13 years old and with a dead mum and out the picture dad
I was born on July 8th 1999. My mum died just 1 week before my first birthday. On the 3 days before my 1st birthday my grandparents went to court to get custody of me. Unfortunately my dad did not turn up as he was busy getting high on cocaine and heroin. He turned up on my 1st birthday with a cake and a present which was going to be from him and my mum. I didn't see him for 2 years after that. At the age of almost 3 years he requested to see me but my grandparents said no as they had recently found out about his drug addiction. He then gave up. At the age of 5 we arranged for me to meet him it was the first time in two years that he bothered to turn. up to any of these meetings high or at all. We haven't heard from him since apart from a card on my 8th birthday. I recently turned 13 and nothing was sent. I sat there for 4 days after my birthday hoping for a card. Half of me thinks he was busy half of me thinks he just couldn't give a ****. My grandparents showed me a postcard 2 years ago from him from 7 years ago which they never showed to me. All I know about him is that he had a way with words which still make me cry whenever I read that postcard. Unfortunately he is another dad who is a lot nicer on paper than in real life. I went to visit my mums grave the other day. I was hoping he would show up but he has probably forgotten by now who my mum even was.
