I Haven't Seen My Son Or Daughter In A YearI always had a great relationship with my kids. Growing up, I wanted to be a father. One who took the kids
camping, fishing, to movies, went too all their recitals, games, you know, really involved.
My ex and I divorced 10 years ago, but I remained extremely close to my 2 kids. Than, she found a live in
boyfriend. He began slowly with remarks like, gee, your dad doesn't make as much money as me, or some
of your friends fathers. Three years later, he has my children convinced I don't really love them because I
can't afford all the luxeries in life. Mom tells the kids I cheat her on her child support, even though I've never
missed a payment in 10 years.
Since, HE entered into the picture, my relationship with my daughter, (16), began to deteriorate, and finally he has convinced
my son, (12) somehow that I am not a caring man, because I don't give him the same things he can afford to give him.
Basically, he bought my children, made my ex the victim, and martyr, and now, I haven't seen my son in a year
It is literally killing me. I love my children with every fiber of my being. I've tried e mailing, & calling, but everything gets
intercepted. My son has not received one message from me.
I've been to every ball game, and event my kids were ever in. We did everything together. Now, I've missed out
on everthing, and I have no idea how all of this will turn out.
I currently have a lawyer, and he's told me he can get this straightened out. It's hard knowing however that the son,
and daughter who I've spent so much time laughing with, and raising, now don't want to see me.
I'm so depressed, I sometimes don't want to wake up to a new day. I miss them beyond ex
