Happy Father’s Day, Dad!  We’ll always be your little girls.  We love you!

I am grateful that i can make choices everyday that can bring my ten year old daughter and I closer.  I am grateful that I remember what my teen and tween years were like and that I am consciously raising my daughter differently.

I’m grateful for my baby sister Stasa, that she was born, and I got to see her.

I’m grateful for our school’s positive response to our request for a 504 plan!
Allyson MacDonald

I’m very thankful that my daughter’s hard work as a writer is beginning to pay off, and her efforts are being recognized and appreciated by professional writers.

Happy Father’s Day to all those dads out there—especially to my husband. I’m so glad you are a morning person when I am not, otherwise the kids would never eat breakfast before 10 a.m.
Janine Kovac
