My Biggest Mistake of Them All
Excluding my past addiction, my biggest mistake was after my divorce wanting my children to have a relationship with their father. I did everything I could for him to spend time with them.
I didn't have a relationship with my father and didn't want my kids to go without one.
I went as far as to take him to court over it. The judge said "This is a first. It's always trying to keep the father away from the kids." He shook his head a little and said "I can't make him see the kids." My response was "I'm hoping if he gives his word to a judge he'll follow through with it." And he did just that. He started seeing the girls. For a little while. My mistake was he only gave them crumbs, which hurt more than no father at all.
