The parents pass their genes to their children, but the children are not meant to actualize the dreams of their parents.
There are many parents forcing their children to complete their unfinished dreams. This is totally just a selfish mentality.
Children have their own body and thoughts. As the parents, we have to provide the ideal home and the best environment to our children.
The children would find out their own path and develop their own new world in the future.

I started this painting of my daughter two months before she was born and finished it one and a half month after her birth.
I experienced the feelings of father-to-be and the father when I was painting. Though there are a lot of changes in my life and I have increased responsibility and burden now,
my only hope is my daughter Hillary would grow up healthily and happily.
