Title: Does anyone remember Phillip
Post by: imherdaddy on Jan 25, 2009, 06:26:37 PM
I see some familiar handles around here, for sure.  I wanted to say Thank you.  Thank you Waylon and Olanna and Bradybunch and Agnes and Ivan  and Socrateaser and Kitty and Theirmomma and Steph and Logan and ...and many, many more. 

Ten, Twelve years ago I was wondering if my baby daughter would even know me today, and I was also trying to figure how to raise my teenage son to even graduate high school, muchless be self sufficient.

Well, today...My son is a father himself...and while he didn't always pick the roads I would have hoped he would , he has become a fine man in his own right.

My daughter dispite years of parental interferences just came to live with me a few months back.  I hung tough through all these years of interference with the guidance and support of the members here and I just wanted to say Thank you and let the newcomers here know, there are not many here that will steer a parent wrong.  And your knowledge is invaluable and empathy/sympathy is so appreciated.....And while fighting PAS is  not easy work and it doesn't payoff the way it should every time, I am a grateful man and a wiser man for taking your advice here.

I know without your support I couldn't have gone the long yard to raise my son to a fine young man he has become nor would have I been able to ensure my daughter know that I am the father that loves her and cares for her...and that I never abandoned her dispite what she was told.

I am so please to read your good news.  Some stories do have happy endings.  My son, the one I was fighting to stay in his life, came to live with me some five years ago.
 
He, too, is a yong father now.  He also took paths I would rather have been different for him.  But he's a fine young man and I am proud of ALL the things in his life.
 
Peace and love to you.

I remember Phillip (not the specifics of the case though).

Glad to hear that things are finally going well!

Kent!
