In the spirit of constructive comment, I think that the above statement is what your opening lines are concealing, rather than revealing. The present opening is a lot of throat-clearing about souls and fathers, and it's not something most readers will like or understand. (Witness our science and religion discourse, in another thread.)
Whatever souls do, they don't "pick" the bodies they inhabit. If that were true, we'd be universally slim, coordinated, zit-free, and with 20-20 vision. You didn't "pick" the form your daughter inhabits, and at 15, she is losing her childhood as you descend into mid-life. It's a rough passage, for all concerned. If your opening expressed this situation, from both perspectives, you'd be winning all kinds of readers. And instead of telling this stuff, show it.
Example: As Katy reached the nth minute of a phone dialogue, her fourth this morning, I shot her a look that she returned with a nasty sneer. My little girl, approaching fifteen. In me she doubtless saw the ruins of her Daddy, now grown bald and disapproving.
