Safe and Healthy Is The Goal



I kinda exhausted my writing resources today working on a new project that I’ll tell you more about when I can. That being said, I committed to writing at least once a day and I’m trying to live up to that commitment.

I thought I would drop a quick little update on how we’re doing.

Big picture, we’re doing pretty good. There are many things that are major challenges right now. Those challenges don’t undon the fact that we’re all safe and healthy. At the end of the day, safe and healthy is the primary goal.

One of the things that I wanted to acknowledge is how difficult it’s been for Lizze. I don’t know what goes on in her life anymore, as my contact is limited and only in regards to the boys. What I can gleam from these brief interactions is just how hard it is for her not to see her kids. We both agreed that the safest thing for our kids, as well as the people in her house, was to stop visits until such a time that we could safely continue.

This is hard on the kids as well. I think it’s probably harder on Lizze at this point because the boys and I have each other. She’s on the outside, at a distance. It sucks and I’m not happy about this but we don’t have another viable option at this point.

As I’ve said before. I don’t agree with or support her decisions, especially the ones that have so impacted the boys. That said, she loves her kids and of that, I have no doubt.

I’m grateful for her sacrifice at this point. I know it’s not easy for her but she’s putting the boys first and I appreciate that.

Divorce can be unwanted and civil at the same time. I’ve been able to separate my personal pain and focus on rebuilding a new normal for her and the boys.

I can’t wait for this all to be over or at least in a place where I can send the kids over.

I should also mention how hard this is for the grandparents as well. Everyone is making the necessary sacrifices to help keep the boys safe and healthy. It’s not ideal but we all recognize the importance.

We will get through this and reestablish visitation. The kids need their mom and she need them.

    This was touching, trying to deal with a possible with a separation between parents and all the whole spare the kids the most grief, especially with a child that is autistic is so daunting and challenging. I admire your strength
