16 years ago I gave birth to a wonderful handsome baby boy. Back then I can decide on what is best for him. Tell him that his father is working somewhere else and that his father loves him very much and that he will soon come back and see him. The question I usually get from him was why. As days turns into months into years, my baby became a teenager. The question of why became what and when. You see, my son finally knew that all these years I tried to protect him from getting hurt by not telling him that his father does not want anything to do with him. When I had my son, I was still legally married to this man. Although he lived thousands of miles away, I trusted him. and I thought that he will come for his son. He knew that he became a father and according to him, he was happy about that. A year later, I found out that he was cheating. I filed for divorce and change my last name to my maiden name. Over the years, despite the differences I had with my son's father, I still tell my son his father loves him. Now, my son is 16 years and he wants me to help him to get his father's last name off his birth certificate and to change his last name. As a single mother, I need help on what to do. I want to help him but I don't want my son to regret it later.
