I feel so hopeless, sometimes I feel like not visiting my dad’s family for good

I feel so hopeless. Sometimes I feel like not visiting my dad’s family for good.

I have two siblings whom my dad had during his early 20s. I managed to meet all of them after my dad kept on making excuses for not introducing me to them.

And they complain he only cares about his three kids born within his marriage.

Should I accept the fact I’m not part of his life?

Sis Dolly answers 

No one wants to be fatherless, especially if their father is alive.

You seem to have done all you can to fit into your father’s life but his actions show he’s content with what he has and you are not part of that.

I suggest you and your siblings try one last time to tell your father you need him in your lives, through a mediator, before you give up.
