Response to child custody (sounds disturbing)
Are you concerned because the father has the daughter? Is there any concern for some kind of abuse in this family? Everyone else here sounds so positive about it, but being a skeptic that was honestly the first thing that came to my mind. But maybe there are good reasons for the separation like this. I cannot personally imagine what that is and unless the kids have a troubled relationship with one another I do not like the idea of siblings being raised apart. No matter how "on the same page" the parents are, there are going to be differences in how each child is raised and I imagine feelings about that are going to emerge between the children. Even in the foster care system they advocate for siblings kept together, so I don't quite get this but I don't have the whole story.
Oh...just read your newest post above. Really? The daughter living with the new girlfriend and her child? Hmmm...that's going to add a layer of complication at some point, if not now. I'm less concerned about abuse since there's a girlfriend involved with the dad, but still...I agree with you and don't like this set-up. But people do weird things and sometimes it turns out ok.
