Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – May 24, 2014

My daughter, Caitlin graduates from high school this week. I’m so proud of all the accomplishments my daughter has made with her life and for her future, but I can’t help feeling sick and disgusted about missing out on so much of her life, so many important events, so many more to come. I am the prime example of a dead beat dad. I take responsibility for all of my shortcomings, I’ve forgiven myself for all my sins and crimes against others and I work hard every day to secure a better future for myself and my children, but that doesn’t change the fact that Caitlin will be receiving her diploma in a fatherless crowd of people, she will always remember the plethora of events that her father was absent for and that continues to crush my sober heart.
