Every day all around the world a child and parent are alienated from one another. When this happens, lives are devastated, bonds between a normally loving parent and child are made to be apart, and hearts are broken. Parental alienation is something that has always been in our lives, but until it touches us, we always believe it only happens to other people. Sadly, it is our children who will suffer the most because, they will lose half of who they are, half of who they can become, and half of the heritage they should be able to know.
International parental abduction is a growing area of concern as relationships are constantly being born between people from different countries and cultures. In the US alone, it is estimated that over 800 children will be abducted by one of their parents and spirited away to a foreign country. This only accounts for the ones who are reported missing. There are some people who feel that the child can't be abducted because they are with one of the parents.This is untrue.

Parental alienation is a form of emotional abuse on both, the targeted parent and victim children alike.
David R Shubert is a left behind and alienated parent who has been fighting to be in his daughter and stepson's lives for over fifteen years now.

After becoming disillusioned with the family courts, he decided to take matters into own hands to promote awareness on the various social media outlets. He felt that he needed to write about what millions of other parents go through when their child has been parentally abducted or alienated from the other parent.
