You will have seen that this month I have been posting daily with hashtags about "parental alienation"..
Could I ask out of my 700+ contacts what your understanding is now about what parental alienation/parental child abduction is and whether you see these as an issue?
Also whether you know any families other than mine that are affected by these issues..
I want to try to complete a paper/study so ALL comments would be appreciated.. pm me if you want privacy regarding your answers..
I will be extremely interested how many might take a minute or two to send me a response
Thanks again xx
I didnt really know that much about parental alienation until I saw what was happening with you.
Over the years we have been together I have seen the extent you go to daily to be part of Aleyahs life.
I have been to some of your termly visits to the school and its is obvious that the school teachers know exactly what is happening but are powerless to do anything about it.
I have seen the attacks on you for trying to stay involved in her life. Even death threats!
I see how proud you are of her and was with you when you went to see her in the School of Rock musical in London and how hard it was for you to be there as an anonymous face in the crowd.
Also I have seen first hand the tactics that are used to try to erase you from her life. Even trying to change her name and attempting to remove any photographs you have together from social media.
The effort you have made to raise awareness of parental alienation and parental child abduction with event such as football tournaments, skydive, concerts, the One Day Closer shop, even making the journey on foot between Spain and UK completing a marathon a day for 44 days and the planned cycle which now will happen in 2021.
Even with everything you are going through, you still take the time to support and listen to other parents who are facing a similar situation.
Every day I see how much you love and think about Aleyah and would do anything you can to be reunited. I cant wait to see that happen as you have done all of this without reacting to any provocation.
She should be so proud of you. All you have done is show your love for your daughter.
We have tried to celebrate her birthdays and Christmases in her absence and altbough I can see how much it hurts, you do so with a smile on your face.
Ive spoken to many people who knew Aleyah when she was here with you and they all say the same thing. How much of a dedicated, loving father you are and how dispicable it was the tactics that were used to take her again even after she was abducted and returned back to you through the courts.
Ive even spoken to people who once were friends of the maternal family who are disgusted with the way you have been treated and stepped away from their friendship with them for that reason.
You never give up Steve and I know you never will. Aleyah will be so proud of you once she realises everything you have tried to do.
I am sure she knows already but while she is still a child, she will still be under pressure and influence of the alienator. Your time will come Steve. I cant wait to meet her
