My two children were taken from me and given to an abusive step mother and father, both of whom I've had protective orders against for their violence. I soon began to discover this was a horrifying trend that many "good mother's and fathers" were facing all over the country. I also found that the step mother positioned herself as A Guardian Ad Litem in the same court as the judge prior to my children being taken, further complicating chances of our reunification. Trusting in the Lord was my only hope in dealing with such a terrible situation that could otherwise destroy our lives.
Close in my Heart
(a prayer for children taken by the system)
You were taken away, only God knows why,
But the pain I feel brings tears to my eyes.
A system that’s broken, it seems so unfair.
I’ll never give up, that’s how much I care.
So when I feel sad over being apart,
I’ll remember this prayer that stays in my heart:
Please give me the strength to carry me through
And protect my children in all that they do.
For I know this is part of a much greater plan.
I’ll pray for the wisdom to help understand.
Until the day comes and I’m holding them tight,
I’ll give you my pain, and know it’s alright.
