Imagine being a single father, raising a daughter whose mother abandoned her at birth. Now, imagine your daughter having a severe accident, and you're faced with the decision of whether to inform her absentee mother or not. This is the heart-wrenching situation one dad found himself in. His daughter's mother, who had previously expressed her disinterest in motherhood, was furious when she found out about the accident from a mutual friend, not him. This has left our hero dad questioning his decision. 🤔💔

"NTA. Op, you're being far too nice. This woman is dangerous. People who fake cancer are not well. People who abandon their children and start new lives, are NOT WELL. This woman is very sick. Please understand that she may not actually be worried about your daughter. She may just want to be involved in the attention/drama of the car accident. If I was a gambling woman, I would place my bet on that, rather than that she was actually concerned/offended that she wasn't notified. Keep her away from you and your daughter. Nothing good will come of it. Good luck to you and F, Op."
