From my blog on www.parentsociety.com:
I still remember my partner’s tentative steps around my children when
our relationship moved from a brief flirtation to becoming significant

suddenly found himself in relationship, complete with home ownership
and two children. Within a few years, we were joined by a dog. Then
another dog. Welcome to a modern version of the American family.
Since he didn’t want to be “Uncle Dean” or “Dad 2” or “Pops,” the
children went through a long list of names of what to call him, almost
relegating him to being their “gay nanny,” a name said with
tongue-in-cheek. Finally, he has simply come to be called “Dean.” And
they love him with the affection shown to a parent, and he loves them as
if they were his own children.
