To make a long story short, when I was 18 years old I impregnated a girl who I went to high school with. At that time in my life I was a real moron, I was afraid and didn?t know what to do. I stayed away and was never part of the baby?s life. I have always supported her financially but I have never seen her in person. Now at 26 I realize what a huge mistake it was and regret not being there for her deeply. However, I will not make excuses for myself, it was just flat out stupidity.
It has been 8 long years and I have decided to change all that. I realized that I made a huge mistake by not being there for her so I got in contact with the mother and we have talked and discussed the task ahead. She has been very cooperative and civil despite probably hating my guts.
I am meeting my daughter Victoria tomorrow for the first time. I know I have a long and tough road ahead of me but I am willing to do everything I can to try and make this right and to be the best father to her that I can be. Yes it has been 8 years but I figure it is better late than never. Patience will be the key in this situation. But I am confident that in a short period of time things between her and I will be great.
Her mother gave me some pictures of her and she is beautiful, she looks a lot like me. I am glad that this day is finally here, I am very proud to be her father despite not knowing her.
Wish me luck. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
