In spite of Ed and his nonsense, my son has continued to do well.  He has goals, dreams and enough energy for three teenage boys.

This fall he will receive his academic letter and he continues to play football, perform in the band and varsity choir and participate in countless school, scout and church activities.  It has been 2 years since Ed took the time to see him play football.

When we were married and even when we were separated Ed talked about the importance of being there for a child.  Attending concerts, games, performances.  Letting your child know that you loved them by supporting and cheering for them at any opportunity.

Now, while my little boys achievements are growing and becoming more remarkable, the man who acted as his father for all those years has fallen off the planet.  Which means that I yell louder, cheer harder and try to celebrate even more.  It is a terrible thing to walk away from a child!
