Hello, this is my first time doing this chat, but i think i need someone's opinion that is not related to me. To start off, my babys father is not involved in his life, hasn't been at all. When i was pregnant he saw me twice and never once came with me to a doctor appointment. once my baby was born he came to my house and my brother stopped him and told him if he wanted to see his son he would need a court order, he would have to fight for him. Since that day, he hasnt showed up or called. He hasn't done anything, that i know of, to try to communicate with me or came to the house. My son is now going to be 2 in october and i dont know if i should try to contact the father, or collect child support. I am so lost because i hate seeing my son see other kids hug, run to their fathers and he is just there seeing. it hurts me, i know he doesn't know what is going on but he will sooner or later. and when he goes to school, what is going to happen how is he going to feel when its fathers day and he doesn't know anything about his father. I dont know what to do. my family doesn't want him involved at all but i dont care about him or the money, i just dont want my son to feel upset like how i feel when i see his little eyes looking at his cousin greet her father when he gets home. it hurts!
