My daughter died on Jan 2, 2007. She had not seen or spoken to her father in almost 2 years due to the verbal and physical abuse she endured while briefly living with him. She had to go into therapy for a month (in patient) and then saw a therapist for several more months after being released. I was not aware of the abuse. You may find that hard to believe, but it is the truth. Since her death, her father has been very visibly and very verbally expressing his grief to the world. He's done all kinds of things to bring attention to himself, to show the world he was a good dad. He is acting like he was the perfect father. He is also taking every opportunity to put me down. After Kala's death I found her journal. I was shocked to read a letter she had written to her dad. She told everything. The thing is, she never sent him the letter. A part of me wants to send it to him so he knows that I know exactly what happened and he knows from Kala's own words how he hurt her. But a part of me questions if it my right to send it since Kala chose not to. I guess my honest reason for sending it would be to hurt him. It would serve no other purpose. Any advise or thoughts you have would be appreciated.
