A proud dad seeing his adopted daughter graduate with a B.S. Degree!

Dad Has No Regrets After Adopting

This is a picture of myself, Lisa Arquitt, and my father Mike Arquitt. Dad chose to adopt me when I was just 4 years old. Although I was blessed to have my biological mother throughout my entire life, I would have had an empty hole in my heart had it not been for my father doing everything he did for me throughout my life. If it meant working two or three jobs at a time so I could dress in style, or spending hours in the backyard catching for me so that I could become the successful softball pitcher I was in high school, or even still being the first to call to wish me/sing Happy Birthday on my voicemail at 6AM(which was just last week, I recently turned 23!), he definitely has been one of my biggest influences. He's a workaholic, a sports fanatic, but most of all a loving father that would do anything for his children. He's played a major role in my successful life that I've developed.
