My husband is seeing his daughter for the first time in 7 years- need advice

Nicole - posted on 06/26/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




My husband has not been allowed to see his daughter in 7 years, and only briefly before that. She is now 10 years old and the mother wants him to be in her daughter's life. We live 8 hours away and he is going to see her in 2 weeks, and he is so nervous (but very excited). Does anyone have experience dealing with this type of situation? Either from our side or his daughter's. He is going to meet her alone the first time without me or our 2 children because we don't want to overwhelm her. Any advice would be greatly appreciated in helping him be prepared for this experience.
I don't want to get into the details as to why he hasn't seen her before because I don't want to draw negativity to this story in any way.
