Dylan and I started dating ten days before Nyomi was born and two weeks before his fifteenth birthday. I was in over my head and he was the life preserve we dearly needed. He's loved her for her entire life, long before he met her. It didn't take long for me to realize that this was the man that would be there for her through everything. He had no obligation, he's not her paternal father, but he is, has been and always will be her dad. I wish I could show you the way she lights up when he walks into the room, or how many hours he's spent with her in his arms. An amazing man, an amazing father, an amazing rock for myself to this day. He has never let her down, an angel in disguise.
