I know that I did some things that scared you the last time that I got back, and it should have, she's your daughter and I love her. I love her so much, and I'm working so hard to get better. I want to be worthy of your family. I want to be worthy of her. And, I know that you think we're rushing into this too fast, but I gotta tell ya, you grow up real fast on your own, you grow up fast in the military. I know what I want, and I want us to start our lives together.
