About 8 years ago I made one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. My ex wife would not allow me to see my kids and never told me why and I didn't have the money to fight her in court. After month of begging her to let me see them i decided to wait it out until they were old enough to contact me themselves. On Fathers day 2007 she brought them by to visit and that was the last time I have seen or spoken to any of my kids.

Three nights ago my oldest son, Jared, contacted me through Facebook and told me he is trying to get his mom to let him visit me. He is 14 now. In one more year she won't be able to stop him legally. I just have to wait for the two girls now. Chatting with him till 4am for two nights he seems to be a smart respectful kid. Maybe something in those first few years I taught him stuck. I can't wait to actually see him in person. Hopefully it wont be too long.

Yes Patience does payoff. Glad you are getting to share in your son's life again. Now just keep the patience and wait on your daughters, but I'm sure your son is talking to them now about his contact with you. Congratulations.

I have been through the same thing and it's tough on the kids and you. I hope you can get your kids back in your life before it's too late.

I am still hopeful on my son, but he doesn't seem to be interested in a relationship with me right now. X-wives can be a real PITA !! :mad2:

I hate to hear this from both of you of not being with your kids. MBWW....happy to hear your son & you speaking. Brian....I had no idea about you having a son. That HAS to be the toughest thing in life to go through!

Brian as Daniel said I didn't realize you had a son that you don't get to see. I hope some day he will come around and realize what he has missed. There is no telling what the X has told him. A real shame.
