mfacebookc My daughter has not seen her biological dad since she was four She's 11 now When she was two he contacted me and asked if I would allow him to terminate his parental rights so he could stop paying child support and I agreed I wanted to spare her the heartache of a revolving door father and the sacrifice of the financial support was well worth him never being able to disappoint her again I never lied to her about where he went or who her dad wasI have always answered her questions in the most age appropriate way possible When she was four he contacted me and told me he has been diagnosed with cancer and would like to see her I set aside a day and we met in the park He had asked for two hours He stayed 20 minutes and we never heard from him again Over the summer we ran into somebody that knows him and they commented on how she looks like his other children They elaborated that he has settled down and has a family now My stomach tied itself in knots thinking of how hurtful that must be to my daughter I cut the conversation short and we got in the car to leave and that's when I saw her smiling She said mom He figured out how to be a dad That's such a nice thing I'm happy for his kids And that's he day an 11 year old taught me all I need to know about forgiveness Unlike5512 Reply Oct 19 at 343pm Children are so wholesome!
