Getting Fit – Week 2

Dear Dad,

Funny how, though you’re my birth father, and my adoptive father and I have a million and one issues, you’re still “Dad #2”.  Why is that, I wonder?

What’s odd is that I can’t bring myself to hate you.  I’ve heard stories, and logic says at least some of them are true, but stories or no, I can’t preach innocence until guilt is proven without allowing you the same privilege.

Was it that you didn’t think they’d agree to more, or just that I wasn’t worth more to you?
