It's the holidays again ...Oh great

Thanksgiving MySpace Comments

The holiday season is starting again and this is a time that target parents can really feel the loss of not being able to spend the time with their children. While we spend our holiday eating a wonderful meal and giving thanks, we are not able to spend the time with the ones that we so dearly miss, love and care about. It is a void that no one seems to understand.

As I am thankful to have a beautiful child, supportive friends and followers of this blog, I am still human and have feelings. I still get down when the holidays come around because I know I will not be able to spend any time with my son. I get down, because he would sneak off to text message his father several times a day at one point, but can not "sneak" off now to send me a text message.

But this is not about me, it is about you and other target parents and how we can come together and be heard.

Parental Alienation is abuse! Stop the abuse!


  1. As we gathered around our Thanksgiving table, I counted the years since I last spent Thanksgiving with my son. While I was very greateful for my family around the table, it is impossible not to think about the son who was missing.

  2. I personally know the author of this blog. She was my neighbor (and good one too). I know her relationship with her husband and I know her relationship with her son. She tells the truth and I personally know her emotions and the reasons for her building this site are real. She and her son were both good neighbors. She and her son during those times inseparable. In closing here, She is the greatest of Mamas.

  3. Thank you Mike and Alan for your comments.

    As I gathered around my table at Thanksgiving with family and friends and I enjoyed my meal and company, I still felt devoid. My son was not there and I had no idea what he was doing. I did not know if he was having a nice meal and enjoying the day either.

    Somehow as target parents we have to put a smile on our faces and go on with life. We are expected to act like everyone else on a daily basis. What many do not realize is that behind the smile, the cheerful attitude and appearance that life is normal, it is not.

  4. I too can attest to what a wonderful mom you are and ALWAYS have been. God Bless You and I'm sure, as I have always told you, "he" will come home to you and realize the truth. Love, Julie
