My father is a dead beat dad, and has been since i was 11.
My father never set foot in the hospital when i had cancer 3 FUCKING TIMES. In High school. 14, 15 , 17. I have 3 grand kids of his and one on the way. Does he visit ever? NO. He asks my sisters to ask me to call him. He can call or contact me if he wanted to. I debate seeing him or not. He never bothered to see his TEENAGE DAUGHTER GOING THROUGH CANER ALL 3 SEPARATE TIMES.
(I was told I could never have kids and am on #4, our last, but he's never met my youngest, 13 months now). When he did meet me and my older children I saw him for 20 minutes at most.
Do you have a dad who was never there? Or did you have a great dad? I wish I had one.
