My girl is all grown up

It makes me so happy as a husband to announce that my little bride is currently finishing her last day of school today. I am so proud of my Kaiti that I don't know how to put it into words. She has so much potential and has blown me away with how smart she is. I tried to help her with her homework, but honestly, it was a bit much for me. It just made sense to her. The amount of abbreviations you have to learn is in the thousands and she just memorized them like it was nothing. We're talking about a girl who suffered a serious brain injury not too long ago and has had trouble remembering anything, even things that happened recently. A girl who would tell you the same story several times because she doesn't remember telling you already. A girl who would tell me she wanted to see a movie...that we already saw in the theater. But it's a girl who is so motivated to do good for herself and dedicated to proving everyone wrong. She is a role model to me. I remember in the past years how sad she was all the time. She just felt like she wasn't going to be able to reach her full potential. She had to drop out of school after her car accident and was at a stalemate in her life. Staying home everyday taking care of the children and not doing much else with her life to make HER happy. I believed in my girl when I mustered up the money to send her off to get her GED (which she aced), I believed in my girl when she enrolled in school the very next day, and I believe in my girl today, as she will graduate with a whopping 3.9 GPA. She's the first in her family to graduate from college. I AM SO VERY HAPPY AND PROUD OF YOU, KAITLIN. YOU ARE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE AND YOU CONTINUE TO AMAZE ME. CONGRATULATIONS BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE YOU.
