How would you feel if your daughter suddenly got pregnant by someone who doesn’t love her? What would you do? Of course, fathers will do whatever it takes to protect their daughters and hold them accountable.
This father shared this story about his then 17-year-old daughter getting pregnant.I am the general manager of a car dealership. My daughter is 17 years old. He always went to parties because he had many friends.
At that party, she met the guy who made her pregnant. After we found out, he didn’t tell us who his father was.One day I was sitting outside my house and I noticed a guy walking around outside our house.
Soon the guy came up. My daughter’s name is Stacey. The guy came up to me and said, ‘Are you Stacey’s father?’ may I sit down?’
He said he was an 18-year-old boy who had just graduated from high school and he didn’t have anything decided yet. Then he said, ‘I understand that Stacey is pregnant.’
I replied, ‘I know. What do you do?’ I looked at him and said, ‘What kind of work do you want to do at my dealership?’ He said, ‘I want to sell cars, I want to be a salesperson.
I heard you don’t need a degree to do this job. If I’m willing to work long and hard, I can make good money.’I nodded and said, ‘Yes you can.’ I then said, ‘Now my son, you have made my daughter pregnant when she does not love you.
Can you make him happy?” Then he said, ‘I will try to love my child as much as I can and love his mother as well.’
Dad: I want you to be at my dealership tomorrow at 8:00 a.m., Sunday, when it’s the best crowd, okay? The boy said, ‘Yes, sir.’ I said, ‘Go now, see you tomorrow.’
He shares custody with my daughter. Now, I’m not saying he hasn’t made mistakes, but I’m not saying their situation is ideal.
But what can I say, I admire the man for taking responsibility and being a real father. I know there are many men who would not do the same.
