14 Nov

Yep!!! I now have a daughter who is technically an adult. Krissy turned 18 today. WOW.

As if it were yesterday, I remember the phone call from Diana telling me that I was going to be a dad. I went into shock. Not that I was not happy, but that was a radical thing for me. We had been married at that point for almost three years, and now responsibility would REALLY kick in. Again, WOW.

She was born on a Wednesday evening. We were youth workers at our chuch, and half of the youth department and our families were out in the waiting room. Krissy was a C-section baby but I was allowed into the OR. I will never forget any of it.

It seems like yesterday. Since that day so much has happened in life. Ups. Downs. The past few months, as we prepare for her to go to college, have been bittersweet. Krissy has become a friend to me. Our times on the softball field pitching have been awesome. The best time a dad could spend with his daughter. She plans to go to med school after undergraduate, so there will be no softball in college. Our days on the field will come to an end in a few months.

Yeah, November 14, 1990 seems like yesterday. And now she is 18.
