Today, my Dad sent me an e-mail wishing me a "Happy 21st Birthday, sweetheart!" The message went on and on about how much he loves and misses me and wishes we were closer, and can't believe how fast I'm growing up. I'm 23 and my birthday is in December. FML

I really don't see how "his heart is in the right place". Forgetting her exact age - ok that might happen, though 21 is a kinda important birthday, he should have remembered that she has already passed that. Forgetting the day and month of her birth ... after presumably 23 birthday celebrations ... I don't see how that's possible unless he hasn't cared at all during her entire childhood. And that would make this message the expression of regret of a deadbeat loser. The kind of person who now feels sorry for *themselves* because they don't have a good relationship with their kids, but has never made the effort required to have one, and never will.

I have a daughter, there is no way I'd ever forget the night she was born, absolutely no way.

Clearly, he understated his lament regarding being able to believe how fast you're "growing up".
FYL. I know the feeling; sucks when your parents have erroneous information regarding you... particularly when it's legally documented... and I would think they knew for tax purposes at the very least at one point... not to mention the whole wow-I'm-your-child-really? thing.
But in the *end* it's the heart that matters. His was in the right place, if not time:-p

while #4 may be right... this might've just been his attempt at trying to get to back into your life maybe? he was way off, but maybe it was his way of taking baby steps back into your life and actually trying to get closer to you?

but still.... FYL

"Most dads" are not like that. And I'm sorry your father walked out on you, but the doesn't mean OP doesn't have somethings to complain about. Is she supposed to be happy he was off by 2 years and got the birthdate wrong?
