It's not earmarked specifically for terminally ill children. Make A Wish wants to send her. He just doesn't want his ex-wife and daughter to go on a nice vacation together. Despite the 2 yrs his daughter spent struggling to overcome her cancer. What a jacka$$!

The father, however, blames McKenna's mother and grandmother for keeping him from seeing his daughter. "I wasn't allowed to be involved," May said. "It ticked me off."

Way to get back at the adults, you f*cking douchebag

Treating your children like pawns in a pathetic battle between exes is likely to give them cancer.

DIAF, Bad Dad.

Something tells me this kid is going to get her dream trip after all, and it'll be even better than it would have been under the original plan.

Something also tells me that Mom had a good reason for wanting to keep that sh*theel away from their daughter, although I'm generally in favor of fathers being treated equally with regard to child custody.

Methinks you missed the point. She's not considered "cancer-free" for five years, and you don't have to be on death's door to get a wish in the first place. So she's just as worthy of getting this trip as another child would be, and with what we know of the backstory with the parents, it's very likely the father put the kibosh on this to get back at his ex-wife, which has nothing to do with the child.

Did you read the part where he admitted doing it because he was, in his words, "pissed off"?

The Make-A-Wish foundation determined that the kid qualified, after she endured two years of extremely painful medical tests and procedures related to her leukemia. It's not up to the sire to make that call, and by his own admission, he did it out of revenge.

If it's not up to him to make that call, how did he make that call?

If this was an article about a little girl who died never receiving her wish because this girl got to go to Disneyworld or wherever even though she was in remission the masses would be calling for her house to be burned down.

It doesn't cost 3500 to visit Disney, though. (unless you live overseas). Hopefully Disney will step in for the PR and give them a free trip.

Airfare, hotels, meals, tickets. I'd say $3500 is on the low side of a Disney World vacation for more than one child.

My ex wasn't always nice to me about my visitation. But I never would retaliate, especially if it impacted my son. Bad karma.

Given that this story will be on the internet for a looong time, someday this girl will learn that her father tried to keep her from going to Disney World just to get back at her mother, and will hate him for it.

After going through two years of cancer treatment that included spinal taps, chemotherapy and hospitalizations because of reactions to the treatments, McKenna's mother, Whitney Hughes, and grandmother, Lori Helppie, feel she they deserve the trip.

Let's collect money for ourselves! Oh and we'll bring along this 4-year-old too.

They should do what I reefer to as "Disney on the Cheap." I did it a few months ago, myself: you book a room at a hotel near Lake Buena Vista for like $60 a night, then you visit all the Disney resorts for free. We went to Wilderness Lodge, Boardwalk, had a great dinner at the Pioneer Buffet at River Wilderness, took free boat and tram rides, and had a great time at Downtown Disney. Total cost of the trip was like $200.

C'mon, dude. Yeah, the wimmins get to yank custody from us at their whim because they've got vaginas and are therefore automatically more fit to be parents. But if you take it out on the kid, you're not any better than she is. Don't play her game. Besides, if you were going to do this, you should have then offered to pony up the dough instead somehow.

From experience:

Four roundtrip tickets from Chicago = $1500
Three nights at Animal Kingdom = $1250
Four three-day parkhoppers = $1200
Four days of food = $600
Four days of buying useless crap = $600

I know I spent over 5 g's back three years ago and I am doing it again this Christmas.

2012-07-18 10:22:56 PM  
So they've pulled their family's request with Make-A-Wish and are placing collection jars around the community to raise the needed $3,500 to fund the trip on their own

So, the money is already there. Why do they need Make a Wish and Father Jerk to sign off on it? Pack up the Aerostar and head down to Mouseland.

Idea: Don't have kids unless you have known your spouse for over 5 years.

Another Idea: No matter how big of a biatch mommy is, never do something that ends up in the news. She could be Hitler, and you'll wish you were despised that little.

CSB: My mom would never drive me to see my dad for the weekend. He always drove 8 hours round trip just to see us. She wouldn't even drive 45 minutes out of town to drop us off at a McD's so we could eat after 9 pm, since my dad drove truck.

Nope.

If you're talking just a handful of people, I could book a trip RIGHT NOW that would be well under that. Utilizing the current free dining promotion, the meals are a non-issue. Unless the travel will be super expensive or they're planning to take several members of the extended family they should be able to do it for well under that.

