Each week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this week by David Lintvedt - a project manager for a medical services firm in Pennsylvania. He was born in the Bronx, New York, then was adopted by a college professor and his wife who raised him in East Orange, New Jersey. He has a bachelor’s degree in English from Upsala College and a master of divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary of Philadelphia. He lives with his daughter, Hannah, along with two dogs and three cats in East Greenville, Pennsylvania. As a boy, Lintvedt dreamed of all the exotic adventures he wanted to have in his life. But as an adult, he discovered that real adventure came not from risky work or travel to foreign hot spots, but in being a single parent to his young daughter.
