Working out while your heart breaks
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
A week ago my grandson's birth father picked him up from our home, (since littlest man lives here) and has not returned him. We have filed an emergency custody order against both our daughter and this man. He has no legal rights to the boy and no official parenting time. The police in his city will not help. Instead of his proving he can keep our littlest man, we (including our daughter the only legal parent) have to prove he can't. This is not how it should be.
Our daughter knows she has failed. She understands our keeping this little boy is in everyone's best interest, and has signed legal paper saying such. We are already the legal parents of her first born son.
Every night I go to bed without this little boy. My son asks everyday when his brother will be home. My heart is breaking. I've been praying and trying to keep the faith.
Every day I get up, hoping today he will be home. Every day I go do my workout. I need to be strong, healthy, and ready for this 2 year old. I hold hope.
