True, Kind Of
Yes, I am a father
, but in name only since I have seen him only twice when he was real young. I was a father for the one week that his elder brother survived his premature birth, but my rights as a parent were taken away from the younger while I was gone. His mother's new husband adopted him and he doesn't know I exist or that he has a whole extended family. I can only wait until he reaches 18 and then try and reach out to him and let him know that we are all here as well for him. It is hard to imagine missing someone you've barely met, but I do.
