Dillon continually surprises us. This past weekend, he passed the swim test at a local pool here in Hawaii. He promptly walked up to the high dive and jumped off. So much about this whole scenario perfectly sums up our son. He is resilient. He is fearless. He is strong. We finalized his adoption this past March and we all took a big leap into our new lives together as a forever family.
Dodie? (Doh-Dee) Right when we brought Dillon (our oldest son) we quickly realized we needed to think of what he would call us! He quickly named my husband Daddy and upon hearing his 2 year old friend call one of his 2 dads "Doda", Dillon decided on Dodie. After years of constantly lobbying for "Papa", I have grown to love and adore my name Dodie Here is a blog about my journey as Dillon and Jerry's Dodie!
My son Dillon was in foster care for 1,377 Days. We finalized our adoption of this firecracker boy in March of 2015 a few months before his 6th birthday. We are now in the process of adopting Dillon's younger brother "Jerry" from foster care! This blog will help paint a picture of two gay men raising two boys in this every changing world.
