My daughter lives with her father. Not her choice and not mine. A judge decided my daughter should stay in the house she's been since her birth. Now I only get her every other weekend. It is painful to be separated from your child.
Two weeks is a long time to not see your 6 year old. I try to talk to her everyday but there are difficulties in dealing with her father. Oh, and her father's girlfriend. She is living large in my home, referring to my child as her own. It is painful to have someone else declare your child as theirs.
What would have been 8 years of marriage passed on Tuesday. I'm still married to him and can't afford the cost of fighting him for divorce and custody. It is painful to realize how little you meant in someone's life.
I miss her and it is physically painful at times. At least it is temporary and someday she will live where she wishes.
