I’m going to be meeting my paternal grandfather for the first time….at my rehearsal dinner! 

My mom and father (my step-father came into my life at age 5 and is the one I call “dad”) spilt when I was 4, divorced when I was 5. My father was a drug/alcohol addict (and apparently still is an alcoholic), selfish, abusive man. After marrying my dad, my parents moved to WA state with full custody of myself and my brother–and no contact with my father. When I was 15, I changed my last name to my dad’s on his birthday. I always wondering what my father was like because I only heard stories and slowly became depressive/suicidal over him “not wanting to be apart of my life”. 

Well, LONG story short, my brother, after 2 years of searching, found my father on Facebook of all places and being a friendly relationship. When my father tried reaching out to me, I wanted nothing to do with him; however, I did reach out to my grandfather (his dad) because never once did I ever heard anything bad from my mom or my grandma in the last 19 years. Although I know it’s been difficult for him, my grandpa has kept to my wishes to not let his son (my father) know of our relationship or what’s going on in my life. 

Our own relationship has quickly grown since last April and I actually invited him to my wedding next week—and he agreed! I’m very nervous, excited, anxious, everything you can probably think of. I can’t wait.
