    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...

    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.

    He Died 20 Yrs Ago

    I have no memories of him. My mom said he saw me a few times when I was a baby and that he chose not to be in my life. I don't buy that for one second. My mom is an evil biotch, so I have no doubt in my mind that she kept me from him. Then he died when I was 10. She told me my...

    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...
