A super-sweet and now viral daddy-daughter dance photo is everything a blended family could or should be. The absolutely aww-dorable pic of David, Dylan and daughter Willow shows how love can turn a potentially troubled time into something beautiful.

So who are the two men in the pic with little Willow? David is Willow’s biological father and Dylan is her “bonus dad”—her mom’s fiancé. When mom and professional photographer Sarah took the fab photos, bonus dad Dylan decided to post the pics on Facebook.

Along with the photos, Dylan added some context for the post writing, “Our daughter Willow. You may never know how your love has changed us all.”

He went on to add, “We have molded ourselves into one unique family, of only for the sake of our children to know the power of love. Not only did I gain a daughter, I gained a brother and best friend. Thank you Sarah for letting this all happen.”

Dylan offered these words about how families of all shapes, sizes and configuration are each beautiful and awesome in their own way:

“When we care more about our children (on both sides of the party) than the way society has taught us to be towards (ex’s/baby mommas/daddy’s) then walls will fall, life will be free of hatred and remorse, and out children will conquer the foolish ‘norms’ that media has shoved in our faces.”
