    is he worth it?

    Alright, I just turned 19 and I'm supposed to be meeting my biological father for the very first time in a few weeks. I must say I feel pretty conflicted. He never once tried to make contact with me, never a birthday card, never a phone call, never a child support payment. My mom...

    From Dad

    I don't know what you've been told, but I would never purposely hurt you. I don't care how you got here, or who your mother is, you are part of me, and hurting you is hurting myself. I know we have never met, but I want to explain something to you just in case we never do. There...

    He Died 20 Yrs Ago

    Abusive Foster Father, Damaged Mother, Biological Dad Drug-addict

      I’m not a star, not a hero, not a celebrity material, don’t know if I’ve got some great talent. No. But I know that I am different.   I am weird.   I wonder sometimes if it has something to do with my messed up childhood. The old classic...

    Never Knew Him

    Growing up I never asked about him or was curious about who he was. Whenever everyone was making a gift for father's day i always made one for my grandpa. I never met my dad and even now im not even interested in meeting him.
