So, you moved to FL. Thus, Dad CAN'T see his kid EOW now, right? So school breaks are the limited btime periods Dad gets to see his son, as it CAN'T happen on a weekly basis because YOU MOVED OUT OF STATE.

And, yes, even though what he "wanted" was to stay home and not be obligated to spend time with family, now that he is dad to three kids, he is very happy he was NOT allowed to simply choose whether he had an obligation to be with his family or not. Actually Dad died maybe three years later. Turned out to be one of his last times to spend concentrated time with his father. Good thing he went!

Adoptive parents ARE "real" parents. Sharing genes is not what makes you a "parent"!
