April commented on one of our Facebook posts saying that she had to leave the room after the scene with Maya and her dad talking outside of Topanga’s Bakery. She said that it impacted her so much that she ended up calling her dad to talk more about things that she thought she had gotten past. I messaged her and asked her if she could share her story and how the episode impacted her. I think that Matt, Sabrina, David, Ben, and the writers would really love to know this. Thank you April for allowing us to share your story with the fans! Check out her story below:
Hi there! I was asked to share my story and how it impacted me with their latest episode. First, I want to say that Sabrina deserves an Emmy for that performance, just wow! But here it goes…
For a brief backstory, my parents divorced when I was around five and I would continue to see him here and there and then my last visit I had with him was him dropping me back home and saying something that shouldn’t ever be said to a child. Bring in roughly 7 years of absolutely no contact and a child that wondered what they did wrong all those years. My dad came back into the picture when I was around 12 and the relationship took many years to rebuild. Even after 10 years of my parents remarrying(isn’t that amazing!?!), I never realized the questions that I still had.
This story line impacted me in ways I never expected. It was so profound that I had to walk out midway because I was bawling like a baby and didn’t want my daughters to see it and ask questions. Because of this episode it brought back many many feelings that I now had the courage to talk to my dad and have asked the remaining questions to let myself heal. I want to thank the writers and actors, job well done! Seeing the look in Sabrina’s eyes and they way she did that scene, I saw myself to a T. If it wasn’t for how powerful this episode was and the amazing acting done by all, I don’t know if I would’ve ever had the courage to ask the remaining question I hadn’t known I needed answered and that was, why did you choose to stay away. While I fully respect his answer, it still hurt to hear but I love my dad and have found forgiveness in myself and him that I didn’t even know I needed.
