Amanda had been in contact with her birth father for ten years. She loved her birth dad but there were issues surrounding her half-siblings that couldn’t be resolved – and that he didn’t take measures to resolve – so she decided to cut off contact. But then Father’s Day loomed on the horizon. She’d sent her birth dad a Father’s Day card every year for many years, and just wasn’t sure what to do – should she send a card to let him know she still honored him as her birth father? Or would that send mixed messages? She posted her question in the Adoption.com forums seeking advice.
