My daughter has not seen her biological dad since she was 4. She’s 11 now.

When she was 2 he contacted me and asked if I would allow him to terminate his parental rights so he could stop paying child support and I agreed.

I wanted to spare her the heartache of a revolving door father and the sacrifice of the financial support was well worth him never being able to disappoint her again.

I never lied to her about where he went or who her dad was. I have always answered her questions in the most age appropriate way possible.

When she was four he contacted me and told me he has been diagnosed with cancer and would like to see her. I set aside a day and we met in the park. He had asked for two hours.

He stayed 20 minutes and we never heard from him again.

Over the summer we ran into somebody that knows him and they commented on how she looks like his other children. They elaborated that he has settled down and has a family now.
