‘What about alienated mums?’
I hear that a lot. ‘Mums are alienated too!’ Now a new site gives alienated mums a way to reach out to their alienated children.
Founded by Anton Hooton, an alienated parent himself, Parents Missing Their Kids is a free website for mums and dads to post a loving message, their picture and their contact information in the hopes their alienated children will find them and choose to return to their parent’s loving arms.
The concept is simple. Anton writes:
There are thousands of parents on every continent in every town, who have lost contact for one reason or another with their children. These children may grow up thinking that their Mum or Dad doesn’t care. However the reality is more likely to be that the parent is desperate to love and nurture their child, but they have been prevented or restricted in doing so.
All these Parents here have taken it upon themselves to make a public statement of their love for their children and that they want their children to know that they want to be in their lives, regardless of the past or what others may say.
If you are a child that has been alienated from one of your parents, please consider that if they are here they love you and if not listed, they surely love you too (though probably does not know of this site).
On the Admin page, alienated mums and dads are encouraged to enter their name, email address, mobile or landline, a picture and a loving message to their child(ren).
Sponsored by ConveyThis.com, the site isn’t just for English speaking countries. It’s translated into forty languages worldwide and supported by two Facebook groups, administered by Anton Hooton.
Reading the comments from the mums alienated from their children is heart-breaking. From Abbotsford, BC, Teresa Milton wrote this:
Dear Wyatt and Faith
I can’t tell you how much I miss you…
I dream about you and sometimes I laugh in my sleep remembering funny stuff we’ve done; but most of the day and night I cry.
I want you guys to know that nothing will stop me from trying to get back into your lives…nothing. You guys are in my heart and on my mind all day every day.
Love you to the moon and back.
From Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania, Arona Kohn is reaching out to her son, James.
James, I love you to the moon and back kiddo.
I hope that you’re safe and taking care of your animals. I hope you come home soon. I miss you very much!
Take care of yourself.
From Hensley, Arkansas, Natalia Martin misses her daughter, Autumn Joy.
Dearest Autumn Joy!
My quietest middle whom I miss every day.
Your sisters found their way back to their mom and they are longing to see the reconnection with mom also.
They hurt for you and me. I am sorry that your perception of me has become so negative in the years after the divorce.
Love you with all my heart, Joy!
If you are an alienated mother or father, let your child know that you love them and miss them by posting a comment on Parents Missing Their Kids.
Broken families can be healed. Children do return to the loving arms of alienated, maligned parents. It happened for my husband, Rhys, and it can happen for you too.