Sometimes visitation rights are denied for a reason. Maybe the guy's current behavior is an indication of how he treated his family in the past.

Either way, no matter how angry you are at your ex, you do not use your child to enact revenge.
 
2012-07-18 10:38:11 PM  
His reasons might have been fueled by the wrong reasons, but he's right, IMHO. i think the whole point of Make A Wish was for kids who are dying, not ones who have recovered. There are 600 kids on Make A Wish's waiting list. Many won't live to see their wishes come true.

Dad's still a dick though.

My ex-wife has been absolutely horrible about visitation since she got remarried.
We'd have a weekend arranged, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, something would "come up" at the last minute so my daughter wouldn't be able to come.

When I was working a contract in the Pacific, I had a few weeks off over Christmas. Had tickets lined up for her grandmother, aunt, (my mother and sister) and her to fly to friggen Hawaiil for her Christmas vacation (my year for visitation). Nope, one week before departure she decides my daughter has to visit (ex-wife's) mother for one day in the middle of Christmas break (the grandma they visit every single week, that lives 45 minutes away). Opportunity of a lifetime for a kid had never been more than 3 hours away from home, crushed. I could go on and on.

BUT, in spite of all of that, there is NO FRIGGEN WAY I would screw my kid over on something she wanted to do because my ex plays that game. As a matter of fact, BECAUSE my ex plays that game, I want to show that I'm a better person.

2012-07-18 10:48:41 PM  
I am a divorced Dad who has 50/50 custody of his two children, only after walking through fire for a year-and-a-half to get it.

She filed for divorce, didn't tell me or the kids, and the next day took them on a two-week vacation that I couldn't afford to share in because I was the only one with a job. She told me about having filed the day after they returned, then asked me to help her break the news to the kids. I despise my ex-wife for the mischief she caused, simply out of spite, during the divorce

But, you know what? My kids have no idea how much I loathe their mother, and as far as I can tell, she rarely says a bad word about me to them. It's simply a line neither of us will cross.

TFA doesn't elaborate why Mom fought this guy so hard regarding visitation. Maybe she had her reasons; maybe she's a biatch. Doesn't matter. He's only truly hurting his daughter. Maybe he believes with all his heart that his ex and her mother are scamming a charity to get a free trip to Disney for themselves. Doesn't matter.

I don't know this guy. He may be the world's biggest prick, or he may have convinced himself this was the only honest thing to do. Doesn't matter. He's wrong.

Sad thing is she may not have beaten cancer. She is nowhere near in the clear at this early stage.

He simply asserted she was as an excuse to ruin something the kid deserved. I don't know how someone denies a child who suffered like that anything. But your own daughter? It's inhuman. And sadly I see this self centered me me me attitude a lot. This father is so focused on his grievance that he doesn't worry about how it affects others. And his grievance is likely manufactured to deflect his own responsibility.

You sound not divorced.
Courts determine every other weekend, every other year for Christmas break, things like that all of the time. It doesn't mean that the parent with primary custody is going to be at all cooperative about it, and if they aren't that the judge is going to do anything about it once you do get a hearing (which takes a good year or better in some jurisdictions) other than make the primary caregiver promise to start playing nice or they might have to come back and promise again.

The Hawaii trip thing I posted about upthread is a good example. Not shiat I could do about it, I was 5000 miles away from a court with jurisdiction at the time, there would be no way to get a hearing in time to make the trip, and if mom won't drive her to the airport or let grandma come pick her up, there isn't shiat you can do about it, and some custodial parents use that to their advantage.

buzzcut73: Arcanum: spawn73: The mother is really cool for denying the kids father the right to see his daughter though.

I don't get it.

You really think she can just flip a switch and deny him visitation?

A court made that determination for some unsaid reason. I think we get a sample of the father's character and he doesn't sound like a fit parent to me.

You sound not divorced.
Courts determine every other weekend, every other year for Christmas break, things like that all of the time. It doesn't mean that the parent with primary custody is going to be at all cooperative about it, and if they aren't that the judge is going to do anything about it once you do get a hearing (which takes a good year or better in some jurisdictions) other than make the primary caregiver promise to start playing nice or they might have to come back and promise again.

