Although I had the best intentions not to cry, there was no fighting the tears back when it came time to dance with Daddy Hawk. Working with my DOC/DJ Liz, we created a special surprise recording to the beginning of our song. While I had already made the recording and knew what I said, nothing could have prepared me for hearing it for the first time and seeing my father’s reaction.
“Nothing Can Change This Love” by Sam Cooke with Hawk intro:
My special message received plenty of applause and tears from our guests. Luckily the remainder of the dance was mostly tear free.
It could not have been a more perfect moment for Daddy Hawk and me.
Did you/do you think you will get emotional during the parent dances?
