    I am so sorry to hear that k1020. How is the child, there are a ton of rumors going around, but I would just love to hear he is doing okay.

    As a parent, I cannot imagine what you are going through!! My heart goes out to you and your family and especially to your daughter. I hope that you will be able to keep her away from his family, as it is just not him that is worthless. I am sure that you know the background there. The only person trustworthy in that whole household is the daughter. Alex had to learn his actions from somewhere…

    trust me, as the mother of the child, it is a very embarassing and stressful situation.

    Reading this made me extremely embarrassed and disappointed. In one way it doesn’t surprise me, but in another it does. My heart goes out to that baby and family! I hope I don’t have to read another heart breaking story like this one, specially from a guy I knew…
