Title: Article on young widower parent.
Post by: adp on May 20, 2017, 08:02:29 AM
This is a tough but very beautiful and honest read on being widowed and becoming a parent in the space of one week. I so admire his honesty in admitting that "But in the first year she [his daughter] was still a stranger in my life, and I experienced her as a punishment. She had sentenced me to a continuation of my life. I am ashamed to admit it."

Poignant and sad, thank you for sharing.  This reminds me of a young teacher at my kids' school who died suddenly right after having a baby.  It was shocking, almost too much to imagine.  I always wondered what happened to the father, left to manage on his own.  So very sad -

The most common thing is that they cannot find a good woman. Not even one.


Now if a good woman happened to find them... ;)
