    "Hi Ashley, I'm Your Dad."

    The SUV pulled up to the parking lot of the Italian restaurant. I sat still in the passenger seat for a moment, unable to move. My heart beating through my chest. I could feel my cousin's eyes on me, measuring my emotions, but my eyes were on the small group of people at the...

    Just Met Him In His Home Country

    My father never knew about me. My mother conceived me in England when she was studying abroad. I knew nothing about him until my mother died, and then I tracked him down and contacted him. He paid to fly me to England for a paternity test. So I got in at midnight, and when I...

    I met my dad last year in September

    and it's kinda hard to talk to him because he speaks Spanish and I don't know much of it. He wants me to meet his side of the family but I am really really scared about that. I'm not perfect I have so many issues and I don't know if I'll disappoint them in any way. I feel like...

    I Just Met My Father

    I am 36 years old and have recently met my father for the first time in my life.  His explanation for why we have not had a relationship prior to now is that my mother did not follow up with him regarding her pregnancy and he did not have a way to contact me.

    Roller Coaster Of Emotions.

    I just found and contacted my father for the first time in over 23 years. I did have contact with him when I was very young for a very short amount of time (and when I say short amount of time, I mean I only ever saw him about 3 times). I have felt every emotion possible about...
