I have lived my life with very little contact with my father. He has been in my brothers life, but not mine.I have given him a bunch of chances to be part of my life, and have gotten my heart broke every time. Recently though, he has got a Facebook and added me as a daughter. I wasnt sure how to feel about it, then he started to message me. We have talked a few times since and he is now saying he wants to be in my life, that he loves me, that he can't wait to be part of my new life.
What would you do ladies, do I give him year another chance??
I have been in your shoes. I gave my dad so many chances it hurt. I got left again every time. It is hard to have your dad walk out once, after the 16th time it just leaves you in a spot you do not want to be in. My father like yours also got back into one of my siblings lives and did not try to get back into mine. It is hard because you always want your parents approval and love. It hurts bad when they turn their back and walk off. It can even make you question what is wrong with you. You need to look at yourself and ask if you are strong enough to handle it if you let him into your life and he walks out again. He may not, but you have to be able to handle it if he does. If you are and you want to give him a chance knowing he may walk out again than best of luck, but if him walking out on you again is something you can not handle than you need to keep him away.

To me i think it depends on why you cut him out in the first place...after what my father did i would never give him another chance...its up to you if you think he is not still the same man you chose to cut off contact with then go for it! I hope it works out for you!
