Oh how I agree Dr.
Instead of feeling you have been placed lower on his list, try and look at it through different eyes. What a great man who has such love for his children. That is a man you want in your life and is something to respect and admire.
I would be more than concerened and a bit put off by a man who did not give his heart to his children.
You may have a very good one there, try and look at it through different eyes.
Do not put yourself in a position that you compete with his children. Your relationship with him is on an entirely different level.
