No. I grew up only with my mum. My mother was engaged to a man around the time I was conceived, and I grew up with being told this man was my father but for reasons unknown he did not want anything to do with me. After years of me pestering and hearing different stories about the identity of my biological father, my mother finally admitted that her fiance at that time was indeed not my father and it could in fact be one of a few men. This is a factoring reason as to why my mother and I are now estranged.
My Mother did all the looking after me, and my Father came home now and then....I did not see much of my Father at all, but the war had ended 9 years and most of the men, who went to war never came back the same.
I never resented my Father, I knew from a young age....he was not well, and so when he was around I just loved him very much.
My Mother was understanding also, we made the best of a sad situation.
