Kirk Franklin is an excited and emotional dad.

After learning that his 17-year-old daughter, Kennedy Elizabeth Franklin, was accepted into her college of

choice, the proud papa turned into a blubbering mess.

His “baby girl” is on her way to Baylor University in Waco, Texas, a private Christian university, ranked one of

the best national colleges by U.S. News & World Report.

Dad isn’t the only ecstatic one.

“I am officially a Baylor Bear” tweeted Kennedy, also calling Baylor her “dream school,” as congratulations

poured in from friends.

But Franklin isn’t ready to let go—something he made very clear in a February blog post aptly titled “The Fear of

Letting Go,” about searching out universities for his daughter.

“I see the passion in her eyes. The desire to fly and explore a new world. What I see in her eyes is night and day

from what I see in mine. In my eyes, time is standing still,” he wrote.  “I want her to stay the little girl. I don’t want

her to grow up… and no longer need me, or love me.”
