We created our toys and fun through imagination. Everyone around, mostly, was poor. So, we never knew our circumstances. We had the basic necessaties. I grew up not knowing my biological father and I have no feelings concerning him at all. He simply was not a part of my life. He died in 1970 when I was ten years old. Never meant a thing to me. You cannot miss what you never had. My grandparents and mother were my life. They gave us all the love and discipline we needed. I was lucky. Not every child has a place to run to. Today, my grandparents are gone, but I remember what they did for us. My mother had four children and only three survive. I am her only child that cares for her. She is mentally sharp, but physically feeble - due to working so hard to take care of her children. I make sure she needs for nothing. Whether it be love, talking, caring, listening or providing what she needs......and wants. My deceased brother was ashamed of his upbringing and the circumstances. I feel blessed - and told him so. I also made sure my mother understands how appreciative I am for all she has done. She was all the parent I ever needed. My father? Who?
Powerful message.

I'm not surprised that some of those people don't want anything to do with their fathers at this point.

I bet you their fathers now regret walking out on them after they became famous.

I don't understand how a man can make a baby and just walk away from that child, I can't relate to that.

You don't have to know your biological father to be somebody.

I don't know how any person could walk out on their child and not even think twice.
