Him flying out there may be a consideration - although it would be terrible if he went and then didn't get to see her (possible) or got massively jerked around jumping through all kinds of demeaning hoops (very likely). I don't know if we can afford it, but we may look at the 3 of us going out for a week as a family. Even if he sees his daughter on his own, at least he'd have the reality check of being part of a less screwy situation (him + me + dd) in the big picture. We could also frame it in terms of a family holiday to see all our friends and family there, so we're not as emotionally invested in whether or not we get to see the kids. There's still the $$$ issue, but we could price it out. I wonder how we would talk about it with the 3 yo though - she knows that's the city her sibs live in.
