Should I forgive my Father for my Boys?

Jeramie - posted on 09/07/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am a 21 yo single mother with twin boys. I grew up in a single mother home & get disappointed with myself at times because I allowed myself to start my children's life with the same "disadvantage" I had. With all these feelings surfacing, I decided that I would reunite with my father. I've known where he was just like he's known where I was since I was a toddler but decided to cease contact right before I graduated high school. I didn't tell him myself that I was pregnant but I told his oldest son & mother, my brother & grandmother so I would guess he knows. I'm doing this for me & my boys because I kno I have a lot of anger towards my father that needs to be let go of.

I guess my question is has any one done any thing similar to this, for what reasons & what should I expect ?

Hi Jeramie, I am 34 years old with three kids. I grew up without my father (didn't meet him until I was 19), and when did meet him, I had soo much hate on the inside, my head started to hurt. I felt that my father was a coward and he wasn't a real man, and at that point I wanted to have nothing to do with him. Years went by and I learned (through crying, prayer and close friends) to forgive my father, not for my kids/not even him, but for me. GOD can heal your heart, you just have to learn to let go,,,,so that you can allow your kids to have a wonderful relationship with their father. Remember, your father and their father, are two different people. Don't punish their father for YOUR father's mistakes.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
