Richard Griffin, Indiana man, truck driver, and a really, really #greatdad. Richie and I dated when we were fifteen years old till we were seventeen. He always talked about wanting to be a dad back then, but life took us in different directions. After twenty-three years, we are at the beginning of our forties and raising preschoolers together. My late-in-life miracle is a four-year-old girl named Ruby who is “autastic.” Richie has a five-year-old boy name Brayden whom he adopted at six-months-old. We are wild-schooling our babies, and he is their favorite teacher. He is a my very best friend. I am blown away by him as a father every single day.
