Dear Joseph and Lucia,
Another Christmas has come and gone. Your presents stayed under the tree. I’ve carefully stored them for next year. I try to stay strong and resolved in these actions, but I still tear up. I make sure they are kept in a place where I can see them when coming in and out of the house.
I’m getting more involved with other parents and children who have suffered from Parental Alienation. It helps me to understand what I suspect you are going through.
Let me say this… I am not “evil”. I have no designs or plans to kidnap you. I want you to have a healthy relationship with your mother. And most important, what ever allegations you were told I did aren’t true.
I have a happy home with a wonderful wife (your step-mum). I’ve helped raise 2 amazing girls who are headstrong and stubborn. I just hope that a reunion won’t be devastating to your mother. I’m not asking you to pick sides. The last thing I want is for you to feel alienated by either of us. Just know my love for you two is unconditional.
Just know I’m here. Waiting.
