Please pray for all moms & their kids who are missing out on birthdays — on each other’s life. Share the truth: Many loving moms are also missing their kids who are taught to devalue them because of an abusive ex-husband’s desire for control & possession.

Today is the best and yet also the saddest day of my life. It is my daughter’s birthday. The best day because my only child, my beautiful daughter, was born today. The saddest day because I do not get to spend her birthday with her again. I avoid her Facebook page because it hurts me to see that she has spent her birthday weekend with a father who was never there for her in the past and a brand new step-family instead of me – the mother who raised her alone since birth for the first 11 years of her life. I sent her numerous messages via ooVoo and Facebook over the weekend but no response. I tried calling her today and also sending more messages and texts but still no response. I still cannot believe that it has now been almost 18 months since my beautiful daughter was kidnapped out of school by her father and his brand new wife. It does not even seem real to me that something like this could happen. 18 months that I have now been grieving daily for the loss of my daughter in my life, berated and raked over the coals by a biased Judge, alienated from my child by a spiteful ex-husband and his new wife (who seems abnormally invested in alienating my daughter from me), begging lawyers to help me fight for my only child and abused in general by a corrupt and horribly flawed family court system. Sometimes, I don’t even know how I am still standing. There are days I could not even get out of bed from the sadness and grief. There are still days that I can’t even imagine a life without my daughter in it and I just don’t know how to move forward. Going from full time mom for 11 years to nothing literally overnight has been intolerable. It took me a year before I could even drive past a Dollar Tree store (one of my daughter’s favorite stores) without bursting into tears. PTSD? I have not been able to spend her last 2 birthdays with her and it truly breaks my heart. I could have never in a million years imagined 18 months ago that this would be my life right now. I miss planning her fun birthday parties and spending time with her and her friends. I can never replace the time that has been stolen from us. The happy memories that have been stolen from us. The close and loving mother / daughter relationship that has been stolen from us. Today, I pray that she has a happy day and is safe and healthy. I pray that she knows how much I love her and miss her. I pray that she loves me and misses me too. In my eyes, she will always be that 3 pound 6 ounce little preemie baby that I brought home from the hospital the minute she hit 4 pounds. My little peanut. My little angel. My girl. Happy Birthday K. Your mama loves you and misses you terribly <3
