Day 13-A picture with dad/father figure

When I think of the relationship between Courtney and her dad I can’t help but think of the poem, “Welcome to Holland” by Emily Perl Kingsley

Joe struggled the most at the beginning with truly accepting that Courtney wasn’t meeting milestones like typical toddlers. In his eyes his little girl was doing everything she needed to do. His little girl was perfect. He had this vision of what his children would be like and anything different from that he wasn’t ready for. As the poem describes, he was imagining a trip to Italy but instead we were headed to Holland.

Oh has he found Holland to be just as beautiful as Italy if not more beautiful. Just look at the twinkle in his eyes as his little girl embraces him.
