Will I Regret It If I Send My Birth Father A Father’s Day Card?

“Will I regret sending my estranged birth father a father’s day card?”

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.
