The whole situation with Aubree is just so messy and unfortunate. While i completely understand the reasons for the court order and why visitation is how it is, i wish there was better communication and support for Aubree to maintain a relationship with her fathers side. Instead of saying, "you can't see them!" Chelsea should try to talk to them and figure out how to make it work. I know they have done things wrong, as well. And it's not something that is just solved overnight, but everyone watching can see how hard it is for Aubree. It breaks my heart.
My daughter's father was nowhere near the loser that Adam is, but he was not the greatest father either. After we split, even when he was in and out, i would refrain from saying negative things in front of her. I made sure she was involved with his family and even took her myself to their family functions when he would bail. Well, 2 years ago, he was murdered. He had started dating a new girl with a psycho ex who went to his house and shot him and the girl. When i got that phone call, every conversation i had with my friends about it being easier if he was gone came flooding in. The guilt was unimaginable. I cant fathom how much worse it would have been if i had let my daughter know i had those feelings.
I am sure to her it seems easier if Adam would disappear, but i wish someone around her would be able to get through to her to stop being so selfish. Aubree loves her dad and his family.
