Very mixed feelings

Posted: December 14, 2010 in Uncategorized

I am still one very unhappy camper. However at the same time I learned a lesson in humility today, to remember that there is always someone worse off than yourself.

A dear friend of mine in the US has just been royally screwed by their Family Court system. She fell pregnant to a boyfriend at a young age. He promptly didn’t want to know. She has had to raise their son by herself with zero support from Mr Deadbeat. Out of the blue he wants to start playing Happy Daddies. Then a court application to assume custody and guardianship. A hearing where he and his lawyer present a load of lies, accepted by the judge without the slightest evidence and now she has lost her child to a deadbeat who only recently was living on someone else’s sofa. If I am feeling gutted by recent events, how can she be feeling???

I feel so utterly powerless in everything.

  1. This is so disturbing. I feel like I've heard this story many times. Why do the deadbeats feel the urge to suddenly show up and ruin everything?
