It's an all-too familiar story: One parent--let's say the father--wins primary custody of the children. The mother looks forward to her parenting time but starts to notice the children acting differently over time. They ask why she doesn't love them. They say they want to go back to their father's house. The father starts making excuses for why they don't want to visit. Eventually, they just stop showing up. They stop calling. The mother who gave life to these children finds her connection to them unravelling.
