I am basically an optimist by nature, and I always try to look at the positive side of everything. So I am trying to find something positive out of the judge's custody decision against me. After all, what seems like a major setback can be a good thing in the long run.
I have assured the kids that I will do my best to make sure that everything works out fine.
If it weren't for the adverse ruling, I would probably still be under the delusion that I could get a fair hearing and an opportunity to persuade the judge using rational arguments. I thought that I would just stand up in court, show the judge that the psychologist's report is garbage, give compelling arguments as to why I am right, and persuade the judge.
Now, at least I have a better idea what I am up against.
