Jimmy was the man who raised me for the first half of my life. My father wasn't around and my first memories of a dad were with Jimmy. Some of them were amazing...a lot of them were. He did EVERYTHING for me and always had time for me and I loved him...but he was also an alcoholic...a very angry one. He would beat up my mom and my brother whenever he got drunk and mad. Well, 8 years later I hear that he quit drinking and is a totally new man and that he was actually suicidal for a while after my mom and me left. He wants to see me and take in mind part of me still looks at him as dad, but I also remember all of the abuse. Do you think this new and improved man deserves a chance in my life?
