I lives with them until I moved out when I was eighteen. So, six years. He took me to the Dr when I was sick, taught me to drive...After I got married, and had my children, he was their grandfather. My dad hasn't been much of a part in my life.
A little over a year ago, my mom and my stepfather, (whom had been my father figure) were getting divorced. I was hurt, but knew that it was their lives, and their choice.
During the process, I found out that all of this time they were together, all the time I had known him, he wasn't who they had claimed him to be.
He had apperently done a crime and spent over a decade on the run with my family. And my mother knew the whole time! I was shocked and hurt, to say the least.
After they divorced, he decided that he needed to turn himself in. He has done some time and is now on parole.
He wants to take a trip down here in a few weeks, after he can get permission. Well, his parole officer faxed me a "permission slip" for me to sign giving him permission to see my children.
I was looking over the paperwork, and it is informing me that **** *** (his real name, which I never knew until after the fact and its still weird to see) is a convicted sexual abuser, and that by signing this paper, I agree to never leave my children alone with him, and that I am aware that he has not completed a program.
This is so strange to me, and so unreal. I feel weird to sign this piece of paper because of what it says. On the other hand, he was my dad! I loved him as my father!
I'm so confused. What do I do?
