Hi Roiisgurl,

Your anger at your absent and criminal father is very understandable. Not wanting to see him because you would be satisfying his needs is also understandable.

However, what about Your Needs? You were so very young when he went to prison that, I am guessing, you must have some curiosity about him and what he is like. He was not your father in raising you but he is your biological father. Are you not curious.

What do others think??

to begin with thanx for ur reply. well to be honest with u i dont know wut to think or do. i mean i have heard too many negative things about him that i dont know if i want to ever c him again. well like i said he went in when i was 3/4 but came back out i saw him once when i was 7yrz old then again when i was 12. i remember like it was yesterday when i saw him :mad: we passed each other at a fle-market i walked right by him n he had no clue that i was his daughter he was with another lady n some kids. i got scared that day i dont know y n again i cried. i guess for one it pissed me off that i walked right by him n he had no clue that i was his daughter. wtf is that? so i guess the only reason i want to talk to him is to tell him how much he hurt my family n i with his absence. i mean if only he had been there i would not of gone threw so much as a child such as gettin abused by my step- father. it is just so confusein cuz my sis says not to talk to him n my older brother says yes(he is not their father) i kinda of understand my sis considerin the fact that she went threw similar abuse as i did but not with my step-father but with herz(which is my so called"dad") wut should i do????????plz i need so advise

I think Allan's question about your needs is an important one. If you need to confront the past by way of giving notice to your father of the consequences of his judgement all those years ago, then write him a letter. Try to keep the correspondence with him in written format to give you time to express yourself completely. This man can wait as long as it takes for you to feel comfortable with your response – if you want to respond.

Your father was a non-participant for your family, and I can appreciate how raw some of your feelings may be concerning him. However, as Allan already mentioned, if you decide to reach out to your father, you can also cover the gap you missed of his life over all these years. You can ask that he take account of the years he spent after he decided to leave your family.

Certainly, communicating with your father will not change the hardships your family suffered. But, in doing so, this may be the closest you can get in terms of justice.

well first of all i want to thank u for ur reply ur words mean alot to me.

i am just so confused right now a part of me wants to talk to him n tell him how much he has hurt me n my family. the other part of me just wants to ignore d fact that he wants to talk to me n live my life like if nothin happend.

all i know is that if i do talk to him it will be n person cuz i want to c his reaction once i tell him all i had to go threw just cuz he was never there. i mean he sayz that he wants to help us out like that we wont have to ever ask ne one for nething. i would of much rather had him n our lives than have all the money of the world. to top it off the money that he wants to help us with is drug money well that is besides the point i just think that...hhhmmm its a lil to late to just want to fix things. i no longer need him to show me right from wrong i now longer need him to show me how to ride a bike. i dont need him to take me to skool or to protect me from danger i dont need him period. my brother already talked to him n that pissed me off like u wouldnt imagine n wut got to me even more was when he told me that he agreed to everything he said like how he wants to be n his life n help him out i mean that just got to me bad:mad: he says that he only agreed cuz he was on roche pills. i just dont understand him well he must have his reasons i guess.

well i just talked to my brother right now n he said that he talked to him again n that he made up his mind n he is gonna give him another chance...wtf? man i swear that pissed me off then he said that i should just give him another chance man that just pissed me the fuck off n i told him that i had to go. after that i just cried of how angry i was:mad:

It is so hard to be left standing alone! It must feel like the pain of all this is never going to end.:) You can be proud that you are the one sticking to your guns and following what you need to do. The lure of money is not enough to make being in contact with him worthwhile, and you have stood your ground. I'm so sorry you had to lose your support network in the process! Can you do something nice for yourself right now, to cool down and get your you back?:) Dwelling on this stuff without taking a break will take you right down!!
