Those are where the just miracle stories happen. There are instances of parents that have had no relationship with children do all sorts of things to improve their life, to get clean and sober, to take their anger management classes, to take their parenting classes, to go to counseling with their children, and they’ve had their life turned around 180 degrees to where that child is happily living in their home and they are the custodial parent again. It’s just been a miracle from where it started. It can seem like just a very tough situation and very dark and impossible to overcome, but it’s been overcome many times. The family lawyer can walk alongside the client and help them just keep marching forward, doing the things that they need to do to improve themselves, to show that they can be good parents to their children.
