So my buddy Devin has horrible taste in women - this is something we've known since his first girlfriend when we were 11 - a couple months ago and woman he had a very brief fling with showed up claiming the father of her child was Devin...the man has his issues but he's got a good job and a wealthy family so he insisted on a paternity test before the baby was even born, so that was done and the mother gave him the results last week and he is definetely the daddy. Then this woman tells him she never wanted to get pregnant but couldn't bring herself to have an abortion so she's giving the kid up for adoption, and Devin being the guy he is can't live knowing he's got a kid out in the world somewhere so he'll be this child's only parent - the doctor told him it's a girl and he already picked her name and is completely loving the thought of being a dad but it's not often you see a single dad raising a child from birth without the benefit of the mother so he was simply curious as to any opinions and/or advice some women had for him. He's got about a month before his daughter is in his arms.Answer Question
