Estranged from Dad
September 2, 2014

Hi my Parents got divorced when I was 2. I have a older sister who was 7 at the time. It was a very civil divorce my mom asked for no child support and full custody which she was awarded. My Dad was devasted that she left him so he basically just went away. He never fought for us he would see us once in a while but never took us anywhere he would just drop us off at his families house then pick us back up and brings us back to my mom. My mom got remarried to the best stepdad in the world this man came into my life at 2 and I only recognized him as my father. Growing up I rarely had any contact with my real dad just a occasionally phone call, basically I would call him to tell him about school and he would blow me off. There also was times where he was supposed to pick me up and he would never show up. Growing up was tough I went to public school and started working at age 13. My Dad got remarried, my new stepmom hated my sister and I right away. They had 3 kids. She made it clear that this was his new family. We were never a blended family and she made sure her kids hated us too. It was so hard going to family events on my dads side because she would not speak to me or my sister and are half siblings wouldn't either. I got married and had children of my own and after my stepdad passed away I tried to have some normal relationship with him it's still the same just 2 second phone calls. It wasn't till after my mom passed away that I really realized that I have to try harder to want to be excepted. His new children are his priority his youngest daughter makes it clear that he is her dad and she ended up having the most expensive wedding, you name it. She is very manipulative and if she doesn't get her way she goes crying to him. She even threw a housewarming party at her new house and invited all the family but me. I knew something was up because he has not called me for months. My older sister lives in the same state as them so she gets included in everything. These are my feelings: I hate being his daughter! I hate the 5 second phone calls. I cry so much over this. Usually when we hang up he thanks me for calling him. He is hurt that I decided against going to his youngest's daughter's wedding. She and I have no relationship as a matter of fact for my wedding my dad came alone his wife refused to come. His daughter and I never even speak to each other at all. I wish I was not his daughter.
