When we visit our family the mother is always on her way to work and the father stays with us as we help the kids. But the last few time we have visited the father will disappear when we get there. I dont know if they are beginning to trust us more or if the father i working more. But either way all of our time now is spent with the kids. I think it is a good sign either way. I think that the father is beginning to be more. I am really glad that our relationship is moving forward.
