Hey Dude

Without getting overly emotional, I just want to take a moment to thank all of the men out there stepping up and tucking kids who aren’t (biologically) theirs into bed.

A father is an important role, especially in the life of a little boy. My son and I were doing perfectly fine in life just the two of us for a while, I even spoke to my friends proudly declaring that at age 20 I was glad to be alone. Concluding that I would stay that way forever, just me and my little boy. My 21st birthday, a good friend (who’m I accidentally dialed a week before) came out with me to celebrate my being able to legally drink. For days, then weeks, then months … we were inseparable and I saw myself and my son becoming very attached to him.

Fast forward and I couldn’t have ever expected that someone could love me and my son so much. That someone could step up where someone else stepped out and take the time and put in the effort to make sure we’re both happy and well taken care of. I never thought I would have this completed family dynamic that is now my every day life. I know mine isn’t the only situation like this. I know that not every man hears how amazing he is. I know that sometimes even I take for granted the love we are handed day in and day out.

So thanks dude.
(Dude is the name my son originally gave to this man).

  1. I am 22 and about to be a single mom myself. Some people have tried to encourage me to make it work with my sons biological dad so that he can have a father figure in his life. Unfortunately that’s probably not going to happen but these same people are discouraging me from allowing other potential fathers from coming into my life. Any idiot can make a baby but it takes a really great guy to make a good dad. I’m glad you found someone like that its encouraging 🙂

    1. Definitely don’t let anyone push you into a relationship you don’t want, I was talked into actually marrying my son’s biological dad which was a huge mistake. We weren’t in love and we divorced soon after. There’s too much drama in letting other people make choices for you. I’m sure you’ll find someone amazing for you and your son!! It sounds like you have a great head on your shoulders. 🙂
