The Word's That Come Out Of A Parents Mouth....

I think my real dad stop caring about me when I was 6 years old. He saw me as his child because I had his last name and his blood flowing through my veins. However, he stopped loving me at age 6. You may be wondering how I came to this conclusion. I have no recollection of ever being close to him. There were never any father/daughter trips, any just because gifts, barely any holiday gifts, no phone calls just to check up on  me, etc. If any phone calls did happen, they happened because I made the effort to call and then the conversations lasted a minute at the most. There wasn't any real bonding and I always wondered why. There is one possible explanation to the emotions that never developed or just stopped before I was old enough to see them.

One day about a year ago my mom was talking to a friend over the phone. From the subjects of that conversation I believe it was someone she grew up with. As she was talking my real dad became a subject. I'm guessing the other person said something about my real dad and asked if he ever wanted me to live so far away from him anyway. I was 6 years old when my mom and I followed my step-dad to Texas. My mom actually told this friend that he put up a fight for me to stay. He wanted to see his second oldest daughter grow up. I was shocked because I never knew how he felt. It's hard to read someone who's unreadable. My shock didn't last long though.

Within the same instance she said that her convincing words to my "nowhere nearest" daddy was a lack of child support payments. She said he gave up on me growing up in Florida because he didn't want to reach down in his pockets and put a fee on my life, the life he helped create. I don't think my mom knows I heard her when she said that, but it doesn't matter anymore. 

You may be wondering what this has to do with being a star. We only hear about the star's parents who come back. 

Fantasia's dad was cruel to her, but wanted a relationship after he knew she had money. Well, he wanted some of her money too. 

After more than 20 years Kelly Rowland's father spoke to people in the media and confessed that he finally wants a relationship with her. 

Terrell Owens could possibly be that father that walks back into his lives just because he's a role model. He hasn't proven this statement wrong yet. 

When the word star is attached to a person, some fathers waltz back into their children's lives. We hear it every so often.However, even if you or I happen to be a star, it won't guarantee the reappearance of a father. All of the star status things in the world that I have and will accomplish doesn't matter. This star stopped receiving love from her real dad when she was 6.
