A short history of Dylan

Back in 2007, good friends Sean and Violet made a pact that if they were both childless by the age of 30 they would have a baby together.

However in their drunk states they agreed to try immediately and not long later, Violet found out she was pregnant.

She gave birth in February 2008, however she wanted to raise her son, who she named Dylan, with her then-boyfriend Jamie.
