My daughter is about to be a year and her father is absent in her life. I'm curious to know if I should contact his mother and let her know that she has a granddaughterI just put myself in her position and I would want to know if I had a grand. daughter out there... The only problem is that I do not have a paternity test because the state could not locate him after I filed for child support so would it be considered harassment? Plus I don't think she even knows about me... I live in AZ and his mother lives in OH. He is living with his girlfriend and their three kids in AZ but I guess he has nothing in his name so the child support case is in limbo. I honestly don't care to talk to him, it's his loss. But what if his mom would want to build a relationship with her granddaughter? I don't know what to do because I would like for my daughter to know her paternal side of her family. She is half black and I think it's important for her to learn about both cultures of where she comes from. I'm so confused. I've thought about this before but never done it. So glad I found this site to get some opinions before I take any action.
