Customer Question

I have guardianship of 2 girls ages 10 and 12. I have had the since they were 4 and 6. The has had little to no contact with them. We had always encouraged him to at least call. He had not seen them for almost 3 years when he was invited to their 9 and 11 birthday party. They did not even know what he looked like they had to ask. Again I encouraged phone calls. So far no calls. The youngest was so truamatised by actions at the party that she wet the bed for a week. I feel that physical contact with them at this time would be harmful to their mental health.
