, every single day. My life has so much more meaning, so much more purpose now. Because of you, I grew up to be a woman with strength, ambition, and determination.

Thank you for being the intelligent, fun-loving, witty person that you are.

I know neither of us planned to become parents when we did. But I am constantly reminded of how lucky I am that life took us on this particular detour. Sure, I could go and have a child with any other person, but, that child will not be the same exact one as the one we have now. We made this beautiful, unique and awesome little person together.
Regardless of what happens in the future, I am able to look at this greatest blessing in the eyes and know that she is not only a part of me. But a part of you, too.

You have grown to be the most amazing father I could ever have hoped for Nikka to have. I am so proud of you. Our daughter is so lucky she gets to call you daddy, and I intend to remind her that every steps of the way.

Thank you for my most precious gift. Because of you, I am a mother.
But most importantly; thank you for being you.
