To go or not to Go
My soon to be 23 year old son (yes he is an adult) is planning on taking a road trip to Texas to meet his bio Dad's family. His bio Dad has denied his existence for the last 23 years.
He wants to know where he came from, my ex husband was physically, mentally and emotionally abusive to him while growing up and until I remarried he has never had a real father figure (none of the kids have).
I am torn on him going out there alone, I like to think that it is mainly because I dont want him driving that far alone~ but I am also afraid that after he meets the other family members he will want to meet his dad and will be rejected again.
I dont plan on being stuck up his ass the whole time we are there, I have friends in San Antonio, Austin and in between that I would love to visit, but still be around if he should need me.
There is a lot more to this story, but if you were in my shoes what would you do?
