My youngest was a wonderful surprise 21 years ago. From pregnancy to birth she was the easiest birth of the three I had. From the time she entered the world till about age ten we were inseparable.
That dynamic changed with my divorce. There was a long spell where she was angry with me for the divorce. She opted to live with her father and my heart was broken. I have shared before so many tears, fears that she would never accept me again.
I had the best advice from a therapist I was seeing during that time. He advised me to give her the space and let her find her own peace. He felt it would result in a positive way. IT DID!! For the last three years we spend lots of time together. I have watched her blossom into a beautiful young lady. And now 21…sometimes there are lots of highs and lows but if you remain true with your unconditional love it turns out well.
Dad and I.
