Well i havent slept or eaten all week and im exausted. However after 4 years and 4 months my DS is meeting his daddy for first time today! My ex hasnt wanted anything to do with us untill recently (see no daddy but curious thread) So today is the day!! Emotionally it will be hard and hard to see my DS with my ex! However this is about my DS and not me! I am doing this for him! I hope my ex appreciates how lucky he is to be given this chance! And this is the only chance he gets!So i will post an update later wish me luck as i will need it! DS just keeps saying can we go yet? To him its an exciting they are so innocent arent they? Have a good day to all!!!!!

It is an important day for everyone. Can't imagine the butterflies in your tummy! Best of luck.

Have you thought about taking a photo of your ex with ds? Might be a nice thing for all to have...

havent seen the oringinal thread, I hope it all goes well. I hope your ex is man enought to stand up to his responsibilities. My dd dad wasn't and she derserves much better, so for me I'm glad she hasn't got contact with him. I hope your ex realises what a wonderful experience he has missed out on. good luck

Well i have to say that i survived and actually had a nice few hours with the ex!!Shock horror!!and his new wife and his parents, what a family afair it was!!

DS saw daddy staright away (recongnised him from the picture) and flew at him like a bat out of hell shouting daddy daddy daddy!!It was hard to see but i was happy for my son!! Daddy gave him a football and DS was so happy he was introduced to people and i was to the new wife she bought me flowers!!So straight away it all seemed very happy very relaxed and fun for Jack. He was so daddy daddy daddy and that was great. He took a bag of bits and bobs to show him and a picture he had done! I just sat and let him do what he wanted talking to everyone and his mum and dad were great. They have wanted this for so long! So i had my doubts and this is the first step only but it was the biggest! DS and Daddy had their picture taken and even the ex said its like looking in the mirror!

So thank you all for your encouraging words and i will keep you updated on the latest! I hope its all positive! DS is overjoyed and feels proud i think. Well thats the impression im getting!! Glad its over and im looking forward to some feedback from the ex etc!!

Much love to everyone!! From a very releaved Claire xx i still feel im in control too which is good!! xx

Well done Claire. I'm really pleased for you and your ds. It gives me hope.

that is great to hear!

claire2510 Mon 25-Jun-07 16:03:56

Thank you to all for your words of acceptance and encouragment. DS has been asking when can i see daddy again etc. I have explained soon and me and the ex are looking at a regular pattern for DS sake. My ex has changed and thats good he needed to! So hoping this is the start of a good relationship between ds and father and me and my ex!! I am so happy with my life and he is too so it should all work out!!

Thank you again to all and if your struggeling with anything remember there is ALWAYS light at the end of the tunnel!!
