my daughters dad isnt in the picture anymore, which is fine for me, but hard for her, and she doesnt talk to me about it very much, shes 6yrs old, he has only been SOMEWHAT involved for the past 2.5 yrs, so i was just wondering what kind of thoughts did you have growing up? did it bother you? did you know why he wasnt there? how did it make you feel? was there anything anyone could have said to help you deal with it better? do you think you were better off without him? im just trying to understand where my daughter is coming from, because it seems like it doesnt bother her, but then once in a while she'll look so sad, and it kills me! :( any input?

I didn't grow up with my dad; in fact either of my parents. I did know why my dad left me; to make a better living but I wasn't part of those plans. I saw my dad again at age 15 and since then our relationship is non existent. We are from 2 different worlds, as much as it makes me sad to say this...yes my life is better without him. I don't think that there's anything my dad couldn't given me that I have gotten myself or found myself. It's sad for my kids because they know of him but have never met him. My dad is an alcoholic, definitely not anyone I would want my kids around but I don't wish him bad at all. My oldest bio's dad is not around either; by his choice. My son asks questions sometimes, my hubby is is father but he knows his bio's dad exist somewhere out there, he thinks his life has turned out for the better without him there. My hubby is a great father to him, I couldn't agree more!
