    My father is a selfless and strong man. After my mom divorced him, he decided he wasn't going to date women until my sister and I graduated high school and moved out of the house. He sacrificed much of his life for us.

    When the day finally came for him to be remarried, my sister and I were excited for him. He was moving on with his life, he has had found love.

    So, in this photo, I captured my sister crying tears of joy, as my grandmother takes in the scene in the background . . .

    4 months later, I was in therapy and my sister was seeking therapy. My dad's wife turned out to be quite a selfish and unsympathetic person and as a result, we hardly ever see our dad anymore and don't have much of a relationship.

    The tears in this photo have transformed. They are of loss and sadness. My sister is deeply wounded by the loss of our father to a woman who doesn't understand how badly her husband's kids need him.

    My father is a selfless and strong man - I have hope and faith that he will break from his chains and come back to us.
