Heartbreaking Poem From Daughter To Father
It's not your fault! Daddy or Mommy isn't thinking too clearly right now. He's lost his way for a while, but later, when he finds it again, he'll want to see you more. In some cases, parents are mentally ill. They may have broken under the pressure of the divorce. If that's the case, say, "Mommy or Daddy is sick in a special way that makes her unable to think right. My dad abandoned me right after my mom died when I was 9. It was so difficult. But I knew in my heart that it was no one's fault except his. Your daughter loves you and will always love you. My dad left before I was born.
He and my mom were still boyfriend and girlfriend at the time and she got pregnant. She had been trying to get pregnant from her first marriage, but that didn't go so well. When she told him, he said he didn't want to raise a child, that he wasn't ready. My mom was already around the age of 40 and she said, "Fine, I'll raise my child without you. It'll be 14 years next week. Surrounded by a loving family. Men can be a pain, but sometimes if you stayed with that man, he might not have treated your child well. But I'm doing fine and a Junior Olympic swimmer who has a loving family.
And that's all I need! My dad left almost 3 years ago, from this upcoming summer. He left without a goodbye, and I missed him in the beginning. Over the past 2 years I have had so much hate for him.
The thought off him made me want to punch something, someone. I am currently 15 years old. He missed Christmases, birthdays, and many other holidays.
What to tell your kid when their dad is not involved
Recently, I moved states away from him, my mom seeing no chance of him coming back, and since then, I miss him. He has ruined my like in so many different ways to the point where it hurts. I want to see him again, but to the point that it will hurt, I don't know. Can anyone relate? Fathers love their children.
When the child asks
I haven't seen my daughter in years - not because I don't care, but because her mother and grandparents ripped my heart out of my chest. I was cheated on, beaten, and jailed. To top it off, my car was stolen, I was kicked out of my house, and robbed by my ex-wife. There is a system designed to separate fathers from their children.
It happened to me and my daughter. I love her but hate her mother, grandparents, and the army of enemies standing between me and my child. Just remember that our life doesn't have to stop because someone else decides to be selfish. We are responsible for our outcome and to break that cycle with our future. Other people should not have that control over our emotions, even if it's our parents. We determine our happiness. We control how our story ends. Let's pick ourselves back up and be better people than those who abandon us. Let's show that we are different and won't ever abandon those who love us.
I'm praying for you all. Yes, I relate to this. My dad left me when IO was just turning 10 years old.

His significant other mistress walked straight to me, my mom, and my siblings while we were in the mall. My mom yelled at her and we left. I got so depressed ever since. He taught me a lot about being a good kid and that was what I get in return: being hit by the door when he kicked it down. I lost myself. I almost committed suicide when I was just in third grade. I knew since I was just 3 years old since the word mistress repeated in my head and found out what it means when I turned 8 years old. I was abandoned at home afterwards. We rarely smiled or laughed. I felt invisible, worthless, a waste of space, and a lot more.
I stopped taking care of my health today. I never loved myself. The bullying got so hard for me in sixth grade. But I know I'll find myself in the future. Yes, I can relate to this. My father left me when I was 8. I am now He's was there when I was 8 but wasn't at the same time. He was physical here but mentally he was not. He broke me before any boy could. He called me names. I hate him so much. He left me thinking I'm not good enough for him, that I'm a waste of space. I cry out for help, but no one answers.
I cry myself to sleep every night knowing he's happier without me in his life. Hi, I can relate to you. My dad left me about 5 years ago and I'm now He left without saying goodbye. At first I never ever wanted to speak to him or see him again, but now I really miss him, and I want him to come home where he belongs. Hey, I promise you it gets better. My dad left me too. All I have is pictures from when I was little.
He left 3 years ago before summer and I'm also I'm sorry you have to go through this, but you are not alone. You are loved and you matter.
This poem relates to me on many levels. By the age of three, both of my parents were not around anymore. My mom left me and my dad when I was two years old. I remember watching my dad get arrested by two police officers when I was three. My mom and I got in touch just last year. My dad never wanted me from the day I was born. If it were up to him, he would have aborted me. Oh, yes…he works seasonal work and it is casual at that. Can I say anything to the kids?
I have to be the responsible adult. If their dad ever says nasty things about YOU, hopefully eventually they will realize what a good job you did, managing not to put that kind of load on them from your side. If I put him down in front of them I am putting them down too. I have been following your blog for awhile now.
Very entertaining: Can you tell me though where these books end up? That depends on the people and libraries that submitted them to us. Some of these we actually interlibrary loan from different libraries and they go right back on the shelf sigh…. Some are in such horrible shape that they probably just get recycled.
Thanks so much for the info. I am interested in illustration and the ones in this book caught my attention. Incidentally, you should see what the asking price is on Amazon. Why is there never any divorce books where Dads get custody. I was raised by my dad and it always upset me that moms in the books always got custody and dad was a disinterested party. So those divorce help groups for kids never helped me cause they always assumed I was mistaken when I said my dad had custody. They thought it was, my Dad had visitation or joint custody.
30 Things You Should Never Say to Your Kids While You're Going Through a Divorce
Even more so when this book was published. People just naturally assume mothers are better at raising kids then fathers. I think Daddy just revealed why the divorce happened. His emotional IQ is zero and he has no understanding of empathy!
