Earlier in the year my son, LeRoy, five years old, would always ask about his absent father. I would always reply that he was in England.
As he got older, he started asking more questions. Finally I mustered up the courage and knew that I had to have a talk with him about different kinds of families and where his Dad is. I would have to do my best at explaining why only his Dad can really tell him why he just up and left. Why he moved away from us almost 6 years ago without a word or a letter.
After I had the talk with him, it was bad. He started acting up, cried and asked why his Dad doesn’t love him enough to stay or move back. Things got rough and I held tight to my hope and prayer that one day his Dad would reach out to him.
I asked his Dad’s mom what I should do. I also explained to her that I wanted to talk to his Dad and his Misses so we can all be on the same page. She expressed concerns about things turning out bad because his Misses was the jealous type.
I left things alone and as I thought and pondered on what else I can do to help my son, I kept thinking of all of us being a happy family and genuinely enjoying each others company. Being happy together. My son being close to both his Father, his Misses, their kids and I. I couldn’t figure out how but I saw my end result.
Well this was about July or August. Fast forward to November and the week of my son’s 6th birthday, I get an email from his Father and his Misses asking to get into contact with him. After a few e-mails back and forth, clarifying everything, they’re now speaking, Skyping and contacting each other all the time.
We speak often and it’s lovely. My son is more confident and feel so complete. I am in awe and Thank God for a wonderful blessing.
Positive thoughts folks!
Now I plan on using the L.O.A to get my dream job.
Until next time!
