Dan really did think that back home in the UK he had problems, all those years ago. After dropping out of school and getting married to the love of his life, he realized he wanted something more than anything. A kid. Phil agreed to it, knowing that the new home he had with his husband was lonely yet big enough for another family member that they could love and cherish. They adopt Alex, a shy teenage boy with a big heart. Dan really did think he escaped what he thought were problems, but nothing could prepare him for what adventures Alex would be bringing.
