2007: A daycare provider observed my children playing, and noted (below is provider’s actual notes) they were playing “Police, police coming, Daddy’s here!” and “911, call 911, Daddy’s here!”
Child 2 also said she was upset and had “big feelings” related to her father and that she “keeps them (the “big feelings”) in her pocket. Child 2 was severely speech delayed, and I believe it was due to abuse and trauma she experienced. To this day, Child 2 holds her feelings “in her pocket” and has difficulty expressing herself.
I lost custody to the man who gave my children “big feelings”, and caused such fear that both children thought they should “call 911, Daddy’s here!”. A man with over a dozen allegations of child abuse against him, and both children diagnosed with PTSD. Where is the justice in the Hennepin County Family Justice Center?
(I omitted the rest of the daycare notes to protect the children involved but further observations include more remarks indicating abuse; they are too sensitive to post online.)