The Hawaii trip thing I posted about upthread is a good example. Not shiat I could do about it, I was 5000 miles away from a court with jurisdiction at the time, there would be no way to get a hearing in time to make the trip, and if mom won't drive her to the airport or let grandma come pick her up, there isn't shiat you can do about it, and some custodial parents use that to their advantage.


You missed my point. Of course the system has problems, but it is not true that the mother made the visitation determination. She didn't. A court did.

I have a feeling this guy is 100% douche --- however I do have issues with mom thinking visitation is a privilege. We don't know all the facts. When a custodial parent think visitation rather the right of the child and non-custodial parent this can create an imbalance that is harmful to the child.

What if he offered to pay for Disney and they refuse or deny his ability? What if he wants to take her and they refused? What if he is worried that they won't comeback (reporters are known for not stating things)? What if this trip interferes with his schedule time?

Visitation is a right -- however in some cases people do need to earn the right back.

CSB: My mom would never drive me to see my dad for the weekend. He always drove 8 hours round trip just to see us. She wouldn't even drive 45 minutes out of town to drop us off at a McD's so we could eat after 9 pm, since my dad drove truck.

Clearly you didn't RFTA. The Make A Wish Foundation thinks the kid should go. If the Make A Wish Foundation doesn't understand the mission of the Make A Wish Foundation is, who does?

Arcanum: Lurk sober post drunk: well...ok...fair enough i guess. the mom could be some fire breathing super biatch who totally lied and screwed dad over regarding the divorce, alimony, visitation, etc. that could be the case. or, the dad could simply be a deranged, petty grade a asshole himself.
we just don't know.
however, not signing off on your little girl, who has gone through some horrific cancer treatments, going to disneyland? even if evil biatch/fine woman you just hate AND her mom get to go...
dude. fark you. it's your little girl. who just beat cancer. and disneyland. seriously, fark you. that's really something.

Sad thing is she may not have beaten cancer. She is nowhere near in the clear at this early stage.

He simply asserted she was as an excuse to ruin something the kid deserved. I don't know how someone denies a child who suffered like that anything. But your own daughter? It's inhuman. And sadly I see this self centered me me me attitude a lot. This father is so focused on his grievance that he doesn't worry about how it affects others. And his grievance is likely manufactured to deflect his own responsibility.


very true. hell, i know someone who "beat" cancer in their late 30s. she lived a healthy life before, but man, she blows the doors off most people i know regarding exercise, diet, habits, lifestyle, etc...
she also has sterling insurance, totally takes advantage, regular tests.
found out a couple of weeks ago the cancer is back. all of a sudden like, and BAD.
as much as that blew my mind, i can't imagine starting out as a little kid battling cancer.
fark cancer, and fark that dad.

As a little kid, my dad pulled the douchiest stuff during our visitations. I can't tell you how many times he'd pick us up, sit my sister and I on the bed, turn the tv on, and just bounce for the whole night. Or the times he had to kick my mom the support cash and would complain the entire weekend about it. "I'm sure she's not using that on you, she's using it for beer and smokes" (thanks, meth-head for that judgement). Or when my mom started dating again, he bad-mouthed the guy non-stop even though he knew exactly nothing about the guy (the man I would later call dad because of his complete awesomness after completely writing off my real dady).

It really got to me because I always felt like I was forced to a pick a side. I would see my mom by beer and think she was stealing from me or, or the fact that it took about a year before I warmed up to my step-father and learned that he is everything a man should strive to be.

Just jacked up all around.

Fark all of those women in well-established careers that get married and would have a harder time changing everything from letterhead and business cards to having to inform every single one of her business contacts of her name change.

I mean, whatever, I changed my name. I was looking forward to it. However, my (former) boss changed her last name, but felt like picking and choosing the situations in which she used her married name. It pissed me off to no end that she'd use her maiden name on her emails, but use her married name when she'd write notes and whatever. Biatch, pick one and go with it. It was confusing for numerous employees. Thank fark she moved to Arizona.

Some friends of friends had a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney with their daughter about a year and a half ago -- in her case, her illness was terminal, but from what they said it was clear that these trips were for any kid who'd been through a grueling, dangerous, long-term illness -- they're as much for the whole family as for the kid, it's about giving them a chance to relax and just enjoy themselves together for a week without having to juggle all the six thousand different things that have to be juggled when you're trying to run a household and hold down a job while caring for a seriously ill child. Even if this family does fund their own trip to Disney, they likely won't get the perks that Make-A-Wish families do, and that sucks. Whatever issues the dad has with the mother and grandmother, he's punishing his daughter for them. How on earth he thinks this is good long-term approach, I can't imagine, unless he just doesn't give a rat's ass about his kid. I wonder if the original refusal was a ploy to get them to include him in the trip?
 
