I have been married for 6 years and I have 2 children my daughter is 5 and my son is 2. June 19th 2011 my husband and I split up 4 days later he decided to move 2000 miles away from the kids. In the months time that he has been gone he has called my kids one time which was the 13th of July my daughter turned 5 on the 15th of July he never called her to tell her happy birthday :(. The one time that he did call it was because I was texting him begging him to call the kids. I answered the phone and told him to hang on that my daughter was in the bathroom and I set the phone down. Before my daughter came out I put my son on the phone he babbled with his dad for a minute adn then my daughter got on the phone and was talking to him when they were done on the phone I took the phone and said thank you to him for calling. He aplogized for everything and that he was sorry that it didn't work out but you never know what the future holds for us but then proceeded to say that he still wanted the divorce which was fine with me because I was the on that called it all off and split up. My kids don't really ask for him but every now and then my daughter will bring him up saying that hes going to come back. Well just the other day she came to me and told me mommy I don't have a daddy anymore he moved away because he doesn't love us anymore. I told her he is your dad he will always love you no matter what happens. I lost it I didn't know what to do I ran to the bathroom where I cried for awhile and then pulled it together. On the 19th of July me text messaged me and told me to never contact him again he disconnected the only number that I had for him I don't have an address for him and he has blocked me on facebook. He told me that when he is ready to talk to the kids he will call them. I don't understand how a dad can do this to his kids. He told me to file for divorce and that I could have full custody because he doesn't want to fight he just wants it done with. Is there anyone else out there that is having this problem? Do you ever think that he will come around to calling his kids? I am lost I don't know what to do. I am 24 and have never really had to deal with anything in life like this.
