I'm Margaret (33). I have an ex. He is the father of my oldest daughters. I am currently married to a (most of the time) great guy Don(39). My kids are 14, 12,(with my ex) and 5 and 18 months with Don. I just went through an ugly custody battle with my ex. My girls thought the grass is greener. They live with their dad now. We have on going issues. It would be nice to talk to women going through what I am going through.
I am pretty sure there are a couple gals who post here from time to time that might be in the same situation as you (ex having custody). I have sole custody of my 4 children, so unfortunately I do not know what things are like for you on a personal level such as that, but you are welcome to the forums any time
Welcome to the board! I'm Dani, the host here. I'm married to Tom and between us we have 7 kids/stepkids. I think you will find that even though most of us aren't experiencing the loss of custody, we still understand what you're going through. Parenting under the best of circumstances isn't easy. When there is divorce, custody issues, step-parents, etc...well it can add to the mountain of issues! You might also join the step-parenting board (Blended Families). The ladies on that board are great at helping on the blended side too! (and they're just a great bunch of women!)
I have a step- daughter too. She's being raised by her grandparents (my husbands parents). They haven't met my son or seen Mali since she was 3. We had custody for years but once my current husband & I got married in 2001; they started filling her head with garbage! They told that her dad didn't love her anymore because he was with me. I have just had a horribe 9 years. Its just been one battle after the other. Thanks for the support.