2012-07-19 12:29:34 AM  
False, you farking trolltard submitter.
If the ex-wife and he BOTH said no to their offer, you wouldn't have a problem with it, would you?? And this wouldn't be a story.
And if the wife said no, and he said yes, it again wouldn't be a story.
There is only outrage because he's a man (who hasn't been allowed to see his own daughter, by the way).

lousy screw: I am a divorced Dad who has 50/50 custody of his two children, only after walking through fire for a year-and-a-half to get it.

She filed for divorce, didn't tell me or the kids, and the next day took them on a two-week vacation that I couldn't afford to share in because I was the only one with a job. She told me about having filed the day after they returned, then asked me to help her break the news to the kids. I despise my ex-wife for the mischief she caused, simply out of spite, during the divorce

But, you know what? My kids have no idea how much I loathe their mother, and as far as I can tell, she rarely says a bad word about me to them. It's simply a line neither of us will cross.

TFA doesn't elaborate why Mom fought this guy so hard regarding visitation. Maybe she had her reasons; maybe she's a biatch. Doesn't matter. He's only truly hurting his daughter. Maybe he believes with all his heart that his ex and her mother are scamming a charity to get a free trip to Disney for themselves. Doesn't matter.

I don't know this guy. He may be the world's biggest prick, or he may have convinced himself this was the only honest thing to do. Doesn't matter. He's wrong.

Agreed.
The proper action by decent parents should have been:
1. Make-A-Wish tells parents the kid won a trip to Disney World
2. Parents do not tell the child or anyone else about this yet (important part!)
3. If either of the parents don't think it's a good idea, then it doesn't happen
4. Don't run to the media or the public about things that are none of their business

silverjets: Anyone blaming the father stop to think about how much crap the ex-wife and ex-mother-in-law put this guy through when his daughter had leukemia to make him go to this level? Anyone?

Yeah he shouldn't put the kid in the middle but I'm willing to be he wasn't the first one to do so.


Valid point. If he's only recently had visitation rights restored, doesn't that mean that the ex wife and mother-in-law denied him access to his sick daughter?
The article phrases it as though the whole "it ticked me off" were his excuse for rejecting the trip, rather than someone asking him a leading question...

It may sound indifferent and/or cold, but saying that MAW should be used for dying kids, not kids that got better, is only dickish first hand, rather than realizing that hey, the kid got better, life is their frickin' reward. The whole point of MAW is to let kids do things they may never get the chance to do. This girl, who's only 4, obviously is going to have a lifetime of chances to go to Disneyland/world... That seems to be the real point the father was making.

I'm not saying he should be absolved for the whole thing... more that he should be the one to come up w/the cash, and he should take his daughter to Disneyland to celebrate her recovery, rather than just stand on a principle that also spites his exes.

From the linked article:
"Though Make-A-Wish requires signatures from both parents, there are a few exceptions, such as if a parent is unknown or cannot be found. In some cases, judges have intervened and granted authority.
Wood County Probate and Juvenile Judge Dave Woessner said his court would consider issuing an order for the parental signature, but McKenna's mom and grandma were worried that even that order wouldn't be enough."

Instead of trying for a court order they took it to the newspaper, is it possible they know they will get way more than $3,500 by using the daughter as a pawn?

Airfare, hotels, meals, tickets. I'd say $3500 is on the low side of a Disney World vacation for more than one child.


drive there you lazy farks. gas @ 20 mi/gal over 1060 mi @ $3/gal (clevland to disney, FL) round trip = $300.

motel: 5 nights at $100 = $500

Boy, my thought processes must be the odd one here. Everyone's so quick to believe this heavily biased piece. Has no one thought that perhaps the father was painted that way intentionally due to the emotional knee-jerk reactions people have when they see the words "four year old girl" and "cancer" in proximity? Did anyone stop to think he's trying to teach his daughter that just because she's qualified, doesn't mean she SHOULD take it when it could go to other children who weren't lucky enough to experience remission? Or is the "if you can get it, take it, whether you need it or not" attitude so deeply ingrained in the American psyche that this thought does not occur to us? I mean, even if the father's motivations were petty and spiteful, was it not petty and spiteful for a mother and grandmother to keep a father from his dying daughter, then run to the media to whine and beg for money rather than using this as a teaching moment to show your daughter there are more important things in life than Mickey Mouse, and that she could be doing something awesome for another little boy or girl who is less fortunate that her?

