April has only been allowed to come to our home one time since July 27 of last year. It was for an overnight visit on October 13, 2012.
At the time, Christy had not been allowing April to visit with our family. It had been 78 days since April had come over.
On October 11, 2012, strangely enough, I received a text message from Christy. She decided that she was going to allow April to come visit us. We were excited but leary. We kept this fact from our girls just in case it turned out this was just one of Christy’s sick games. To our surprise Christy did show up with April and Kaylee at the meeting point. After, Christy and Kaylee gave April long extended embraces, April drove home with us and the Barrow family celebrated our re-union.
Those of you familiar with Parental Alienation know what’s coming next.
Two weeks later, Christy filed a report with CPS accusing me of being a Peeping Tom while April was in the shower at our home during the October 13th visit that Christy had setup.
The good news is that CPS will NOT be filing any charges noting the timing of Christy’s allegations coming conveniently before our court date in November. Up until these allegations, Christy had NO justification for keeping April away from our family.
She still doesn’t have any valid reason, but now the damage is done.
In Canada they call it the “Silver Bullet.” An uncorroborated, false allegation and the alienating parent gets what she wants—me out of April’s life.
Everything now comes to a halt. I have to attend weekly therapy sessions with April. The good news is that it’s not with Christy’s usual ‘bought and paid for’ therapist.
I can’t contact her, call her, text her. However, if April wants to, she can initiate any type of contact with me. I tried to explain to the judge that there is no way that April is going to go against her mother’s wishes and contact me.
I haven’t heard from April.
