You know what..it is easy to be a biological father but to be a father or a dad is a totally different story. I am so sick of people saying we have no right to deny the father from the child. I am his mother. I have kissed every boo boo, changed every diaper, bought every can of formula, diapers, clothes, covered all doctor bills, bathed him and tucked him in every single night. My son's father was "in his life" for almost a year if that's what you want to call it. I am so tired of all these posts saying the child will hate you later on or that they have the right to see the child or I shouldn't have filed for child support if I didn't want him in my child's life. You know what when I have to get on Government assisted insurance because I can not afford it for my son that was born 2 months early and have never had any help from his drunken drug addicted felon father, they made me file for child support even though he was in prison. My son is now 3 1/2 and if you ask him who his daddy is he says his papa or his uncle. I have told him about his father and showed him pictures but guess what...he doesn't know him. Now all of a sudden he wants to be in my son's life?? He wasn't thinking of my son's safety when he robbed and then set 6 fires in a house right next to the gas water heater about 15 feet away from where me and my son slept. So no I will not allow my son to have any type of relationship with him and for your information no I have not received any of the "$10" he was ordered to pay a month. Why would I allow my son to build a relationship with a man that is a drunk drug addict at the bar every single night gambling away the money "he does not have" just to have him go back to prison and crush my son's heart?? You tell me how that is best for him??
