“My daughter has not seen her biological dad since she was four. She’s 11 now. When she was two he contacted me and asked if I would allow him to terminate his parental rights so he could stop paying child support and I agreed.. I wanted to spare her the heartache of a revolving door father and the sacrifice of the financial support was well worth him never being able to disappoint her again. I never lied to her about where he went or who her dad was.. I have always answered her questions in the most age appropriate way possible. When she was four he contacted me and told me he has been diagnosed with cancer and would like to see her. I set aside a day and we met in the park. He had asked for two hours. He stayed 20 minutes and we never heard from him again.. Over the summer we ran into somebody that knows him and they commented on how she looks like his other children. They elaborated that he has settled down and has a family now. My stomach tied itself in knots thinking of how hurtful that must be to my daughter.. I cut the conversation short and we got in the car to leave and that’s when I saw her smiling. She said “mom.. He figured out how to be a dad. That’s such a nice thing. I’m happy for his kids.” And that’s the day an 11 year old taught me all I need to know about forgiveness”
– A comment on a Humans of New York post
Hello everyone, so lately I have been thinking about doing a Snake Plissken webcomic about our favorite outlaw badass.
It would be called “Old Snake” and take place after the events of “Escape From LA” and follow Snake surviving a new dangerous world. Right now this is just a concept, but I would really like to try out and wanted to know your opinion.
I will post more sketches of Snake from my proposed idea soon to give everyone some better idea of what it will look like eventually.
Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated! A big thanks to everyone who has been following my Snake Tumblr!
