A very sad example of the tragic abuses of child psychological abuse .
The alienation started when my daughter was born. I wasn’t allowed to ever have her overnight. When she was 4 she told me that mommy said you’re not my dad while we were driving in the car. When her mom’s second marriage was ending in divorce her husband told me that my daughter’s mom would lie about my daughter being available for visits. She lied to the court about me paying child support, and told them I was selling drugs. Another lie. My daughter was appointed a court attorney that sided with her mom. I was told by my daughter’s attorney to send her texts of funny cat videos as a way to connect with her. I was ordered to pay the attorney fee. My daughter became more despondent. She became afraid of me because of what my ex was feeding her. My family would send cards and gifts with zero response. The last meaningful visit I had with my daughter was when she was 9 yo. I had brief text exchanges with my daughter in the following years. Sending her money for Christmas, and birthdays(child support aside). My last communication with her was right before her 18th birthday. I was told by most of family and friends that she would come around, and to be patient. Which I fully held out hope for. June 23rd of this year my daughter passed away. I am devastated. My anger towards her mother is something I’ll be dealing with for the rest of my life.
Please never give up, and don’t wait for them to “come around”.
