My son is a little over a month old, and his father has only ever seen him once, the day after he was born in the hospital. In the last month he has contacted me a few times about seeing him, but doesn't follow through.
The background of the situation is that I was with my sons father until I was about 8 months pregnant, things got tense between us because he didn't understand why I was so emotional. The night things finally blew up between us he slept with another girl, in our house, with me on the couch not even 10 feet away. He is now with the other girl, has been since the day I left. While I was still pregnant she was threatening me because I told them she wouldn't be involved with my sons life. She is now expecting, his now second child, when I gave birth barely a month ago.
She is basically the reason the father isn't in my sons life, when I ask him to leave her out of it, meet me without her to see Mason (my son) he refuses, says I'm the immature one, and I have to get used to the fact that she is in his life. I just don't trust her, or want her in Mason's life, but if possible I want my son to have a relationship with his father. What do I do? Try to get past her threats to me, and let her see my son with him there? Or give up on Mason having his father in his life?
