아빠… My dad… Words cannot explain how much I love you.. Thank you for raising me to be the strong, independent and hardworking woman that I am today. I wouldn't be here today without you.. I fucked up a lot as I was growing up, made bad choices, gave up on my career.. Yet my dad never doubted me.. Not even for a second.. He opened my eyes to dreams I've never imagined were even possible.. I am here today because of my family. Thank you.. I love you dad and miss you… #happybirthday #생일축하해 #daddysnumberonegirl #daddysgirl #familyiseverything #unconditionallove #hardestworkingdadever #imgonnamakeyouproud #stopgettingolderplease ??? #iwastheugliestbabyever #butnottohim #iwishmydadhadinstagram
