I've had no Dads, I've had many Dads. It was the age of discipline, it was the lord of the flies... My Mom had me at 19 to my real Dad who was Iranian, and then had a couple of re-marriages -- where I took on the names and identities as various step-Dad's kids, with significant bouts of self-raising (as a latchkey kid).
My Mom had me at 19 to my real Dad who was Iranian, but they got divorced after a couple of years. My first Step-Dad (Barry) was an artist and raised me from age 2 1/2 until about 11 -- when my Grandma informed me that he wasn't my real Dad over Thanksgiving dinner -- because that's what Italian grandmothers do.
