Many people want to be mom's and dad's, and to those that are well we know how when our kids are away from us how it feels as part of us are gone as well. Well I felt that way and thought after my 1 st child that would go away so my wife and I had 4 more still never went away. A few months back I was talking to my best childhood friend, Her and I always had a way of coming back together and picking up like we never left each other.

Well after talking for some time we came to a point in our talks about her son Dakota and after we was talking about when she got Prego with him and everything she sent me a picture... Boy that got me I then asked her the time line again. YEP there was a chance. So I asked if we could do a DNA test and we did. Well fast-forward to now and looks as if I had a little boy.

Now before the test came back I got to bring him home to meet everyone and let me tell you EVERYONE said no test needed .. I for one would agree, after getting to know him it is like the lost piece of the puzzle has been found my heart is now full and happy. When he talks and he looks at me I see well ME... I am new to this feeling and I can't change the past about something I never even knew about... But I can be there from now on till I die...

There is so much that we can learn from each other and I know deep in my heart he is my boy. And I will do what ever it takes to make sure he has everything he needs to make that happen, It has been hard trying to get my other 5 kids understand why I spend so much time with there new brother and I am not leaving them out. But I feel as if I owe it to him to have our one day every other week to get to know each other.
