    just lost my son and feel like dying inside

    I'm new here.  My son just cut me out of his life a few days ago and i feel as though I can just die.  I have no joy anymore, and am crying all day every day.  He wont' talk to me or see me and he wont come home.  This is a very complicated story but his biological father is behind it all and is telling him lies and is about to meet him for the first time in 19 years and so my son told me to...

    New here, unfortunately. Need your advice...

    Without any real warning or event, my 31-year old son has "stepped away" from our family. Says he has been an angry, frustrated person for the past 2 years and "turns out, it all stems from my parent's divorce" which was 20 years ago. He has been in a long-term, living-together relationship with his girlfriend of 8 years. He has a newer career in welding (2 years) and I helped him to buy his...

    Can a mother take a child??

    I don't know where to start. I'll leave this simple. Does anyone know if it is legal for a mother to take a child out of state and drop all contact between the father and child? A little back story, we weren't married when the child was born but married two years after. I did sign the birth certificate. She left one day with the child when the child was three and I have not heard a word from her...

    I miss my kid

    My daughter cut me off of her life 6 months ago becuase of her boyfriend. I don't deserve this and I don't know how to get past it.  I feel empty.  She was my everything and I don't know what else to do.  I have tried to speak to her a million times but she blocked me out of everything.   I am so depressed and sad all the time.  I feel like I can't go on anymore, it hurts so much.  I want...

    Eleven Years Out . . .

    My story is toooo long to give you the whole thing, but after I divorced my son's father (my son was 18) his anger was unbelievable.  He stopped all contact with me, anytime I DID find him and try to talk to him it was painfully ugly.   I became physically and mentally ill over this.    I know the pain you all are in, and I am so sorry.   No one should ever have to feel this.    He ignored...

    Exhausting Day

    I took a PTO day off work today to meet with my therapist, Josh Coleman who specializes in parent adult child estrangement. When I arrived early 35 miles from my home, I stopped at a coffee shop to pass the time until my 11am appointment. As I sat in the waiting room, I had every intention of not crying. I had dressed, put on my makeup, I had it down. What I wanted to say, how we were going to...

    My Children Have Rejected Me - Why?

    I raised my children as a single mom, and I was always there for them.  I had to divorce their father because he had taken up crawling into bed with our daughter, and refused to stop when I told him to. He was on his way to ruining her life, and setting her for a lifetime and trauma, and I had to stop him.  Because of the divorce, I knew and felt my children were at risk, and so I chose to put...

    I am so heart broken.  I raised my 2 children & protected them.  I kept from them why their dad left them 3 times.  I remarried a wonderful caring Man that he still thinks  the world of my kids.  2 years ago, my son met a girl.  She was sweet at the time until she got a ring on her finger.  I was "Momma Mary" until she got the ring.  Then things went SOUTH!  A month before my sons...

    What happened to this group?

    Forgive me as I was a long time reader of the posts from this group.  I haven't logged in for a few weeks and the site has changed!  Are the same people here?  I actually had to join to get in and I don't see familiar names.  Is there a trick to this that you can share?
