My second daughter came into the world in April of 2007 at 6lbs 9oz. I’m a planner- she arrived just two years and three days behind her sister. She came into the world with a sleep schedule to-die-for and was all smiles while awake. This little girl completed my world. She was such a happy, peaceful baby in every way.
When I thought about my baby girls- my heart was overflowing with joy. I was happy beyond anything that I could describe. I loved every moment of motherhood. I was enrolled in every “Mommy and Me Class” offered within a 20 mile radius. My world started to revolve around making organic baby food, play dates and every conversation began with, “Guess what she did today?”.
My life changed from shopping for the newest Coach purse to searching for organic baby food recipes that I could make at home. I was in love with motherhood. Every. Single. Aspect. Of. It.
I was smitten.
One Mom’s Battle: Our mission at One Mom’s Battle is to increase awareness of Cluster B personality disorders (Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Antisocial Personality Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder) and their impact upon shared parenting and the Family Court System which includes Judges, CPS workers, Guardian ad Litems (GAL), Parenting Coordinators (PC), Custody Evaluators, therapists and attorneys. Education on Cluster B disorders will allow these professionals to truly act in the best interest of the children.
History of One Mom’s Battle: In 2009, One Mom’s Battle began with one mother, (Tina Swithin), navigating the choppy waters of a high-conflict divorce in the Family Court System. Since then, it has turned into a grassroots movement reaching the far corners of the Earth. Tina’s battle spanned from 2009 – 2014 during which time she acted as her own attorney. Ultimately, Tina was successful in protecting her daughters and her family has enjoyed complete peace since October 2014 when a Family Court commissioner called her ex-husband a “sociopath” and revoked his parenting time in a final custody order.
Tina Swithin: Divorcing a narcissist? Tina Swithin’s books are available online at Amazon (print, Kindle or audio format). Each year, Tina offers life-changing weekends of camaraderie and healing at the Lemonade Power Retreat. Tina also offers one-on-one coaching services and a private, secure forum called, The Lemonade Club, for those enduring high-conflict custody battles.
