Judge Doyle's Ruling

I have spoken with my attorney and the ruling is that Emily stays with her mother, I get visitation and a $29,000 child support bill.

Visitation has been ordered back in 2004 however Emily and I last saw each other in May 2006 so you can make your own mind up as to what that is worth.

Everything else that Sheila has pulled is "in the past".

At times like this, life can really strike you as being horrid but, and it is a BIG BUT, I personally believe that every single day I am above ground and sucking down oxygen is a good day.

Now I have to move forward with an appeal and at least we have this out of Judge Doyle's hands.

Just remember, all of you who are in a position where you can't see your kids or you feel a sense of grievance at how you have been treated, this is all temporary, you pick yourself up and move forward because you love your kids and not because you feel you have been kicked in the balls while lying down - just remember why you are doing this and it is not for you.

I'm doing this for Emily which is why I'll get up again and go forward.

No-one in their right mind would do any of this for themselves.

You are right ~ no one in their right mind would go through any of this for him/herself. It's all about the children. And, yes, my friend, that is what we need to remember and hold onto. One day, they will know (yours... mine... and countless others) that we fought for our children ~ and fought for them the right way with the law and morals close by our sides... No one knows what tomorrow holds; hell, it might even be good!! Chin up ~ promise?

You are right ~ no one in (his)right mind would go through this for only (him)self. It is all about the children (yours... mine... and countless others). One day, our children will know the truth, and they will come to realize that we fought tooth and nail for them, and did so the right way, with an ocean of love and a sea of morals close by. Let's face it, no one knows what tomorrow holds; hell, it might even be good!!! Chin up, dear friend ~promise!
