I have a beautiful 5 year old daughter who has had basically no relationship with her father due to his drug use but does have memories of him, and she see other children with father's and I am a very single (loner) Mother(protective). She cries for him sometimes even though she hasn't talked to him in 6 months and she wishes he would come and visit her or something. I 've had to explain that daddy's not well right now and that he's got things to take care of when the truth of the matter is He has broken his probation and is a wanted felon, we have protective orders and I fear for her. I am the one who will not allow contact. How do I console her and assure her of his love when truly there is none. He has chosen his other life over her all along. I have never spoken badly of him , but to see her so torn apart and cry so endlessly tears me apart. I am beginning to actually feel a hate I have never felt in my life. Does anyone have the same issues or a very emotional loving child in need of answers and constant reassurance?
