Abandoned in Paris
A daughter finds her father and changes both their lives forever.
Robert Dillard Lowry
"Abandoned in Paris" is a raw and candid look at how a father and daughter get to know one another after 35 years apart, across two continents and through two language barriers.
I got out of the army in 1968 after spending 18 months stationed in Germany. While there I lived with a French girl named Maryse who I loved and planned to bring to the U.S. She was also pregnant with my unborn child.
I became an alcoholic while in the military and when I returned to the states I continue to drink and neglect my responsibilities to send for Maryse. After a few months, I decided I should try to reach her and my now born little girl so I began to write letters. They were all returned to me with "No one here by that name" stamped on the envelope. I assumed they had moved or wanted nothing to do with me for my abandonment or both. I continued on with my life promising myself one day I would find her to see if she was alright.
Thirty five years later the dream became a reality; only it was her who found me! In February 2003 I received a letter that said "Mr. Robert Lowry I am looking for a man that has your name. I think you are my father."
This story is an adventure that changed my life as well as my family forever. The way I view the world and my culture will never be the same. She filled a hole in my heart that was empty for 35 years.
