We've talked a lot on this website about the painful void that children feel when abandoned or abused by their fathers. We also talked about how Growing Up Without A Father is a healing place for adult children who have grown up fatherless. How this is a place to share our stories with other fatherless sons and daughters, and possibly find forgiveness.

But what about dads –and adult children–who after many years apart, wish to make a new connection? Growing Up Without A Father may very well be the place to make this happen, to heal old wounds and begin again.

Perhaps strength doesn't reside in having never been broken, but in the courage required to grow strong in the broken places.

If you are a father who has not seen his children in many years, this is a safe place for you to reach out. To courageously tell your story, and perhaps find the children you may have thought were lost to you. And if you are a child wishing to know your father, this might be the place to courageously tell your story, and perhaps find the father you thought was lost to you.

Please contact us with requests for connections. We would love to hear from you.

“I am 41 years old, and after 23 years, I still carry guilt and shame inside my gut. I'll see a young man in his twenties and think, man he could be my son! There's a part of me out in the world that I never even seen him out of a diaper. I'll carry this burden to my grave, I know it. And on my deathbed, my son will not be by my side, and it's all because of me! I wish there was a way to make it right. I just gotta make it right...”
