My father abandoned our family when I was 6 years old. I am now grown, in college, and he has come around now that the pressure is off. He wants to establish a relationship with me, but I do not even know him. Does it seem kind of phony to now go ahead with this?

It is never too late to forgive.  You see your father’s mistakes.  I think that he sees them, too.  You surely have a right to your anger.  At the same time, you could give your father a huge gift of mercy and aid your own emotional healing if you have mercy on him and forgiveness.  It will take a strong will and courage for you to do this.  You will know if and when you are ready.
