Warning:
Issues of child abuse in many forms may at times be expressed or indirectly addressed. No stories posted within graphically address such issues but do deal with the recovery or healing process due to such acts. Furthermore, if you are sensitive to these issues or are in any way homophobic and could be offended easily, I would rather you didn't read any further.

Foreword & Dedications

This story is a work of fiction with the sole purpose of portraying in an amplified sense the bitter sweet pains of being a mentor, when the day comes to step away and let that very person whom you directed so much love and attention to, spread their wings and fly on their own. It is based loosely on a relationship I had, to a friend who still to this day calls me "Uncle" and makes me more proud than I ever thought possible. His daily presence is certainly missed, which at times does in fact hurt. Just knowing that my being a strong fixture in his life at a time when he chose me to look up to and learn from, makes it easier to deal with, but no less missed.

A special thanks go out to my family and friends for their support and help while writing this story. Without you all, I would really have no need or desire to write it at all. Even better, many of those who have become my family over the years (and they know who they are) are also the ones I have taken under my wing in the past. Knowing how my just “Being there” for them when they needed someone, and now looking at the adults they have become or are becoming, fills me with a pride that is unmatched. Today, no longer beneath my wing but, flying strong on their own. I wouldn’t change a thing…



I also dedicate this story to two of my newest "Nephews", Logan and Coby. After recent events in Logan's life that caused his own father to unjustifiably subject his own flesh and blood to pains no 13 year old should EVER experience, Logan's Uncle allowed all of us to be there via our readers forum at a time when he needed friends to support and help him heal. I am honored to call you, and your friend/brother Coby, Nephews.
I love both of you guys and will be right here should you ever need me, always!

Lastly, (and certainly not least) I owe a huge amount of thanks and gratitude to my "Family" in our readers forum. On a daily basis they have encouraged me to continue on with my writing. A.Christopher for giving me a home for my work, and ACfan for working with me every step of the way building a home for my ramblings. "I love you all, and could never thank you enough!"
