I am the father of a step-daughter, now aged 21 who I consider my real daughter. Three years ago, she became pregnant by a boy her age who I really didn't approve of. All I could think of was how I had raised my children, and didn't want to go through this again. My wife and I had both been previously married and had our own children, and I knew my daughter and grandchild would have to live with us due to financial circumstances.
As her pregnancy progressed, I started going along to her Doctors appointments with my daughter and wife. The change in me happened when we saw her first ultrasound. A little boy! My grandson, about to be born.
Now, two years later, I can't see my life without him. Every time I hear "Paw-Paw" or get a hug my heart melts. I never had a son of my own, but realize God answered my prayers His way, with the best gift I can think of, a beautiful little boy who brightens my family's world every day.
