Dear Dad is based on a true story.
For 18 years my mother lied to me about who my biological father was. When I was finally told, I was put into a tail spin.
This is the story of my struggle to find my real father and the truth of where I came from.
Everything you want to say but happening the moment when you realize it has become to late.
Dear Dad is written in an open letter format that follows the passage of “If the grass is greener it just might be AstroTurf”.
This is not the first piece I’ve read by Andrews. The first piece was titled I am Terry Walker and I left it unrated. So when I was approached I was hesitant. I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t leave I am Terry Walker unrated because it was poorly written I left it that way because it wasn’t my taste of work.
This was 100% the complete opposite.
Dear Dad is a very heartfelt piece. A difficult piece because even though the writing is very simplistic it speaks volumes. So much takes place within the letter written to her late Father that it will literally leave you in a twisted state of emotions.
I urge you to take the time to read Dear Dad.
