I SAW HER TODAY!!!!!!!!
I haven't seen my daughter since she was 11 months old. Me and her mother were a pair of young angry kids (she 19 me 21) when we had my JaJa. We seemed to never come eye to eye on anything so when we split our child suffered.
Today I went to child support court with her mother who thought that would hurt me or whatever. I felt it was about time you began to acknowledge that she was my daughter. The paper work took less than 20 Min's in all. NO fussing NO fight NO judge. Just the court sign paper work telling me to pay this a month and she had to agree.....which wasn't a problem for either of us.
Well the morning started stressed as I figured the court was cold, and I saw something that sort of upset me.....mainly our people filled the court. Brothers and sisters either in work cloths (warehouse work cloths) or street cloths. Me and my child's mother dressed....for court.
We walked into the door I spoke to her (she didn't want to, still trying to be angry FOR WHAT I have no idea) AND we basically had to sit side by side in the court.....no issues though we are adults of course. I also sat by an older woman and her grandson who were also having issues with the mother of his child. She made a statement that shocked me a bit but at the same time she was right. "You don't look like you belong here" which none of us did.
If you have a child with some one you should be able to talk out your issues....but I guess that is hard in this world where everybody wants to be the boss.
The paperwork done My daughters mother tried to rush from the court room. I walked her down and asked her a few questions trying to start a conversation. Soon enough the location of my child came up and it was said that she was HERE.
I took a deep breath followed her to the car to see her.........and my baby standing there looking just like with her shy look. I tried to hold it in but the emotional start to this year and the fact that I haven't seen her since she was in diapers broke me down. I tried away and weeped for have a second. Realizing that I may scare my child I straightened up to talk to her hugged her and told her (loud enough for her mother to hear) "I'm not going this long again without seeing you again"
We then went by my mothers job sending a few more moments with my child because it would be a while before I saw her again. Also her mother was rushing to jump back on the road for another 4 hour trip to Atlanta from Savannah. I hugged her kissed her and told her I loved her. Getting her clothing size from her mother I made it clear that just because I will be paying a "fee" for my child I will be IN HER LIFE.
I waved at the car and watched her wave back less shy smiling big at me. I watched her pull away back to their incredible distance only this time she left with a new loving memory of her REAL father.
