Whilst I very much support the plight of the Fathers 4 Justice. Im sick to death of looking for the equivalent for all of the mothers who have been left "holding the baby". I just cannot find a support group who takes the sides of children who are desperate to see their fathers!!! I had an amicable split from my ex and I was determined to make sure our daughter would have the best parenting she could get regardless of the situation, after all her father was leaving me not her. I put my hurt aside and kept the door open freely for visitation. My ex decided that once a month would be suitable for him. Never mind that his daughter was crying every night of the week for him. It nearly destroyed me but I would make excuses to my daughter so that he would not realise that it was daddys decision to have it this way. That was 4 months ago and visitation has gone down hill since then. Now its easter, summer and christmas for litterally a couple of days (if at all) and always has to return as quick as possible the next morning due to his career. The sole reason of this is because all his leave has already been spent with the women he decided to leave his family for. My daughter now realises that it is her dads choice not to see her and it hurts her although she knows there is nothing she can do about it. Over the months I have begged and shouted and screamed for my ex to take responsibility for his child but to no avail. WHERE IS THE LAW THAT MAKES THESE SO CALLED FATHERS TAKE THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES???????? I have all the worries e.g. kids being ill, transport, childminders, emotional support etc etc. whilst being the sole breadwinner. Why shoud I take the responsibility all the time? I nearly lost my job when my daughter was ill in hospital but do you think I could get my ex to take some time off even though he was entitled to time off for compasionate reasons? If it that hadnt been for my positive, determined and selfless nature my child wouldnt be so emotionally well balanced. In saying that I wont even begin to discuss the damage this has done to my own personal life or total lack of it!!!!! But its okay for these "fathers" who think that EVERYTHING in THEIR lives is more important than their children. Excuse after excuse, they make me sick! Someone, somewhere help me to find a support group, please. Thank you.
