It's time for a script change.
I am thinking of embracing the notion that my donor dad is it. Wouldn't that be the ultimate mind trick? Poof. With a little wordsmithing, I could eradicate that whole pesky legacy of my "father" rejecting me. I could just be a kid who had a mom who found some sperm and had a baby. She had a husband and when she died, she let that man take care of her babies for a while until they wised up and left.
Even writing that last sentence sets me in a different frame of mind.
