I was married to difficult child's father for many years before difficult child was born. He walked out when I found out I was pregnant. We have not seen or heard from him since then. He was a serious alcoholic 18 years ago and I have no reason to believe that he changed. I got a letter in the mail from a medical facility requesting information about difficult child's bio dad. I called the number and it was to a geriatric long term nursing facility. I had called to let then know that I did not have any information to give them. I no sooner said who I was and what I was calling about and the woman was asking when I was planning on visiting. It seems that he is in the final stages of liver disease. I can't say that I was surprised. I just don't know what to say to my son. I am not even sure if I should say anything. Things are going down hill fast with kiddo since he got out of detention ( whole other post).
