In the early part of my childhood, it was just my mother and me. Then my mom met a man. At five years old, I could only imagine him being someone that would come in and mess up the good thing mommy and me had going.
To my pleasant surprise, "He" became “Daddy,” and he filled a void in my life I didn’t know I'd had. Daddy never treated me any differently, and some of our characteristics now are so similar that you’d swear we were biologically related.
