I never had this (see photo above) either, and I'll bet not many of us did. My dad died when I was a toddler, my mom was distant and never re-married--no wonder I made such an enticing target for that perv.

But at this point, wishing my life was now very different is like wishing I didn't have my wife and kids, who are the greatest joys in my life.
