She knows who loves her and she will always know that she is loved by you and that's all that will matter. Tell her some crazy lady on the internet is wishing her a very happy birthday, though!
I know it's hard to want someone to care like you, and to not understand how someone could not. But....you get her all to yourself! You get to see her grow and you get to experience all the wonderful little things kids do.
I know the feeling...my son turns 4 this year and I don't even bother to invite BD anymore...he's never gotten so much as a card
I know that your heart is breaking for your daughter...it gets better, trust me. My son is surrounded by so many people that love him and he's never even asked about his father, whom he's met a few times.
tell her happy birthday from me too! there are tons of women on here that love you and your little girl. i know that doesnt make up for it but we care. one day you will find an amazing man and that man will teach her what its like to have a real daddy. some men do not make good fathers. its not your fault and its not your daughter.
Thank you so much everyone. You guys always cheer me up.
We had her party today, and more people than I thought showed up! I had so many friends and family..it was amazing. I couldn't have possibly asked for a better day or better people to share my happiness with.