It doesn't matter what the exes did to him. He should want his daughter, who went through hell in order to live, to be happy. That's what a real father would want for his child. To be healthy and happy. The fact that he choose his own selfish spite over his daughter's happiness is reason enough to call him a schmuck.

Denying your child everything they want is not spite.


We aren't talking about some spoiled teenager whining why can't she get her fifth polo pony. We are talking about a four year old who spent HALF of her life battling cancer. Fark it, this toddler fought hard to live. It's Miller time for her. Okay, apple juice time. The father is a dick.

I have another take on that (off topic though): I need a qualification to be serve alcohol, but anyone with money can start a business & anyone at all can be put in charge of others - neither of these situations require the person to have any management or human resource training! *shakes his head in wonder*

You're right. For a week it's actually about 5 grand.

While the motives sound right, and I think she already received the biggest wish of all (to live), I wonder how much of this is out of spite.

If he really canceled the trip because he wanted the money to go to kids who are not going to live, then I say bravo.
 
2012-07-19 09:06:27 AM  
Seems to me the whole argument about whether the father is an ahole is missing the point. The whole article screams "poor me, give me all your money". That damning quote from the father (accurate or in context?) seems to be doing wonders for enducing sympathy and/or hate... which leads to donations. Pretty clever.

the only way I would ever be able to justify a vacation to Disneyland for anyone that young would be if they are dying. Period. just serious... not trolling.

tin_man: BURN HIM AT THE STAKE FOR SUGGESTING OTHER CHILDREN MIGHT BE BETTER RECIPIENTS WHAT AN AWFUL HUMAN BEING!!

Methinks you missed the point. She's not considered "cancer-free" for five years, and you don't have to be on death's door to get a wish in the first place. So she's just as worthy of getting this trip as another child would be, and with what we know of the backstory with the parents, it's very likely the father put the kibosh on this to get back at his ex-wife, which has nothing to do with the child.


Wrong.
The girl isn't dying, therefore the father, despite being a dick, is correct. That's what make-a-wish is for

You may now continue your artificial rage...

The MAW foundation does as much as it can. There are kids who are too sick for their wishes; kids who want things that just aren't possible; and kids that are healing that get theirs. It all depends on what they can get (availability and financing), as well as the kid's condition. DH did some work with them when we lived in NV, and it broke his heart.


The GTKW resort is a great place. It's set up like a small community. There are places to eat (no charge), things to do (no charge) and they help set things up with MAW and other similar charities. The WDW trip would have had a special escort, so the child could go to the head of the line on rides and M&Gs. They have Easter, Halloween and Christmas parties,and kids get the star treatment.

I am involved on another board, and they do "trip reports"--and sometimes they are from MAW families. The last one I read had a 6 or 7 year old boy who had cancer, and got to go to Universal and WDW--at Universal, they did the "choose your wand" thing for both him and his twin brother (who is not sick)--these little things are what will be missing from the parent-paid for trip. Broke my heart, reading what these kids go through--one little boy was born against doctor's advice--he didn't have a urethra and needed to start dialysis at birth--well, that one hits home a bit, as Master Jedana is on dialysis. The boy got the transplant and is healthy now, but still received his wish (WDW, of course).


We don't know if the guy is an a**hat and needed to be removed from the child's life; or if the mom was just a b***h who wanted to get back at the dad; or if they were both just overwhelmed and got caught up in the heat and drama. What we do know is the dad doesn't feel the daughter needs this trip, and the mom does. Anything else is speculation, and pretty petty.

Good for him. She only want his involvement when it suits her, but I'm sure she didn't mind when he emptied his wallet for leukemia and child support. If I was him - stuck with her - and I had even an inkling that her motives for that trip were not 100% for the daughter's good time and that it was something the mom was pushing/suggesting/wishing for herself, I'd nix it also. Unless we're in his shoes and we don't know the whole story, it's real easy to paint the victim/baby killer aspect here.

