Quoting nooch:" i agree but he has mental issues (depression,anxiety, has tried to kill himself before) and i have ... [snip!] ... have the confidence in himself to be a parent even though he was a good father when he was in her life. does that make sense? "
Yeah, but I would think that would be more of a reason not to let him around her? I don't know. I have depression and bipolar issues as well, but I take medicines every day for mine to keep myself regulated and sane for my child. I would personally be too afraid to call, but maybe he's waiting on you to extend the offer for him to see her? Just be 100% sure it's what you want.
