My eldest step-daughter is 19 today. She finished high school a trimester early, has been taking college courses for a year, has held at least one job for years now, and is on her own in an apartment with her significant other.
Kiaj has grown up so much since I met her as a 16 year old almost 3 years ago. She's matured more than three years in that time and I'm proud of her. We don't see her much since we don't live close, so I wish I could know her better. She is really pretty cool.
I will say, my husband has some pretty terrific daughters! He probably can't even put into words how proud he is of them.