Maybe mom is a sheisty biatch? Maybe, ahem, he's right about dying kids/kids that are well? Whatever. Bottom line is it should be a private, family (or what's left of it) matter, not something you start parading about the news. ATTENTION! Look how EVIL this man is!

So once again, good for him, for NOT taking a handout. God forbid you don't get a blue ribbon for leukemia and gold bricks paved out your front door. Better get used to living the rest of your life without free vacation handouts, like the rest of us do. You'll live. (get it? hahahaha)

Jesus. This makes me so very glad my folks are still lovingly married after 30 years. Sure it wasn't always Mai Tai's and Yatzee around the house but at least I never had to deal with divorced parents.

Also the comments in this thread make me think that the "Know and date someone at least 5 years before you get married or screw without protection" talk that dad gave me just before I went off for college really makes a WHOLE lot of sense.

thisisyourbrainonFark: God Is My Co-Pirate: So...he's mad because he didn't get access to his daughter...so his plan is to ensure that she hates him, by cancelling the Disney trip she's been looking forward to for months.

Yeah but in the end she would have thought it was a pretty good joke.

silverjets: Anyone blaming the father stop to think about how much crap the ex-wife and ex-mother-in-law put this guy through when his daughter had leukemia to make him go to this level? Anyone?

Yeah he shouldn't put the kid in the middle but I'm willing to be he wasn't the first one to do so.


yeah... I am trying to imagine myself in a similar situation. If I wanted to be a good father, and see my kids, and had a ex that wouldn't let me, I would be crushed. I would see my ability to sign off on this trip as the only card I have to play, and I would play it. Let me go along with my little girl or the trip is off. My only chance to force this biatch to let me be a father to my child. In that context, I would absolutely side with the father...

That however is a very clear cut little fantasy and we have no idea what either of these parents have been doing for the last 5 years.

Valid point. If he's only recently had visitation rights restored, doesn't that mean that the ex wife and mother-in-law denied him access to his sick daughter?
The article phrases it as though the whole "it ticked me off" were his excuse for rejecting the trip, rather than someone asking him a leading question...

It may sound indifferent and/or cold, but saying that MAW should be used for dying kids, not kids that got better, is only dickish first hand, rather than realizing that hey, the kid got better, life is their frickin' reward. The whole point of MAW is to let kids do things they may never get the chance to do. This girl, who's only 4, obviously is going to have a lifetime of chances to go to Disneyland/world... That seems to be the real point the father was making.


Funny thing about this: MAW doesn't agree with you or the father. So your point, and his point, is that MAW should only be available for kids who are terminally ill or near it. MAW says you and he are both wrong and they offer wishes to children who have gotten better.

Susan McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, said that McKenna clearly qualifies for a wish since she has gone through so much in her two-year struggle to beat leukemia, the newspaper reported.

McConnell said it is unfortunate that the family yanked their request for a wish since the father wouldn't sign off. "She's been through a lot," she said of McKenna. "What I really feel bad about is she is stuck in the middle."

If you wanted to be a good father, you wouldn't play that card. A real father would fight the battle in court and not by disappointing and hurting their child. Children remember these things and they do start creating resentment. I never have been a child of divorce but a few of my friends have. One friend has no contact with his father, even as a 30-something adult with a child of his own. His father is really a decent man (I've had the pleasure to meet him) but just got into an ugly legal battle with the ex wife and he pulled some of the same stuff you were talking about.

The ex-wife, my friend's mother, never spoke bad about his father to him. It was just the 'well if I can't see my son this weekend, then I refuse to pay half the costs of summer camp' and stuff like that. It built a resentment in my friend up to a point he refuses to speak with his father. Also, my friend's young son has never met (and as far as I have been told) and will never meet his grandfather. In fact, at a funeral that I, my friend, and his father attended, my friend told his father that he would never see his grandson and as far as my friend was concerned it might as well have been a funeral for him(the grandfather). If that is going to bite my friend in the ass down the road...I don't know.

Point is that kids remember disappointment and if you end up doing that over and over, you become the hated bad-parent, even if you love them.

buzzcut73: My ex-wife has been absolutely horrible about visitation since she got remarried.
We'd have a weekend arranged, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, something would "come up" at the last minute so my daughter wouldn't be able to come.

