I Don't Hold Grudges With My Dad But I Don't Want Him To Be Present During My Wedding Ceremony

To have someone in your life is a dream come true for many of us. Life can be full of bliss and happiness but later turns out to be sour. Your happiness depends on how you live and create your life. My name is Araba and I'm 26 years old. I live with my uncle and sibling in the southern part of Accra. Immediately I completed senior high school, I become the talk of the town since many thought it was impossible for me to complete such stage. My uncle works as a fire service until his retirement and that alone made him instill a sense if discipline in us that I would forever cherish.

After school, I tried as much as possible to help my uncle fend for ourselves. Eventhough it was very difficult to have a three square meal, we never lose hope knowing the charcoal sellers daughter would someday wear white. I began to gawk through the market of Accra selling tomatoes and indeed I made good sales.

My uncle advice to apply civil service and I obliged without hesitation. I applied for Police and Fire Service but unfortunately, I was rejected by the police recruitment and enlisted in the fire service department. I went through clinicals and everything was done perfectly. After some few weeks, I passed out as a fire service personnel stationed in a neighboring locality.

Since the day I was born, I've never set my eyes on my biological father but I've been told he is still alive. He now claims paternity of I and my siblings when he heard I'm now a fire service personnel. A young man has asked for my hand in marriage and my family says he has to see my biological father.

I don't hold grudges with him but I don't want him to be present during my wedding ceremony eventhough I've forgiven him. I'm really confused and I don't know what to do.
