Doesn't it make you wonder? I mean, I don't think any of us on the boards here could ever even DREAM about not having contact with our children yet some fathers seem to just write them off mentally. How can they do that?[/b]
Funny you should ask that question since my father brushed me off when he divorced my mother when i was 5 months old and never saw me once until he died 2 years ago when i was 32. I tried to talk to him once and he didn't want that either. Gave up all his rights on me through court/legal procedures and ALSO gave up him last name on me. I took after my mother's. Never have been able to figure out what i DID to make that happen. I can understand his issues with my mom, but what he did makes him less of a man in my eyes. So there is the child's point of view.......

As for the original post our family is blended also. My husband has a 9 year old daugther from a previous marriage which we see part time and we are expecting our first together in December
