I just lost both my daughters to not only their father, but my abuser. I wasn't "allowed" to stand up for the girls or myself. He and his lawyer used crazy making in court. My daughters are subjected to his manipulation and absolute control. Why can't they think for themselves? Why can't I tell them that their father is abusing their boundaries that will set them up for healthy relationships in their future? How can a Judge tell me that she has been on the bench for 20 years and not come back and see that I was the one honestly fighting for their rights? Laws have to change, our attitude towards victims MUST change and we need to teach our children more about not only physical safety, but mental safety. I played by the "book" and jumped through all the hoops the courts asked me to do, WITH PROOF IN WRITING. The abuser didn't, he used his daughters to his own means and won custody. The courts were my last option, CPS wouldn't do a thing, oldest daughter lied to them and I have PROOF of that in her own hand. Her voice is silent and she is in danger. My youngest daughter is emotionally vulnerable and only desires to have a relationship with a father that didn't treat her well, so when she started getting groomed, she was set up to swallow the whole sword. This is real people, STAND UP!
