I am a 51 year old father of a 6 year old girl and 10 year old boy. We are nearing the completion of the divorce process. I cannot get beyond the pain of not being with my children day in and day out. Being a father is the one thing I wanted more than anything out of my marriage and now, being the non custodial parent has left me with a gaping hole in my heart once filled by my familial role as a father. I can't even imagine the pain ever going away. How does any parent, who loves their children as much as I do, find the strength to go on?
