don't force but encourage it. time wasted cant be given back .
this question is one of old for me. My real father never met me he left before i was born, it hurt knowing he never wanted to meet me or talk to me. but yrs later i've met my fathers sister and her family, and i feel somewhat complete in a way, as for the situation with his X, well its another relate to my life, my step father, has six kids with another woman she basicly brain warshed them into thinking he was nothing could do nothign for them, it hurt him the most i think knowign his own children didnt want him around though his youngiest stays in touch its hard on him . the best soultion is to dont give up if he wants a realtionship with his daughter, thats the main thing, thats his daughter, not just the X's she didnt give herself a sperm cell.. so she needs to back off a bit and allow him to see her if he wants to though if he doesnt then im sorry to hear that, i wish the best of luck
