For many of you Father’s Day was an incredibly sad day. On a day when you are supposed to be celebrated you were ignored or at worse maligned. It is not a day in which you celebrate fatherhood but one which has become a reminder of injustices in the family court system and the evil that seems to be taking over.
I have witnessed the pain that Rick goes through on Father’s Day for the last 11 years. He wakes up with an extremely heavy heart and a sadness that just won’t go away. We go to church where fathers are acknowledged and honored, then usually do something special to celebrate what an awesome father he is. But without his boys in his life the celebrations are often empty and have very little meaning. At times he wishes the day would just disappear off the calendar. The sad reality is that Rick is not the only one who feels this way.
Here’s what a few of my Facebook friends posted on Father’s Day.
“It had been a harsh Father’s Day for me & many daddys deprived of our children by Family Courts. We “target parents” are often hit so badly that we often feel like giving up…”
“hard to focus on much today….”
“I am a father. Not a deadbeat, not a coward, not a man that runs away from being a father, or a deserter of my own flesh and blood. Not a sperm donor or a court appointed ATM, but a Father in the purest form of the word.”
If you have not been able to be apart of your child’s life this Father’s Day because of Parental Alienation we are sorry and want to wish you the best. We know and understand your pain and we are standing with you on this journey. God Bless You — Barb
