Using Critical Thinking Skills

I hope you will use your immense critical thinking skills.  Think carefully about what is truly to your benefit. Embrace all that is good, deep within you.  In looking at the options before you, think of how some of these options might actually be of benefit to somebody else.  Be cautious when there is money involved – it changes people.  Certain systems by their nature, are perpetuated by conflict and divisions.  While somebody may be acting like a helper, if they also act in another role, as part of the system, it places them in a  conflict of interest.  They may or may not always be acting in our best interests, due to the conflict they are under.  Many people make a living off of situations like the one we find ourselves in.  It is important that we pay attention to these matters.

Look deep inside you for your own truth – that is where you will find all of the answers you need.  Deep within you is your own love.  We must never stop thinking critically.  We must never stop thinking for ourselves.  Deep inside you are all the answers you need.  Love, Mom

A Lifetime of Words

A grandmother is too precious to lose – somebody who took care of you as a baby, a toddler, a young child. Time waits for no one. Reach out. Take a chance. See past somebody else’s hate. This is YOUR life!!! This is YOUR GRANDMOTHER!!!!!

Following the cobblestone walkway to her front door on Cape Cod, I am marveling at the fact that at ninety years old she is still living on her own.  I am about to ring the doorbell when she pulls the door open and stands before me, small but steady on her feet. Her eyes show joy at my arrival, and I bend slightly to embrace her. After so many years of absence, I have found my way back to this grandmother who loves me.

IMG_1230This is becoming familiar, a pattern, this reconnection every few years. This time I vow to stay in touch better. She is all I have left from that before life, and she is always waiting for me to come back, my mother’s mother. We are connected not only through blood, but through terrible loss. In the before life she was my loving grandmother, providing stability and…

Kelly Rutherford joined by Christie Brinkley, Hosting Inaugural benefit for the Children’s Justice Campaign


‘This is why I started the Children’s Justice Campaign, along with co-founder Patrice Lenowitz. It’s really to educate people about what’s really going on – if you bankrupt the mother before she can appeal and before you send her children to a foreign country, then she’s forced to just focus on trying to figure out how to see her children.

‘To appeal a case like mine, it takes an enormous amount of time, and if there is anything even minimally wrong with the way the appeal is done, they can throw it out. Caring parents go in wanting what’s best for the kids and are willing to negotiate, [but the way the system has been set up] is not
in the best interest of the kids.’

“Never could I have imagined that leaving them one day would be the best way to guard [my children] from complete ruin,” said Kimber Adams in her memoir, Parentectomy, detailing the sudden alienation she experienced from her children desperate to do what they could to secure their father’s love.  “I understood that simply being present in my children’s lives enabled [my husband] to continue his campaign against me.”  She concluded that the two faces her children had to maintain to please their dad was “too much for them to bear.”

Written Intent to Erase Me From Son’s Life

Court documents and trial transcripts are a matter of public record…

From my ex-husband’s EIGHTH Petition for Sole Custody, Filed on July 30, Line Item #41:

“It is in our child’s best interest that he have no further contact with his Mother”.

Is there any doubt remaining as to the intent to erase me from our son’s life???

When I cross-examined my ex-husband regarding this signed, written statement in his eighth custody petition, he justified this by falsely claiming this was recommended by the “professionals”.  But, in fact, our son’s therapist testified to the exact opposite recommendation just two days before.

The Statute on best interests of the child state that a child should not live with a parent who refuses to foster a relationship with the other parent.  Parental Alienation is against the best interests standards as set forth in the statute.
