Love you, daddy. Miss you so much. Steph. 
Steph scribbled those words on a sky lantern before sending it off to her father in heaven who had passed away from cancer. Halfway across the country, Steph's lantern landed in Matt Mikalatos's yard. As a father of three daughters, Matt could not let Steph's note go unanswered, so he posted an open letter to her on his blog. Matt never could have expected the viral response to his letter that led him on a journey to find Steph - and to bring healing to thousands of others in desperate need of the loving words of a father. 

Way i am waiting.... 

This book is supposed to be filled with pateneral wisdom and reflections on the relationship between a father and a child. And i personally have a pretty good relationship with my dad, but he never even knew his and his stepdad was not necessary the best dad. And so i know both sides, the pretty good and the horrible relationship between children and their fathers.

I am also always interested to read different points of view on the matter. 

And the overall story premise just sounds fantastic and interesting and like something -that if it is done right- could be fantastic and heartbreakingly beautiful. 

I want to see if Mikalatos does it right and if he really manages do write a book that can prove how the bond between a parent and a child is everlasting -as other reviewers have promised. 

And i who doesn't love a good positive spin on losing a very important person in your life?
