So, I'm a bastard child. The dude that knocked my mom up lived 10 minutes away in another town my whole childhood. Mom said she left him when she got pregnant because he was an alcoholic.
Now I'm getting older and seeing people around me having babies. I see the way the dad's are. I don't get how that motherfucker could not care he had a kid living so close, but not want anything to do with me. It never used to bother me. I've known since I was really young. But, lately I've been thinking more and more about it. Dude has three other kids now. I've creeped out on FaceBook. I'm definitely the best looking one. So, that's good.
I'd like to get in touch with him. Pretty much just to get his side of the story. But, I don't know how to go about this. I could get my mom to arrange it, but for some reason I'd rather leave her out of it. I don't even know if it's a good idea, or if I should just leave it along.
I guess I want to know if anyone else has dealt with something like this? Long lost relatives, or whatever. What was it like to contact them? Was it worth it?
