“Our daughter Willow. You may never know how your love has changed us all. The guy to the left is me (Daddy, Daddy Dylan or Bonus Dad). In the middle is of course our Princess Willow, and the guy to the right is David (Daddy, Daddy David or biological Dad).
No, we are not a same sex couple, but we do share a daughter.
David is Sarah’s ex-husband, and I am the fiancé. We have molded ourselves into one unique family, if only for the sake of our children to know the power of love. Not only did I gain a daughter, I gained a brother and a best friend. Thank you, Sarah, for letting this all happen!
When we care more about our children (on both sides of the party) than the way society has taught us to be towards ex’s/baby momma’s/daddy’s, then walls will fall, life will be free of hatred and remorse, and our children will conquer the foolish ‘norms’ that media has shoved in our faces.
He stays at our home when he visits, because family is always welcome. He is not an outsider, he is and will always be a part of my life for the simple fact that we share the same daughter! Of course, not a single moment would be like this without Sarah (mommy) and her kind and generous heart! Willow Grace, you are loved by so many people in this world, and your Daddies love you!
FYI. David is SINGLE.
These photos were taken before a daddy-daughter dance. David, her bio dad, took her this year. This was an impromptu photo opp. This is real, and this is us.”
