All I Had Were Pictures

When I was a baby my mother dumped my (biological) father who was also her fiancee at the time because he was a cheater and was into drugs (not a lot, just a little). He was around until I was about a year old or so. When I was 2 and a half, my mom married my Stepdad, but He has raised me so I consider him the only dad I have. When I was 5 my mom and dad were seperated so my biological father came at christmas and brought me a gift. At this point I was told he was just one of my mom's friends. When I was 7 my mom told me that my dad was not my dad, the first words out of my mouth for some reason were"I know". I guess I always had this feeling that I had another father. My stepdad is the greatest and takes care of me so well.

A bit after my mom told me about my biological father, he called me. He asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him "a secret message locker barbie" it's weird how well I remember. He then told me he'd be coming to see me soon and said he'd bring me that.. He never came. When I was about 9 years old I met my biological father's sister(well one of them), and I really liked her. I would spend the night at her house and stuff like that. One day we decided to call my biological father but we got the machine so we left a message. A few hours later he called back. A few minutes into the conversation he said "hey I'm a little busy right now I'll call you back later" but he never did.

I have a whole album with photos of this man and his family but I don't have memories of his face. The last time I saw him, I was 5 and I remember the day quite qell just not the face. About 2 years ago, when I was 15 we had gone on our vacation back to visit our family in Florida, and to my surprise I had a friend request on myspace one day from my half brother tristian. It was such a surprise because the last tim I remember meeting him I was 9 and he was 6 and a half, so he didn't remember that. I wasn't even sure he knew about me.

My brother and I have talked on and off for a few years now. On myspace all three of my biological father's sisters have added me, and on facebook as well. I talk to one of his sisters more than the others and I've never met her. My biological father added me on facebook as well, but never talks to me. He said he loves me and feels really bad for not being in my life, although I still have trouble believing it because he seems more concerned about his girlfriends and what they want than to talk to his own child.

When I was 9 my mom took him to court for child support an hour away from where we lived and when she picked my up from the school bus she said David wasn't coming because his (then) wife didn't want him to. It seems He is more concerned about his next relationship with a young hispanic woman than reconnecting with his own daughter.....

That's kinda irronic. I have ALMOST the same situation, and my biological fathers name is david too. Lol<br />
I don't talk to his sisters though, I started talking to his other daughters, my sisters I guess. <br />
But if you really think about it, our davids aren't fathers, they just ***** doners <br />
Hope you're happy with your life and good luck
