I am a Mom who experienced the roller coaster ride of emotions my daughter went through without her dad active during most of her life. Loving my daughter sooooo much I begged him to participate and for a while he did. She was about 12 when he remarried and then decided not to call anymore. My daughter could not understand this, felt like she did something wrong and longed for the reason of why her Dad did not come around anymore. I explained, it’s not you, made excuses hoping to ease her pain. Anything to help her realize it was not her fault!
I was unable to grasp the depth of her pain as my Dad has always been a part of my life. He did so many things for her as well. He is her Poppy. However, for as much as he did, he still is not her Dad.
Her pain was a catalyst to construct this site. Maybe, if this was available when she was younger, she would have had an avenue to release her feelings.
So here it is…a site to love, vent, rant, praise, whatever the emotion…share your experience and let your Dad know! Even if your Dad is no longer alive you can share the joy he brought you or release some pain.
Dads, you are VERY much needed in your child’s life. It is NEVER too late!
This site is dedicated to my wonderful daughter. May she know her uniqueness and beauty in this life.
