I'm a Dad
I met Mrs Twinklefuckingtoes 10 years ago as a twenty something with my whole life infront of me. Aware that she already had a child from a previous relationship aged 5, I was reluctant to become his stand in dad and eventually end up in one of those "your not my real dad" situations that obviously goes with the territory as the years progress.

Anyway 10 years on and he has never said that I'm not his real dad in spite or otherwise. What he has done though, is develop exactly the same sense of humour as me, talks the way I talk, respects people the way I taught him to repect people, respects and protects his mum, is always polite and accepting of other people.

Every year I get a farther days card and not because he doesn't know who his sperm donor is or because I tried to model myself as his father because probably the opposite is true. It truely is because he see's me as his dad. This makes me feel incredibly special, so I say to those of you out there, if you avoid an amazing woman for the price of some family baggage you are missing out on something pretty special.

Nice one
Bang on and well done that man. I'm in the same kind of situation and had the same fears. Luckily for me it's turned out as well as it has for you. Step kids are awesome.
