Children, lost to me
Family includes children
We were married 10+ years and had children together.
My son was first born of seven generations.
First years of marriage were good.
She has gone, 15+ years ago and I feel good about that.
We arranged that I could see my children. Agreed in Court.
She took them to another country. Their ages 3 to 9.
She prevented visits for now more than 15 years.
Laws are difficult. She behaved selfishly.
Other men have spent $100,000 to $800,000 Family Court costs to see their children as they are legally entitled. I do not need to spend money to show her for what she is.
My children have been away for so long that they are no longer mine. They are hers, they are adults. No word of them in 10+ years.
There is no way I would be able to meet them again.
I could not do it. The emotional trauma would destroy me.
So much better to move on.
I married again and we have a son.
She is more wife than the first one ever was or could be.
(but I live in the present without caring for the future)
He is my son, and I am happy with him.
