My daughter told me yesterday that her father sent her and invitaion to be her friend on FB. Her father, which she would rather call "a sperm donor", has never really been in her life in any way through the years. I asked what she was going to do and she said she wasn't sure yet. She doesn't want anything to do with him at all, and he doesn't understand why. I realize that it's her decision and am okay with it. I told her if it was me, I would ignore it. Why does he still try to be a part of her life, when he turned his back on her many years ago? He made his choice and I had no part of it. If he's feeling guilt, he should have felt that a long time ago. I guess since her half brother turned 18 last week, that he's had her on his mind. But the fact remains, he can't go back and undo what he has already done. Am I wrong for feeling this way?

People change with age and maturity. It could be that his priorities have changed and building a relationship with his daughter is important to him now. It is your daughter's decision but I don't think it is ever too late to try.
