Is it possible for a father to raise one and not the other?

My sons father is having another baby. He hasn't seen my son in 4 months( and that is only because his family talked him into coming to his birthday party). Prior to coming to the party he seen him rarely. He doesn't call to talk to my son, nor does he even ask about him. I feel so bad for my son because he's fatherless. All the while his "father" and new girlfriend of only 3 months are flaunting their unborn child all over social media. It's heartbreaking. How can he be so excited about another child when he pays his first no mind at all?

You need to stop looking at their social media and concentrate on doing the best for your son.
You can't someone be a Father, all you can do is be the best Mother for your son that you can be.
Move on and make sure that you have custody, visitation and child support in place.

It sucks, but it's life for all too many.

My kids are 14, 14, and almost 8 and are lucky to hear from their father a few times/year (he left the day our 3rd was born) and might see him once a year... or once in 2 years. They have a 4.5 year old brother through their father and his current wife.
