Overview

Ever wonder why there are some kids men take care of while not their own? Ever wonder why there are so many deadbeat fathers and why and how this cycle continues? Men don’t intentionally decide that one day I’m going to grow up and not take care of my children. They start off as little boys missing and wishing that they had a father in their lives; taking interest in them. However what happens to them between the then and now? What changes their basic nature making them run away from responsibility; running away from their children?

Jacob Ellis was a young man just growing up and living his life. He wasn’t thinking or ready to become a father when he started dating Marla Townsend. Both of them were in college and in his mind they were only “casually” dating- not serious. So when she got pregnant and he had decided that he was moving on with someone else what happens to the son that he leaves behind?
Jayden Eric Townsend didn’t think he had been missing anything. Ever since he could remember it had only been just the two of them- mom and him. Ever since he could remember he always had a roof over his head, food in his belly and the love of his parent. Then kindergarten happened to him and he was soon schooled that not everybody only lived with a mommy; but there were some kids who even had a daddy too.

“Mom what’s a daddy and why don’t I have one?”
