It turned out to be a painful story. Maxime revealed that Claire’s biological father didn’t need to know anything about her and the pregnancy. He fled as soon as it became clear that Maxime would not have her child taken away. Once Claire was born, Maxime made several unsuccessful attempts to contact Jaap. To this day, he has not yet met his own daughter in real life.
Now there is a new development in the case. Jaap has reported to Maxime and wants to contact her and his daughter.
“I have to say that last month, at the end of October, he sent me an app for the first time in three years. “I’m ready to see Claire now.” he sent. ”
Maxime doesn’t know what to do with it. She tells Privé that the wounds are still open. “With that he suddenly puts the ball back to me, but I don’t know what to do with it at all. In the beginning he completely let me down, he even wanted me to have our daughter taken away and refused to be on the birth certificate. ”
Maxime and Claire are now a happy family with Leroy. The three of us are doing very well, says Maxime.
“Besides, I now have a very different, happy life with Leroy and Claire has started calling him daddy of her own accord. Leroy was beaming from ear to ear when he heard that and we’ve kept that up ever since. That duo is really two hands on one belly. If he’s gone for even a second, she immediately asks, ‘Where’s Daddy?’ ”
Maxime is in a dilemma and does not know what to do with Jaap’s sudden contact attempt.
“Should I suddenly start throwing that stable base upside down again because Jaap is finally ready? Or could it be because he now sees his daughter being raised by another man? I’d love to leave everything as it is, but I also don’t want to run into the moment when I have to tell Claire at a later age that I kept her real father away from her when he reconnected. I am in a difficult position and I am fed up with that. Why is Jaap doing this now? ”
