I want you to know that I agree with you from a motherly standpoint. Just because a man fathers a child, that does not entitle him to being a "father."

Unfortunately, I imagine it's different from a legal perspective, although I can't imagine a court/judge granting someone custody (at least not joint and certainly not immediately) after not having seeing their child for years.

I didn't mean to suggest AT ALL in my post that you should just hand your child over to him. He would be a complete stranger to her and obviously you really don't even know him anymore or trust him so way! I hope it's never an issue for you.

I just know that a time could potentially come where she does ask or where he does contact you and you may have some serious decisions to make regarding how present he is in her life, should either one of them (more him than her) choose to pursue a relationship. Does he live in close proximity to you?

I hope I didn't offend you or come across as agreeing with him.
