We have all heard of deadbeat fathers. Ones who don’t see their children, try to get out of paying child support and just downright awful dads. It’s a whole different ballgame when addiction has taken over their lives.
You should be ashamed of yourself. Not only did you lose your wife but you lost the best thing to come out of this toxic thing we called a marriage, our beautiful daughter.
You know she will be one in two weeks? You have missed so many firsts, so many memories you will never get back. While I am here playing the role of mom and dad because you refuse to get help for a problem that has got way out of hand.
I took away your parental rights. I have to keep my daughter safe and safe is not having her father locked up in the bedroom getting high while she is unsupervised.
Safe is not wondering if your drug dealer is going to come break in our home and hurt us because you fronted too much money for drugs and now you can’t pay it back.
I took her out of a poisonous environment and brought her to a safe, secure world where she is always happy and has so many people who love her.
Why don’t you love her enough?
One day I will have to explain to her about her “father,” hopefully by that time…she will have another father figure in her life.
She might resent me at some point for breaking up her family, but I’ll always know I did the right thing and someday she will too.
So I did what I had to do to protect her.
I hope it’s been worth it. And I hope you wake up one day and realize it’s never too late. And although when it comes to us, we will never have any sort of relationship, maybe you could find it in your heart to do something for somebody else for once, like your daughter.
You obviously didn’t love me enough. Maybe you could love her enough.
