I have been a single mom for 10years, raising three wonderful children without any help or support from their father. Two years ago their father contacted them on Facebook, they were a little excited, nervous, and confused at first and I thought enough time has passed maybe this can be good for them. We are all from New York and their dad has recently moved to Texas. He came to NYC for vacation shortly after reconnecting with them for a month. Only saw them 3 times. I thought ok take it slow it has been a long time and we have grown apart so much. My ex husband always favored on child, our first son. He has two other children with other exes. Anyway he likes to contact the children on facebook rather then talk on the phone I can understand because my children have such busy lives that it can be frustrating trying to have a conversation or meet up with them lol. so fast forward 2years later we are back in contact again and out of the blue he says we need to work together for our children sake and he wants to buy my son(16) a car for his 17th birthday. He tells him he got rid of the Jaq and drives a BMW so now my son wants to go live with him in Texas. He explains to my son he has to move and he's starting a new job and yadda yadda ya. but my son is still hopeful and wants to move in a couple of weeks right after school ends. WHAT!!! I feel like a part of me has died. I am writing this with tears running down my face and a rock in my throat. My son and I have been fighting a lot this past year. In the beginning of the school year he missed 22 days of school I never knew never got an email or call from the school, because he put all his info on the school forms. He is a very smart kid to smart at times. This change n him started when he dropped the chess team and joined the football team. then the girls and the cutting smoking marijuana and the fights btwn me and him. His phone was taken away I sold lots of his belongings on ebay and punished him. He has since got back on track doing not great but well got a new phone allowed back outside until 9pm and I was going to get the ps4 for his birthday. He also was going to do auxiliary police for the summer because all the summer youth programs were filled but my dad said he may can get him a job at the college where he works. when his father contacted me I explained what was going on thinking maybe he can talk to him or something and this is what I got. I feel like.....unexplainable.
