A week has gone by and I was starting to wonder whether my father had decided not to pursue a relationship with me after all. However, when I woke up this morning I found this through the door.
I rang up to thank him for the card and present and he apologised for the last attempt. I’m hoping that his contrition will be turned into actual effort to address me properly. I understand the difficulty of turning back 40+ years but all I need him to do is to try.
