Did you end up telling your mum about you contacting your dad? Did everything go well after he replied to your message?

Please don't feel depressed. It's better late than to never contact him and then regret it later on in life. It's a really big step and a very independent move to go out of your way to contacting you dad! Think how much you'll achieve now you chose to do this and without any help from anyone else! If I were in that position I doubt I'd have had the courage. What you've done is an accomplishment!

Life is for living, not for losing.

If your father is a decent man, then he will understand why you didn't contact him sooner. He has essentially been a stranger to you, so why would you rush into his arms? You needed time to process everything and weigh the pros/cons. If your father isn't understanding of all that, then maybe he's not really worth talking to.

Feel free to keep us updated on your situation!

its understandable your scared, my advice since having divorced parents, is wait to inform your mom, sometimes if divorces end badly she'll tell you things about your father that may be exaggerated or twisted, to get you totake her side and not his. this may not be the case but either way talk to him first, get to know him, find out his side about the divorce, the fact that he contacted you is a big brave step for him, and the fact he didnt back down after years shows he really wants to get to know you, so try not to shun him too harshly for not being there those years before, good luck, and try to keep an open unbiased mind!
