Almost Divorced With 2 Children
though i do not have primary custody i consider myself very much a father. i involve myself in my childrens' lives as much as possible. i still direct their growth as persons. i give all the love i have and make sure they know it.
i am devastated that i am no longer a part of their daily lives. that i've lost the privilege to watch and participate in every new experience. i raised my children for 8 1/2 years. i tucked them in every night. my son is my shadow. my daughter and i have a connection that only a father/daughter could appreciate. i am heart-broken but i hide it from them so they can grow up as secure and carefree as possible.
i listened to good advice and never, ever run down their mother to them. i do the opposite, i continually build her up even while she is hurting me in the worst possible way - doing everything she possibly can to alienate me from them.
my children are twin boy and girl, 9 years old. they are my life.
