I am shaking mad over an article I just read. This woman has stage IV breast cancer, but is otherwise strong and healthy. She has two children who live with her.
And for the last 18 months she has been in and out of courts because her ex husband is suing her for the custody of the kids. She lives in North Carolina I believe and he's in Chicago. Now, a female judge no less, has ordered her to give up custody of the kids and place them in his care by June 17. This decision is solely based on the fact that she is ill.
The reasoning behind it is that it gives the kids a chance to get to know that 'non-ill' parent, which they ultimately would end up living with anyway.
Are you kidding me?
They are robbing both the mother and kids from precious time. Are you telling me this is in the best interest of the children? How do they sleep at night wondering if their mom will pass away before the next time they'll see her?
How does she keep up a good fight when so emotionally drained?
And what kind of deadbeat asshole dad would ever take the kids away at a time like this? Doesn't he think that the kids will grow up to hate him one day for keeping them away from their mom.
This is her blog.
Please go and add your name to this list. She is trying to over-rule this incredible unfair ruling and this is a petition for it. And then, just for kicks, go to this petition, which is demanding for the judge to be removed from her position for violating human rights.
Ugh. I am too mad to type.
I am slamming down on the keys too hard and I may actually be harming my computer.
