My child used to be a good father and spouse, but these days he doesn’t spend time with his kids and betrays his partner. After my grandson was born with Down syndrome, Mike destroyed his connection with Tommy’s mother, Jane. He was gone from then on out. I discovered that he is getting married again.
I understand that mothers are supposed to encourage and uplift their children. I wholeheartedly agree. Moreover, for that reason, I acknowledge that my actions were legal.
This is the beginning of the story. My son, Mike, got married when he was very young because his then-girlfriend, Jane, became pregnant. It was rushed, but I had respected Jane since the day I met her. She was just another young woman in the neighborhood, and I loved that about Mike.
My most treasured grandchild, Tommy, was conceived a few months after the incident! He had the most beautiful blue eyes I had ever seen and was born with Down syndrome. However, Tommy’s birth with Down syndrome had a profound impact on Mike and Jane. Mike started to undermine her, and he ultimately filed for legal separation despite their child and offer past.
Mike went to spend more time with Tommy alone, just Jane. Of course, I remained close by and would stop at nothing to assist them both. It wasn’t anything similar, though. Given that the two guardians are still alive and content, the child requires their presence.
But Mike made no attempt to see his child or offer any kind of assistance with the outing. How my child could be so persistent was beyond me.
I pleaded with him to come back, or at least to look after Jane. Either way, he closed the door in front of me every single time.
And that’s when things start to become interesting.
As the designated family cook, I was approached by my nephew Liam last month to get a cake for his mother. Additionally, he informed me that Mike was getting married again.
I was astounded.
Actually, I didn’t really know Mike all that well these days. I had no idea who he was dating or anything about his new job. Now all I could think of was that Mike had found a poor young woman to marry. Moreover, the fact that I wasn’t accepted. When I asked Liam where it was, he gave me a clear answer.
Jane and Tommy were all that was on my mind. When did Mike become this other kind of man?
Let’s fast-forward to the nuptials.
As I walked up the assembly, I heard Mike’s voice as he made his promises. With Tommy’s sticky hands in my hair, I strolled about with him on my hip. I will always find the entire shock to be quite beneficial.
“Michael St. John, meet your first ‘I did’ and the family you abandoned before you say, ‘I do,’ again,” I remarked.
I took care of his unfortunate life mate. She was a cute little child, and I felt terrible that I was the reason for her general troubled appearance.
The officiant then declared that a break was necessary and asked the guests to go outside and have something to drink before the event resumed. That was fine with me. I would have preferred not to hurt Mike’s wife more than was necessary, no matter how much I needed to shame him. Still, there weren’t many people left. While his woman of the hour’s family could not contain their amazement, the majority of Mike’s family found me amusing.
I revealed everything, including how he married young, had Tommy, betrayed Jane, and eventually split up with her with hardly any money to support his child. I warned her about what she was about to embark onto.
Mike was pacing behind her when I said to her, “He might be my blood, but I didn’t raise him to be this way.” Right now, I consider Jane to be more of a girl than Mike is a child.
Tommy, my tiny grandson who filled my heart with so much love, chewed his thumb and I cuddled him closer to me.
“Your child deserves a father who sticks by him.” Mike, you are awful. Moreover, such a different person from the amazing child I reared and loved beyond everything else.
I walked out, leaving a room full of stunned guests, a shocked child, and his life partner second-guessing the man she fell in love with.
Liam and his mother (my sister) stopped by for cappuccino the next day.
Liam stated that when the church doors closed behind Tommy and me, Mike’s life partner started crying. He claimed that after throwing her bridal bouquet at Mike, taking off her shoes, and leaving the ceremony, her family went after her.
Mike was in front of the guests, who were glued to their seats, probably hoping Jane would arrive, and he felt degraded, furious, and dumbfounded.
I understand that it would seem a bit drastic to ruin his wedding. I’ll just say it. But the whole point of it was to present Mike with an important example.
He can still make things perfect for Tommy, therefore it’s not over for him. When Mike returns to our family as a parent and a child, I’m here for him. Conversely, if it proves to be too much for him, I’ll live with him taking on some degree of ownership over Tommy in some way.
You tell me, though: Am I right to ruin my child’s wedding? If that’s the case, I appreciate your understanding.
What could you do in my position if not?While contemplating that, allow me to share one more tale with you: Unknown messages warn Jane not to marry Anthony as she is getting ready to do so. When she eventually pursues a fruitless hunt to a nearby hotel, she discovers the reason behind the warnings.
