I am very sad to share the news I am going to share with you. As soon as I saw the headline, I wondered if it was the same country star I had written about in a previous post. I am very sad to say that it was.
The prolonged court battles take quite a tool on people. I wish the court would know how much damage it really does. I wish I had had a chance to speak to Mindy McCready. It may not have had made any difference though. There are some people who fall into addictions and cannot be helped, at least not without facing the addiction demon first.
You will hear Mindy’s story and I already can see that the press is making it all about drug and alcohol issues and downplaying the effects of the family court nightmare. I do not know which was a problem first. All I know is this woman hurt and nothing the family court did helped those children. Those children now have no opportunity to know their mother.
I have said before, I don’t have all the answers. What I do know is how custody battles can shred people and destroy lives. Liars win and protective parents are misunderstood and misjudged.
God bless all of you readers who struggle with this on a daily basis. By the grace of God, I made it through. I knew that because of the knowledge I had that I had to help people. I swore to God that if he brought me and my children through, I would do just that. If you are reaching the end of your rope, hold on and reach out to someone who will help you. Please call me and let’s take stock of your situation and try to turn it around. I really am in your corner and I know what it is like. I am not one of “them”.
