Happy father’s day to all the fathers who made a difference in a child’s life. I said that because I never saw myself a father until my daughter was born. I still remember getting off work and racing down to the hospital. While her mother was in labor, the hospital actually wanted me to fill out forms with her. So, I would ask her questions and she would answer each question with a long pause. I thought that was the funniest thing.
It weird that having a daughter has made me happy, but also, concerns about her well being. I have never trusted males, even the ones in my family, I have been disappointed by men. Father, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, and stepfathers have made me question my personality with ridicule or physical assault.
