I have twin girls that are 7 and my son is just under 11 months. My husband left us when I was 7 months pregnant w/ him. The girls had a real dad for 6 years. They know what it's like. They know what they're missing. He really was a great daddy. It's a long story, but he pretty much isn't in the picture at all anymore. Barely calls. Has visited once in 9 months, etc... He just really, really changed.
I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else was in a similar situation and had some years go by already. We have lots of home videos of my husband playing w/ my girls and I'm concerned about the impact that and other things will have on my son as he gets older. Don't get me wrong, I have a whole other host of fears for my girls as well. I'm just concerned that the timing of my husband's departure may impact my son in ways that I want to protect him from.
