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 done, Dylan and David!

Thanks for setting an example for fathers everywhere.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.

Who doesn't love a good joke?

And one needn't be a professional comedian to always have a joke in their back pocket to make people laugh.

Particularly as there are certain types of jokes which are almost always guaranteed to elicit at least a tiny chuckle.

They could be knock-knock jokes, "little johnny" jokes, and of course the "yo mamma" jokes.

Though always teetering on the boundaries of good taste, the possibilities of jokingly insulting the mother of a friend, or foe, are endless, and more often than not, hilarious.

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sobbed in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.
