    Shelbey Eadens smiled as she and her date moved in small, swaying circles at the school dance Thursday night. When Shelbey turned her broad grin up toward his, she tightened her arm around his waist for just a moment, then happily snuggled her red mane back on his chest and closed her eyes.

    “She’s daddy’s little girl,” said Dave Eadens after sharing the first slow song of the night with his 10-year-old daughter.
