My dad never knew his dad, never even knew who he was, he had a hard life growing up,with a single mum. He always said how much he detested it and pushed us all to get married before starting families so our children didn’t suffer as he did.
In the 50s, my mum became a single mum, pregnant to a black man. Against all odds and society’s prejudice at the time, she kept my half brother, even though her own father was against it.
Then she met my dad. He had 3 boys, his wife not long died. After raising my brother on her own for years,Mage finally meets a man she thinks will understand her position.
Nope. Dad didn’t want to know my brother. He decided to move the family to Australia (his 3 boys, plus another son they had together and myself) but mums first born was to be left behind.
I’ve known thus story for many years and it still makes me cry. Dad hated not knowing his dad, yet he denied my brother his mum and his siblings. Heartless
