My daughter was asked to write her version of what happened in our divorce at DC4K. She loves to write and this is what she came up with. She wrote it on her own.
My parents divorce
One day I heard my parents fighting. Then they sent me to my room, because they were saying things that I should not hear. I was sad because they told me they would get a divorce. Then what made me very sad was my dad would move away.
Mommy and I lived together. Mostly every weekend my dad came to visit. Then we moved to a different house. My dad did not come to visit any more, but I went to my dad’s new house. when we moved I went to a new school.
How simple it is, but how she perceived it, was eye opening.
