I think that you are doing the right thing by taking on an important responsibility of parenthood. The child has no father and you are filling that role. You will be a great father. Make sure you spend time with the child, ask questions but not too many, and be available for advice. These are the kinds of things that matter. Laugh and play, try to understand the new fashions, play the games, and teach, teach, teach. Teach the child to fish, skate, crafts, iron, laundry, cook, fix autos, whatever you know just pass it on.
Thanks for giving me a chance to help!
