I have read the stories on this site and I can connect with every single one of them. I can hear the desperation and frustration in every word,and up until yesterday I had exactly the same feelings. I have recently seperated from my wife and its not the first time. I haven't seen my daughters for 2 weeks and even though its not that long, it feels like forever. I have been going through hell again, fearing that I may never see my children again because I am a father in Japan. I too, have been blaming, critisizing attacking my wife@and her family for doing this to me. For making it impossible to live with or live without my children. I was scared. Very,very scared. I thought about kidnapping them. I got the passport applications from the internet. I read all the horror stories and confirmed all my suspicions that Japanese women are all crazy. That this country was against me and would keep me from my children.
And then yesterday i woke up.
Has anyone ever read a book by a man named Neale Donald Walsh called, "Conversations With God"? If you have and you are still having trouble, please read it again. If you haven't , I would really recommend that you do. Please, do not run from the title. Please open your mind and read it. You have to open your mind and listen deeply to what it says.I cant say any more than that.There is a great chance that your life could take a huge swing. MIne has in the last 24 hours. I was on the brink of losing everything but now I have hope and I want to give you all an opportunity to change things too, because anything has got to be better than losing our children. Even losing our wife for that matter because no matter what you are going through now, there once was a time when you fell in love enough to get married. It has to be worth a go. I believe in the words and messages contained in this book. There is so much more to life than all this pain. All this waste of time and energy. Read it please and get in touch with me so we can work through all this together. I know I will get through to at least some of you with this message so if only a few families are reunited, thats better than none. That is a step forward. I am not a religious man, but I have an open mind and a desire to create a better future than what I was faced with. I know you do too because you wouldn't be telling people your story if you didn't really want help. I want to help.
Thank you so much for reading this and taking it to heart. Think deeply and make your move with me.
