So, My son's father recently just lost another baby with his current girlfriend.. She was 6 months along and lost the heart beat 2 days later we were at a funeral. That situation is very sad.. however hoping it would be an eye opener for him to realized how fortunate he was to have a healthy son. My son goes Wednesday nights to (Braydens dad) Grandmothers house where he stays over night and on Thursday he will go see him for alittle while. He works at a bar-b-que joint.. Has since 16.. Hes been in trouble for DUI and marajunia charges in the past..My son is very close to my husband, My husband and I started dating when my son was 6 months old. He respects my husband like father, He takes him fishing, hunting, and takes him different places we all do together as a family. Only a handful of times had Braydens dad ever done anything one and one.. or took him anywhere.. My sons 4 now.. wont be long til He will be starting school and all of our time will be cut with him.. Its not bothering him right now his dad puts him on the back burner so to speak but Im sure it will later on.. I try to encourage Braydens dad to come get him and do things with him.. but after 4 years.. Im past the point of trying for a close relationship.. He will have to do that on his own.. I just dont know what to say to him when one day he asks why his dad dosent come around or do much with him? He has a wonderful life with Husband and I we try to do everything we can with him.. I just dont want to see him with his feelings hurt and theres nothing I can do
wow.. good luck on the dad finally coming around.. at least his grandma cares.
i gave up when BD purposefully did not come to DS's first birthday. hes now turning 3 soon and has no idea who his real dad is..
i just found out from BDs ex (mother of his other child) that he told her he would gladly give up all rights to DS but not to the other child.
DS thinks my fiance is his real dad. and i plan on keeping it that way until he is a little older. i keep some pictures of BD and some information on him written down so i can show DS later. but i plan on telling him the truth (keeping it nice lol) that his father just didnt want to stay and so he left. i will never bad mouth BD to my son but i wont hide his father either.
