Another Easter Without My Daughter (Photography and Quote)

Screen Shot 2015-04-04 at 2.13.40 AM

“Another Easter without my daughter. I miss your giggles joy, and wonder on discovering all your Easter goodies in your basket. I miss making you bunny pancakes and seeing you bite off the ear with glee as the syrup trickles down to your chest. I miss dressing you in your special Easter dress, carefully chosen by us weeks before, and braiding your hair in ribbons and bows as we get ready for church. I miss you asking to borrow a touch of my perfume as you stand tall in front of the mirror admiring the little lady you are – all dressed up on Easter morning. I miss you and our special Easter days.”

#2 What hurts you the most about not being in your child’s life

“What kills my very soul is that I lied to my child. And his father made good on his “promise.” I told him to tell the truth   and the police would protect him. But his dad told him if he told anyone, the police would take him away from me…they did.”

#2 What hurts you the most about not being in your child’s life

“It hurts me the most that we cannot decorate our x-mas tree together. I cannot make you hot chocolate, help you bake cookies for Santa or see your excitement as you try to go to sleep on x-mas eve and wake up at 4 AM with anticipation and innocent joy, as you rush downstairs to presents left under the tree. I AM YOUR MOTHER. Why does any Judge feel they have the right to take away a child’s mother!?”

#2 What hurts you the most about not being in your child’s life

“What hurts me the most about not being in my children’s lives;

Our tradition of going to our local library to see the Christmas Santa display.

Enjoying story time as we gather around the Santas to have the library storyteller read all the classic Christmas Stories to my children as they and sit and snuggle on my lap.

Why are these tender milestone moments stolen from us by Family Court? These special moments between a mother and child can never be replaced.”

“Those Things Have Been Stolen From Me and Can Never Be Returned…” (Photography and Quote)

missedmilestones

#2 What hurts you the most about not being in your child’s life

What hurts me most is missing out on mother/daughter milestones.

I was not there to buy her her first bra.
I was not there to help with her first period.
I was not there to help her get ready for her first school dance.
I will not be there for her first date.

Those things have been stolen from me and can never be returned.

“I Take Comfort in Knowing I Am Not Alone”, A Special Recognition (Photography and Quote)

Screen Shot 2016-01-17 at 2.27.43 PM

PMA International would like to take a moment to recognize the hero Protective Mothers who have bravely offered their support to fellow mothers, through our campaigns.

As a survivor of abuse and/or family court trauma, so often you are forced into silence… sharing your experiences and insights is not easy, but in doing so you have helped to raise awareness about family court injustices, and offered comfort to other struggling mothers.

One of these mothers is a valued PMA  International member who was so touched by a picture quote on our “Unstoppable Mothers” page, that she left this following response:

Everytime I hear another tragic story from a protective mom, my heart cries and my mind takes me back to a place my heart died. But I take comfort in knowing I am not alone.

PMA International has created the following heart stone picture to honor the Protective Mother who has shared this quote, and to honor the Mothers who have given so much in the fight to protect their children.

PMA International would like to thank all of you for your efforts and contributions to our continuing campaigns.

 

We look forward to more contributions from hero Protective Moms.

#2 What hurts you the most about not being in your child’s life

” What hurts me the most about not being in my child’s life- I miss going to the annual sand sculpting contest on the beach near our home. It was a tradition for us marking the end of summer vacation. Now if I try to go alone, I just cry.”

Halloween Without My Boo ( Photography and Quote)

Halloween-with-my-son's-friends

#2 What hurts you the most about not being in your child’s life

“I could not go near my son on Halloween.
So I trick or treated with my son’s friends wishing he was there.
My son told me he didn’t go nowhere or get any treats.
Instead he had to listen to daddy fight all night with his new mistress.
I just prayed my son was aware that my heart
was waiting for him on that Halloween Eve.
I love you and miss you Boo.”
