I'm sorry you had to go through that. I'm glad, however, that you are getting clear. Welcome back to the forum.She still isolates me from my daughter and won’t ever let me even see my step children, but I got a lawyer and at least can see my daughter more often. For an entire year she only let me see my daughter for two hours, once a month, with her boyfriend monitoring my visit.
Moral of the story is always get a lawyer even if you can’t afford it. Don’t assume the best of people who made your life miserable for 7 years.