When I was working a contract in the Pacific, I had a few weeks off over Christmas. Had tickets lined up for her grandmother, aunt, (my mother and sister) and her to fly to friggen Hawaiil for her Christmas vacation (my year for visitation). Nope, one week before departure she decides my daughter has to visit (ex-wife's) mother for one day in the middle of Christmas break (the grandma they visit every single week, that lives 45 minutes away). Opportunity of a lifetime for a kid had never been more than 3 hours away from home, crushed. I could go on and on.

BUT, in spite of all of that, there is NO FRIGGEN WAY I would screw my kid over on something she wanted to do because my ex plays that game. As a matter of fact, BECAUSE my ex plays that game, I want to show that I'm a better person.

/This guy is a douche
//END RANT


Thanks for the story, made me feel like I am not alone.

I just got re-married after being divorced eight years. My X said that it was fine if I brought my two children to the wedding (across the country.) I buy the tickets. A couple weeks before, she says they aren't going, I'm not allowed to talk to them until after the wedding. My daughters bday was the following week and she wouldn't let me see her because she was worried I would talk about going to the wedding. Now back from the wedding, my son's bday is today, I have tried to arrange a time to see him, to have them up this weekend or next, no response.

Yes, I can get a lawyer involved, again, and I will. I have gone through this many times and have had very limited success. Male, non custodial parents, do not have equal footing.

That seems a bit different to me. From what I can gather this guy has been kept away, and likely will be kept away his entire life. Nothing to loose by playing the card, a wonderful trip with the daughter to gain. seems fine to me. You should be looking at the people who forced him into a corner like that, with only 1 option left.

May was just granted visitation earlier this year, according to the Sentinel-Tribune.


My daughter has leukemia and you're preventing me from being there with her? You are a horrible person, even if you're her mother.

I guess all the "Smart" comments are coming at the end of this thread, instead of the beginning.

Another way to look at it is that the mother hates the father so much, that she would rather let the trip get canceled than have him along to celebrate together.

FTFY.


Pardon me, but it was the POS father who deliberately decided to be a dick. This article makes that VERY clear. Excerpts:

But Susan McConnell, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish for Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, said that McKenna clearly qualifies for a wish since she has gone through so much in her two-year struggle to beat leukemia.

"The doctors are the ones who determine if she is qualified," McConnell explained.

McConnell said it is unfortunate that the family yanked their request for a wish since the father wouldn't sign off.

"She's been through a lot," she said of McKenna. "What I really feel bad about is she is stuck in the middle."


and

The mother and grandmother have no doubt that McKenna deserves the Make-A-Wish trip. She was diagnosed with leukemia in April 2010 and had her last treatment last month. During that time, she had 15 spinal taps to make sure the cancer hadn't spread, multiple chemotherapy treatments, skin burns and vomiting from the chemo, and steroid injections that compromised her immune system. She was hospitalized four times due to high fevers. She won't be ruled "cancer free" until five years after her last treatment.

"I'm just angry after all she went through," Hughes said.

McKenna's father went to very few treatments and doctor's appointments, and was just granted visitation privileges earlier this year, the grandmother said.

Helppie said she is "outraged" that McKenna's father wouldn't sign off for the Disney trip.
The father, however, blames McKenna's mother and grandmother for keeping him from seeing his daughter.

"I wasn't allowed to be involved," he said. "It ticked me off."

But May said his refusal to sign off on the trip is not related to his anger at McKenna's mother and grandmother.

"It has nothing to do with that," he said.

However, Helppie and Hughes question his motives.

"He has made it such an ugly fiasco. It's not about him - it's about McKenna," Helppie said. "But he's doing this to get back."


His daughter has gone through hell, and all he cares about is getting back at her mother. He deserves all the hate he's receiving right now. What a jerk.

As an ex-wife who:
never asked for a dime, hell - I've loaned him money (I make more and he went on to have 3 more kids)
never withheld the kid (I call HIM every other weekend to check if he's going to see him or not, he has an erratic schedule & I want to make sure before I tell the kid)
never said a bad word about him (he returns the favor, we're pretty friendly, actually)...I am getting a kick.

Honestly, no one knows shiat-all about this couple. The custody issue - it's not always the movie-type scenario where the loving dad is kicked out in favor of Flashy Stepdad and he's calling all the time, begging for weekends, etc. Some dads couldn't care less. I know a guy that didn't bother to show for the divorce hearing, never bothered to even CALL (his kid was 2, reasoned that kid didn't know any better anyway)...but when he got married again, his new wife made him feel guilty so he filed and was awarded joint custody. Yeah, wives can be assholes, but so can dads. The general assumptions here are freaking crazy. How can so many people look at 3 lines in a story and get stars in their eyes for "Left out in the cold dad, trying his plucky best to be the best dad EVER?"

