AN EXCERPT FROM LAURIE:

I was a loving and devoted wife to my Alienator. I was a terrific mom. NOT A PERFECT MOM, but a terrific mom., as my children were my world. From the day, each of them were born, THEY WERE MY EVERYTHING.  I was fully dedicated to their lives. Being a mother was not a job, it was A GIFT. Being a mother to my children was a privilege. I was completely involved in their lives, emotionally, educationally and socially. I did everything with them and went everywhere with them. I found myself overcompensating for Alienator’s behavior, daily. Being a mother was my world. Alienator soon became jealous of our own children. I came to the realization, I, nor these children, deserved the abuse, and left. Our children were soon, used as weapons. I knew something was wrong, but I did not know there was a definitive word for it. I went through the name calling, disrespect, the continuous texting/calling of the children when they were with me. I went through the destruction of items I purchased or sent. I went through having my name omitted from all office or emergency forms.  I went through the manipulation, blatant disregard of any and all court orders. I went through the defamation of character, slander, stalking, harassing, intimidation, obstruction, denial. The harder I tried to stick to the custody agreement and co parent, the worse the situation got. The years of legal abuse to the point of getting anxiety attacks by simply going to the mailbox. Physically ill and traumatized when I had to go to court. Little did I know, there was a plan to remove them from me, one per year on special occasions. My parental authority was taken from me. Normal parental discipline was used against me. The children were manipulated to believe I was a horrible person and soon became disrespectful, hateful and defiant. Behaviors that were completely uncharacteristic of them. The sweet loving children, were no longer the children I had raised. I could no longer protect them from this evil. All three children succumbed to his manipulation. Life, as I knew it, was forever changed. The hardest obstacle was trying to explain this to the outside world. I went to therapists to be told “ I was strong” and “I don’t know how you do it”, which certainly was no help to me. I wrote my pain out into words through poetry. But every day I was missing my children, days grew darker, the hole of depression deeper. I knew I had to do something. I was out of tears, as the triggers were continuous. I would end up in a sobbing ball on the floor if I heard a song, opened their doors, found a picture, saw a bus go by, pumped gas to their birth year, cooked a certain meal…the triggers were endless. I knew I could no longer function this way. Only I, could change things.  I decided to take my negative energy to help others. I started alone, in late April. I currently have 30+ parents and grandparents in our group. I saturate as many agencies and professionals with education and awareness. I hold meetings at my home. We support the other targeted parents and grandparents going through this living hell. I am planning a conference here in Erie, PA. The first ever conference regarding Parental Alienation. I am doing a lot of ”firsts” in my life. I am overcoming many of my fears. I am a firm believe in, everything happens for a reason. I still have not figured out the reason my children were alienated from me. But I do know, I am continually growing stronger. I am stronger for me, the family I have left, for my children when they return and for all the targeted families going through this HELL.

 

DON’T EVER GIVE UP! Stay STRONG!

 

TO MY BABIES- I LOVE EACH OF YOU, TO THE MOON AND BACK, A TRILLION TIMES.

 

I am always here. I never left. My arms will forever be longing to hold and hug you again. Love, MOM
