The VANISHING FATHER

Lady Christie

My own father walked out of my life when I was 9 I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was waiting by the window with my bags packed and he never showed. At age 13 he stopped paying child support, then by age 14 when we could get him into court he wanted to be daddy all over again. I stood up and said forget you ever had a daughter and that was that. When I turned 22 I decided maybe I should make peace with him and I did which lasted 2 years. I gave it a good effort only to feel unwelcome. I have now once again cut off all ties with him, you can't have something that was never really there. Dads need to realize when they walk out they can never make up for lost time. They can never mend the broken hearts they leave behind.
