M.C.

As a mom, I was unsure if POPS could help me, but I soon realized POPS is a place to go to for support and information because kids are the priority, not the parents. When my custody proceedings became overwhelming for me, it was easy to become an attacking and fearful co-parent. I really thought I had put my best forward and despite my best efforts I made mistakes. I felt helpless and hopeless. I got angry and bitter with people and “the system.” Put your differences with the other parent aside, you don’t have to like them or agree with them. You do have to stop letting the anger toward them fuel your fire. Get along to go along. Thanks to POPS and everyone else along the way, I can proudly say I am doing this and it has made all the difference.
