I am an estranged Father. I live in India, but my wife and kids live in USA. My wife doesn’t really care about me and wont let me have any kind of access to them. I recently send some birthday cards to the church that she attends, because that is the only way I can communicate with my kids. I really hoped that the pastor would be good enough to give the cards to my kids directly., but he goes “let me speak to your wife before I can give the cards to the children”. It crushed me, because I knew that the cards would never make its way to the kids. I asked them what they wanted for Christmas (2016), but I guess I wont get an answer to that.
I thought the pastor would be bit more proactive…but he just came across as just doing his job,,,No personal commitment. I guess that’s the way the world works now. I just wish I could talk to my kids.