BTW, I think it's totally a money grab on mom's part (c'mon, not even TRYING to get a court signer?), but I see nothing but 2 people who sound a wee bit stupid, lazy or both.
 
2012-07-19 02:00:57 PM  
P.S. - if any of you have ever known an absentee parent who doesn't bother themselves with the kid too much...they are also usually the people who bray the loudest about how much they love their "babeeeees".

Again, not always true...but things are not always what they seem. I just was thinking about the fellow mentioned above (ok, he's my cousin and he's an idiot) and how he was always going on about his "little princess" and all I wanted to do was ask him if he knew when her birthday was, since I knew he hadn't bothered to call last year.

Again, to make sure I'm understood...I hear woment pull the same shiat. On the same note...I had a co-worker give UP CUSTODY because she was "still looking for a place" (for about a year) and 3 years later, she swoops in and wants the kid back - judge told her to fark off. To hear her talk though, she was Mother of the Year, that she did it allllll for him, that he ex was an asshole because he wouldn't let her randomly take him out of school according to her whims.

People that suck often have kids and it sucks to watch.

From another article:

"McKenna's parents never married or lived together. Her grandmother said the father only recently received visitation privileges.

McKenna's mother and grandmother are now collecting donations at local businesses to pay for the trip to Disney on their own. Money has poured in since their story spread beyond northwest Ohio. They haven't told McKenna why the Make-A-Wish trip was canceled.

"We've told her we're still going to Disney, just not when she thought it was happening," said her grandmother, Lori Helppie. "We don't want her judge her father."

Her father, William May of Toledo, said donations made to the organization should help those who are terminally ill.

"Spend the money on a child who this might be their last memory," May said Thursday. "Kids who are only going to live a year or six months."

The girl's grandmother said that McKenna has had a rough two years and won't be judged to be free of cancer until five years after her last treatment, which was last month. "

Allen. The end.: smokinbuddha: buzzcut73: My ex-wife has been absolutely horrible about visitation since she got remarried.
We'd have a weekend arranged, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, something would "come up" at the last minute so my daughter wouldn't be able to come.

When I was working a contract in the Pacific, I had a few weeks off over Christmas. Had tickets lined up for her grandmother, aunt, (my mother and sister) and her to fly to friggen Hawaiil for her Christmas vacation (my year for visitation). Nope, one week before departure she decides my daughter has to visit (ex-wife's) mother for one day in the middle of Christmas break (the grandma they visit every single week, that lives 45 minutes away). Opportunity of a lifetime for a kid had never been more than 3 hours away from home, crushed. I could go on and on.

BUT, in spite of all of that, there is NO FRIGGEN WAY I would screw my kid over on something she wanted to do because my ex plays that game. As a matter of fact, BECAUSE my ex plays that game, I want to show that I'm a better person.

Thanks for the story, made me feel like I am not alone.

I just got re-married after being divorced eight years. My X said that it was fine if I brought my two children to the wedding (across the country.) I buy the tickets. A couple weeks before, she says they aren't going, I'm not allowed to talk to them until after the wedding. My daughters bday was the following week and she wouldn't let me see her because she was worried I would talk about going to the wedding. Now back from the wedding, my son's bday is today, I have tried to arrange a time to see him, to have them up this weekend or next, no response.

Yes, I can get a lawyer involved, again, and I will. I have gone through this many times and have had very limited success. Male, non custodial parents, do not have equal footing.

fark! I am in the same situation! Good luck my man. You're not the only one.


I'm sitting in the doctor's waiting room to discuss a vasectomy. thus thread has changed my mood from nervous (about a big decision) to anxious (to have the procedure done ASAP).

rogue_L_chick: As an ex-wife who:
never asked for a dime, hell - I've loaned him money (I make more and he went on to have 3 more kids)
never withheld the kid (I call HIM every other weekend to check if he's going to see him or not, he has an erratic schedule & I want to make sure before I tell the kid)
never said a bad word about him (he returns the favor, we're pretty friendly, actually)...I am getting a kick.


How YOU doin'?
