I kinda feel sorry for her.......but I kinda don't.
I came across a post on facebook today asking for donations so a mom can fight for custody of her kids. The fathers of her children won custody in family court, so now she's trying to get them back.
Do these people even know what they're asking? By donating money, we're helping her try to take the kids away from their FATHERS. I mean, good God, this isn't the 1950's. I don't pity children raised by their fathers, and I don't pity women who lose primary custody. Obviously, the judge concluded their fathers were better able to care for them. These people are complete strangers. I know absolutely nothing about them other than the story attached to the donation site. I'm not going to "take a side" over who is better able to raise them solely on a person's gender.
And apparently I'm not the only one not pitying her, because so far her donation site has raised $0.
And before anyone starts pointing fingers and asking how I would feel in her situation.....I've already BTDT. There was a point when DH and I considered getting divorced. I looked at the situation with a level head and was willing to give him primary custody because he could afford to support them on his salary (and I wouldn't be able to even with CS). I love my children enough to know my gender has nothing to do with their best interest.
