My dear daughter, not only are you another year older which is special in itself, but today you enter a new and exciting chapter of your life. I hope that it is full of the most wonderful things and the greatest of opportunities for you.
Wishing you the sweetest 18th birthday from dad. May you have the best day.
I have loved, cared, and guided you under my wing for 18 heart-touching and memorable years, but today it’s time to let you spread your own wings and fly on your own. May there be no limit to the possibilities of success and happiness in your life, daughter.
