Not everyone gets to choose their own kids, but back in 1999 when I met her mother I was able to do just that. It was Stephanie that gave me the name of DIT “Daddy in Training" slowly but surely the in training was dropped and I was just Daddy. I got to raise Stephanie [minus the dirty diapers] and got to see her transition into the wonderful woman that she has become. We have experienced it all, me being her art teacher [and she ignoring me in class], taking her to the ER for broken bones [arms and leg; she had to quit Cheerleading] you name it we did it. In 2010 she gave me another title when she became an AKA and I became her forever “Frat Daddy". Fast forward in time and along comes Tony and once again here is Stephanie giving me yet another title, this time Papa and Father-In Law! It has been amazing watching Steph and Tony growing into adults and as a couple that love each other and their family. I feel secure knowing Tony will be there to provide and protect my daughter and for that reason he’s my son! Congrats Steph and Tony!!!
I'm more than my title will ever be.
