I met someone last night,my bio dad finally.He left after finding out my mom was pregnant with me.It took my mom and I 22 years to find him.The search began when I was 13 years old and it was hard for me through the years.I grew up with my stepdad whom is deceased,passed away from liver cancer 2 years ago.It was emotional after he came up and and opened the door.We were tearing up  and hugging a lot.Then my mom saw we needed our time together.I knew to stay calm and he saw I was hurt over the years.Then I asked him why he did this and was honest to me.Said he was young and dumb at the time being a coward.He felt bad about it over the years and it got to him wanting to make things right.He knows that he missed things in my life,growing up including birthdays,when I graduated from high school,when I got pregnant twice becoming a mother and I got married to my husband Davey in January.I understood and going to forgive him.He even said that he is not going to miss anything more in my life and one is my 36th birthday next year.Plus we are going to make up for lost time.He is married with two daughters.His two other daughters are 34 and 32 years old and has been married to his wife for 33 years.Said he wanted sons and learned he does not get what he wants in life.I have not met his two daughters and wife yet and will do this.

First of all I just want to say Welcome to the group.

I am so glad the first meeting went well. I am glad that you both can look past the hurt, the regrets, and move on to forgiveness. It takes a big person to admit their faults. It looks like you are both moving in the right direction. Good luck on your father daughter journey.
