Here are a couple of pictures of Rickilee, her older sister, and mother. Her and her sister have separate dads. Shelley, Rickilee's mom, dated Rickilees dad for two years. The two separated due to the news that he was going to be a father to a kid he didn't want to care for. Rickilee has never seen her father, but knows his name and that he used to be a doctor. Here is my interview with Rickilee in a summary.
Some of her friends and most of her classmates had both parents in their lives to refer too, even her sister had some type of father-daughter relationship, that Rickilee dreamed to have. Her mom struggled to work to support her two kids, so she left her eldest daughter to watch over Rickilee, so she can work. In this case, Rickilee initially wanted to have that father figure to help support the family and to have someone she can bond with. Growing up the closet relationship she had with her father was him paying for child support and her health insurance. However, the two have never met, and he has never tried to contact her or Rickilees mother. With this Rickilee questioned why her fathers failed to communicate with her with him knowing when she was ill. Rickileee has questioned her mother about why things didn't work out between the two parents, and she claims her father was immature, and selfish. One year after the separation Rickilee's dad got married, and in some ways hearing about his marriage upset Rickilee. However, Rickilee then realizes that if the two stayed together the relationship between the two adults would have been an unhealthy. Rickilee till this day has so many questions to ask her dad, even questions her to ask her mother because she feels like she is missing half of herself. However, a part of Rickilee is afraid to know the truth behind her questions.
