Fatherly Thoughts

I’m so sorry that we have to be apart. I’m sure this is hard on you. None of this is your fault. Your mom and I have differences of
opinion in how we want to raise you. It doesn’t mean we love you any less.

We are two different people who can’t seem to work things out. The physical separation has also created emotional barriers that prevents us from really understanding one another. Every time I have a conversation, everything gets so mixed up. She spins me around. At times, I don’t know my right brain from my left.

There are a lot of unexpressed emotions on my part. None of this makes sense to me. I want so badly to understand, and even work things out, but your mother is beyond words. There are certain things she feels there is no coming back from, that this is how it has to be. I’m sorry she feels that way. I wish it could be different.

Dad is not blameless in this situation and neither is your mother. We are two people who have grown apart. We have two different parenting styles. The only thing we have in common is the love we share for the two of you. 

Please know that you two are the light of my life. You are God’s greatest blessing to me. There is nothing I love more than spending time with you guys. I hope our time together creates cherished memories that stay with you for the rest of your life, and that we’ll always share a special bond.
