Girls abandoned by their Father
What happens when the father quits his job and runs home to live with his mother's and doesn't work. The father of my girls did just that. He has not paid in over a year now, and has not called them since June of this year. When not just give up your rights to your children if you do not plan on supporting them and stay out of their lives forever. This is what I think, he should do. He sends them a message, saying they may not here from him for awhile. I told not to call again, they are not toys to play with when he wants. What kind of father would totally abandon his children? I only want was is owed to my girls. I have one with learning disabilities and the other with Type 1 Diabetes. They are very wonderful girls and very talented. Both are very agree with their dad. We don't bring up his name very often.
My girls are in high school, and he has not been in their lives very much. My husband has been the only Dad they can count on. He moved away when the girls were still very young(5 and 7). He lives here in Lovington, New Mexico with his mom. Who does not care if he pays his child support or not. He has a bench warrant for contempt of court for not appearing in court for a child support matter in May2011. He owes over $24,000.00 in arrears.
I have never met a man so cold and heartless as him. So easily he pushed them out of his life. With no worry about how they are taken care of, or if they have the things they need. God will make sure he pays his dues, it will only be a matter of time. He will get caught, and he will pay for what he owes my girls.
