After I had gotten divorced, I was kinda selfish. I didn't want to date a guy that had young kids, as mine were almost grown. I didn't want to raise someone else's kids. The man I met and fell maddly in love with has a son only a few weeks younger than mine. He has cognitive disorders. He has developed some more sever disorders. He can be a handful. I LOVE DEARLY! He in my heart is loved just like my own kids.
