Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: Who’s the father? Good morning, Where do I begin? Six years ago I started a relationship with a guy that I went to high school with and we had a child together. He was in her life until she turned four months. After that he was no where to be found! So I moved on with my life. I started dating the person that I’m with now. In the beginning he knew that I had a child but had never seen her because I didn’t know how long we were going to be with each other. Well it has been five years now and the man in my life takes care of her as if she is his own. We also share a child. Now after all these years my daughter’s real father wants to come back into her life. What do I do? My moms says that I should let him at least come and see her, but I don’t think that he should.
