Eleven years ago today I became Shawn Steil's daughter. It was an act full of choice and symbolism and the ties that make a family. And while it seemed symbolic at the time (and still does) it was also just... the right thing for us? It was more than a symbol, it was making official a relationship that we were living. The stars aligned for the Maloney children.
Some of my favorite photos of my handsome dad, taken by Rebecca and Studio Noveau photography:
Happy anniversary, Dad. I'm lucky to be your daughter.
