i have been married and divorced. my ex husband (and daughter's biological father) has made no attempt to make any contact or see her since she was 2 months old, and she is now over 2 yrs. The amazing man i am so blessed to be with now i have known for a total of 9yrs, from back in school and all. we had lost touch after graduation until we ran back into each other again after my divorce. he has been in my daughter's life since she was 6 months old, and she adores him so completely, and wholeheartedly knows him as daddy in every sense of the word, and he has grown to accept and love this. I was his first really serious relationship, and the instant family scared him at first, but he has come VERY far since then. we will be married down the line, we have already decided that. and he wishes to adopt "our" daughter then as well. so i see him as simply her dad, not her some day step dad or whatnot. any thoughts?
