Review for Calm Waters Center For Children And Families Inc, Ok City, OK, USA
In the midst of my Storm, as a married woman, husband of 13 yrs together 16, finally wants his divorce, and a mother of two previous children from God, gifts He gave me, (amazed since Doctor's in CA told me in 1998 that I could not have children) he's taken them and he and his families hid them from me since September 19 2013. I contacted my Attorney and finally heard from her September 29th so she could find out what was going on. October 1st my Attorney calls me with documentation of twisted manipulative verbiage I never said, he claims that I am verbally and physically abusive to him and my kids. He threw me to the Sharks/Wolves September 19 and again on the 25th and 30th of September. He was granted Emergency Custody 11 days of no word or knowing where my kids were. I am a faithful Christian Woman and mom and I finally went back to church also for my 11 yro dtr who begged me to take her back to church, she and her brother never got to go with me since I started August 11 and been faithful to my Lord and committed to Him in all I do. I became a member of my churcg in September. Counseling since January 2013, on my Hypothyroid medicines since April 2013 (Finally the correct diahnistics) my mom has Hypothyroidism too, been going to Women Conferences thru my Church at Rhema, went to Girls of Grace Event October 19th, on behalf of my daughter, and church groups and mom's were there too. It truly blessed me. 1st court date was October 10th and I was granted Sunday mornings to go pick up my kids in OKC, with Supervior driving time, and back El Reno, 9 to 1:30 & Wednesday nights 5:30-8:45pm. Been doing this and will do this until 2nd court date November 14th @1:30. II was also granted at least one phone call a day with my kids and I am aloud to go to, now both my 11 yr old and 4 yr old son go to school, their dad secretly moved our daughter to on September 30th. I saw their school for the first time November 6th with my 6th grader and Thursday the 7th with my Preschool baby boy. Their was a meeting on November 7th against me with John and his DHS and now Prevention people. I have updated alk to my Attorney and according to Prevention I need more Mental Therapy because of the twisted lies documented September 25th. The state has nor seen or reviewed eith my kids since my new court minutes October 10th. I have the best time with my babies in the car to and fro and at church before they are excused for their Bible Studies. My 4 year old sons class is called "The Worshippers" & my 11 yr old daughters is called "Azusa Street Kids". I am blessed I get to clean their rooms and sanctuary on Saturdays and volunteer to work in their classrooms. I keep praying for their dad and his families and friends and for my children who have been put in the middle of this. He hates me so much well he said he loves me that is why he did what he did he said to protect our kids from me. For the record I never verbally said those words to my children and never physically abused them or anyone in my 20 plus year's (I excluded between 0 and 18 since the words all my life here would not make sense) of my 36 years. Their dad was and is the man I loved and now have a New Love for him in Christ. I forgave him and his people's and I need to let this go and be loving kind and patient on getting my kids back into my life and me in theirs. Too much hate and anger built up between their dad and I. I want them 3 to stop this and in Jesus Name the Truth Set me FREE from false lies so I can be around my wonderful sweet children. They don't know me. I am not who they want to believe I am (hateful and evil) I am Loving Kind Gentle Caring Fun Encouraging Inspiring and Faithful in Him. Please keep us all in your prayers and ask me for the truth first. John promised he would make life H E double hockey sticks for me to keep me away from our kids but it's not for the right reasons. God bless and keep them. Colossians 1:9-12, has been one of my "Life-Changing Prayers". This is my prayer for me and my family and many other people around the globe. God bless and keep you too.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would share this information of The Parenting Through Divorce Seminar to Pastors, Counselors and one stop shop quickie chapels to refer Newly to be and or remarring couples to Calm Waters locations or a number to call. We can't predict our futures but in hopes we can become more knowledgeable and honest with loved ones then maybe few divorces, legal and uncontested.
