I'm praying someone might know anyone w/the last name- Morton. Specifically, the name Franklin Hampton Morton. He was born July 14, 1951 & he's my Father. He & my mom Sandra Kay Miller Morton were married for 11yr's & got divorced when I was about 3 1/2 yr's old (aprox 1982'-83'). We initially lived in AIKEN, SC. The ONLY contact I've had w/him since was @ age 11-12. 1 visit XMAS of 91' for 3 days. He came to MO to see me. Next, my mom took me to Aiken to see him the summer of 92'. I got to see where I was born (Augusta, GA), where we lived, etc. We spent 3 days @ Myrtle Beach also. I haven't seen or heard from him since. I'll be 30yr's old on November 11th & think about him everyday. I dont blame him @ all for leaving. I know the truth behind all of it & it wasn't his fault it was my moms. She's addmitted it to me finally! I need to know him, more then anyone can imagine! I'm married & have 2 children of my own that I really want him to know. There's not a day goes by I dont think about him & cry. I want so desperately to know anything I can. PLEASE PLEASE from the bottom of my heart help me if you can. I'd do anything to just see him or speak to him at least 1 more time before I die. It scares me everyday to think he may have passed away & I wouldn't even know. As far as I know he doesn't have anymore children, he has a brother who lived in the ANDERSON, SC area who has a son that would be 40 or so now. my grandfathers name was Ferman Morton & he has passed away I imagine. My father was in the Military. He was stationed somewhere w/my Uncle Jimmy Miller in late 60's early 70's. He met my mom when my Uncle brought him home to Cape Girardeau, Missouri for a holiday. I've lived here in Southeast Missouri since age 3. If anyone knows anything, I'm begging. I've wrote countless talk shows, websites, etc.. for help & get nothing. I know of a women who babysat me when I was little that I'm sure still lives in the area. She had 2 sons a little older then me. I think we lived in the same neighborhood or something. We lived in a trailer & so did she. Her & my mom were friends. I have pics of my 2yr birthday @ some icecream shop there w/her boys also. Well, thanks in advance for any help anyone can give. I really just want to know that my daddy is alive & well. I forgot to mention that I got a call @ my grandma Mabel Millers house in 2002 from a women that he'd been w/for several yr's. She told me he thought about me constantly but they were no longer together. She found my grandmas # in his things & decided to call to tell me he was living in Virginia @ that time. However I dont think he would still be there. I'm afraid I wont ever find him because maybe he's scared of being arrested or something. He never paid ANY child support what so ever, as far as I was told by my mom (who's lied to me ALOT). I dont know if that's true & I dont care about any money! I just care about knowing him & vice versa.
