Re: DD really wants to know her father
My neice is in the same situation. Her dad has not seen her since she was 1 and she will be 11 in August. I would say to her, "Your dad never learned how to love, but he does love you. He has a lot of guilt about not seeing you and the longer he goes without you the harder it is for him to face you. You were made out of love, and God gave you to mommy and your mommy's family".
