Christmas in Supervised Visitation (Photography and Quote)

#1 The most outrageous action a judge took in your family court case

“The judge gave

sole custody to

my abusive ex,

who has a history

of drug & alcohol addiction.

 

One Christmas morning,

he was passed out on drugs.

He’d become angry & violent

if I tried to wake him

from his stupor.

 

So the kids and I spent

Christmas opening up

presents without him.

We learned to act like

nothing had happened

even as our hearts

were breaking.

 

Now I spend Christmas

in supervised visitation

after raising concerns,

and trying to protect

my children from abuse.

 

“Santa’s” gifts

were inspected by monitors

who took notes

about what was written

in holiday cards,

and documented our visit

as we awkwardly celebrate Christmas,

wishing we were home

and not in this awful place.”
