I have reached out to him but he has no intention of seeing him. Every month I ask him if he wants to meet his son and he makes up excuses. He does call every year around his birthday to send money to help with the party and gifts. I do not want my children growing up and not having a connection with their father or his family as I did. The last time we spoke I offered to bring my son to visit him but he said it wasn’t a good time, because he recently found out that his father has been diagnosed with cancer. I would love for my son to have a connection with his father but it is not something that I will force upon them. The only thing that I want is to let my son to know that I at least tried and that it is not his fault.
As a mother I want my kids to have a connection with their fathers. I know there are a lot of things that I missed out by my father not being around. I will give my children the option of making that connection. I do not want to continue forcing a relationship if the other person has no interest. I will say that I have a loving boyfriend that cares and treats my kids as they are his own.

    But we didn’t, we didn’t understand what was going on and why he didn’t want to see us. All I wanted to do was speak to him. Just a week later my uncle passed away. I understood that all my family wanted was for me to keep the happy moments with my uncle. But what they didn’t understand was that every memory I have of my uncle is a happy one, even my last ones of him in the hospital smiling through the pain just to make us happy.…

    The hardest part was having just my father break the news to me because my mother wanted to wait. However, my dad knew telling us kids was the right decision. I respected his decision because it was better to find out by him rather than someone in the small town that we live in. Although it was hard hearing this news coming out of my fathers mouth, it would have been worse hearing it from a friend or different family member. In all honesty, I did not know how to react or what to think when I heard this news.…

    During this time, he shielded me from our other brothers who were not accepting of me.

I say this because going through life when I was younger I did not really understand how important relationships are. I believed that what is presented to you was a privilege and not to think anything of it. My perspective changed when my middle brother, JohnStark, was diagnosed with cancer. Not knowing whether or not he was going to make it in the beginning, if they would have to amputee this leg, or finally remove the femur was a very hard process to watch someone that I love go through.…

    I was hoping to have this great life but wasn’t putting my trust in God’s plan or loving the people around me the way I should. I treated my parents so poorly and they didn’t even realize it.
