Father’s Day

On Father’s Day, Thinking of the Dad Who Raised Me, and the Father Who Might Not Know I Exist

My biological father (yes I’m using “biological” instead of first, natural, “father” whatever… it seems to fit in this case) should know I exist. He was told my mother was pregnant, and then broke off contact.  He doesn’t know I’m a girl, may have conveniently forgotten all about me in wishful thinking.  I’m not exactly happy to figure out my bfather was probably not the greatest guy.  😛    I know his name, we think we’ve located him.  I’m too chicken to write. Just don’t want to know *for sure* he’s a jerk, or doesn’t want to know about me, etc.
