    I’m a dad with a 10 year boy and adopted my wife’s son whose now 17 and will be 18 next month. We are guardians of an 18 and 21 year old and they still live with us. As they came bad upbringings and they said all they want is a family to love them and a safe place to call home.
    Since our boys have grown up and found interest in girls my heart is torn. They are my life. I feel like a piece of my heart leaves as they go off each night to spend time with their girlfriends and future lives. I spend a lot of time with my boys and I am always there for them. My wife is always there for them to get the love that I can’t give. We try to hug them and tell them everyday how special they are to us.
    Why do I feel several things? I feel proud because they are all good boys and very respectful and somewhat responsible. But I feel like that I am going to be lost without them being there for me to talk to and laugh with…why do I feel this way. I don’t recall my dad or mom ever being this way. I had a very dysfunctional family growing up, is that why? Family is so special to me and always will be.
    I don’t know if I am asking anything or just using this as a mode to express my feelings.
    Thank you either way and I am looking forward to listening to your podcasts and watching my boys grow up into fine young men with wonderful families to let grandpa and grandma spoil.
    Keep on keeping on. I look forward to chatting (rambling) more. Feel free to share this on your blog if you want, maybe there is other mom’s out there that feels like this dad.
