Aww so excited for your up coming wedding.
Stories like that make me realize just how unacceptable
my ex husband's refusal to give up drinking was.
Heroin addiction is one of the hardest to over come, with a high rate of relapse in users. but yet your soon to be husband put that behind him because he realized what is really important in his life.
My now two year old daughter is my ex husband's and therefore not Drew's. but he still accepts her as his own. Spends hours playing with her and teaching her stuff on flashcards. When she first started calling him daddy, he'd correct her. but since my ex hardly comes around he has stopped bothering. She usually calls him by his name, but when she slips up he says nothing now.
He was badly abused and neglected as a child, and was told by a doctor that his low sperm count made it unlikely he'd ever get anyone pregnant. He was tested after his ex and him were together 5 years and their repeated TTC yealded no results. So my daughter's love for him warms his icy heart he says. and he's over the moon that that doctor was clearly mistaken.
Is your son's biological father out of the picture? One of those rebound situations best forgotten? It's so awesome your soon to be hubby is raising him as his own. Just like my step dad has done with my 10 year old sister since she was 9 months old.
