During a divorce, parents will always fear that their children will end up feeling as if they are being left behind or less than loved by the parents who have to leave.

It doesn't have to be that way, however!


Facebook user Dylan Lenox is planning to marry Sarah, a divorcée with a beautiful daughter named Willow. United by love of the young girl, Dylan and David, Willow's biological father, became close friends.

Dylan penned a touching Facebook post on Saturday, January 19, writing about how lucky the entire family is to have two loving dads.


In his post, Dylan wrote:

"Our daughter Willow. You may never know how your love has changed us all. The guy to the left is myself (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, of 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!"

He continued:

"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 mommas/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 apart 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!"

Dylan left readers with a final thought, just in case anyone was looking for a loving partner:

":::FYI David is SINGLE::: This Is NOT a photo shoot, Sarah is a photographer though::: This was taken before a daddy daughter dance:::David took her this year:: This was an impromptu photo op. This is real and this is us."

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
