“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.”
