Christmas Trees for Alienated Families

288 Alienated Children’s Names from all over the world, Pinned to two Christmas Trees for Alienated Families in 2017.


Did you miss someone last Christmas? Claim the rightful place of your alienated child or grand-child in your family! Hold a space for them in your circle of celebrations and honour the tremendous trauma of everyone involved.

Millions of families all over the world, spent Christmas and the holidays without one (or more) of their beloved children. Why? Somehow, somewhere, a parent decided to violate that child’s basic human right to a healthy relationship with both his/her father and mother. These families will mourn the loss of those precious children and the children might never know their parent, siblings, grand-parents and extended family.

Alienation is a devastating crime and the harmful effects extend way beyond Christmas, to every birthday and milestone celebration of the alienated child. Read more about Parental Alienation as it occurs during divorce. Long after the child has grown up, the pain remains of the loving parent fading into a distant relative and finally becoming a total stranger. No child should be forced to grow up without one of their parents unless they are deceased!

In honour of our beloved alienated children, I created Christmas Trees to pin their names to. Help me to show the world how many children will be robbed of a parent and the privilege to spend the festive season with both sides of their families. Pin the name(s) of your alienated child(ren), even if they’re adults today, to this tree to claim their rightful place in your family, hold a space for them in your circle of celebrations and honour the tremendous trauma of everyone involved. You are still invited to join this cause, even though Christmas is past, as alienation occurs over the entire spectrum of families and cultures in this world.

It is time to show the world how big the problem is and that urgent, radical action is needed to rescue our children from this abuse! Let’s fill up as many trees as possible. Pins will be updated every 24 hours, so bookmark this page to check yours and follow the progress. Also share this page with all the alienated families you know. As an alienated child and stepparent, I have pinned my own name, “Sinta”, on Tree A at the co-ordinates E13. Click on the images below to see the two Christmas Trees with 288 names from all over the world already pinned to them. You may use any format you are comfortable with: name, initials, nickname etc. Your participation is free, confidential and you can remain anonymous if you wish.

    I happily dedicated my life loving and growing my kids until their age of 17 and 14. I had their custody since the last 10 years. This wonderful joy and blessing of seeing them growing every day and putting them to sleep every night if their lives was brutally interrupted last July 14th, 2017 when they went to their mother for their week end with her. Since then she and the grandparents and uncles alienated them from me and I couldn’t see them or talk to them even once. They kept us separated even for my daughter’s 14th birthday last September 1st, for my birthday last November 13th, and the day hardest and saddest day of our lives, the day of the funeral of my father (their grandfather) just 2 weeks ago. I am sure already that they will do this, again, on Christmas.
    I arrived to this site thank to a dear wonderful person that I have known in LA where she is fighting against alienation herself as a job. I pray God that there will soon be more and more persons just like her, helping kids and parents and relatives that have been stolen the right to love each other!
    Since almost 5 months I am stacked in the worse Court and Social Assistent system that you could ever immagine (that I had the displeasure of knowing already 10 years ago when I separated from my 2 sons mother). But I never accepted a “no” as an answer and I will surely not start to accept it today from this highly, dirty, aged minded and wrong system…. surely not for the most important challenge of my whole life.
    I will do everything and even more to be able to hug them and kiss them again. Certenly, as all of you do, I fell that the months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds and instants of their lives that I am loosing are the most precious thing in the world that they could ever take away from us….and the joy and happiness related to this moment we could have spent still together and united in our minds and our hearts will never come back.
    I also feel frustrated, alone, sad, in huge pain and sometime desperate, but then I think that the sooner I stand up to go fight for my children and my rights and the less of other moments of their lives I will still loose.
    I will always and forever love them far more then anyone in this entire world and surely more then myself. And I will always keep trying to see them and immensely love each other again. Even if this would take all my life….and more.

    Parents, grandparents, relatives and loving people that are suffering for the alienation from your loved kid/s we all have something in common …..the fisical and spiritual distance from our children / kids and the huge pain we are feeling -for this indescribable injustice and crime- in our loneliness inside of our hearts … but this also mean that at the end we are not at all alone!
    And together we can make a difference. So don’t by shy and put your name, face, mind and all your heart on it ….and stand up and talk, show and scream the pain and the injustice that your kids and yourself are suffering!
    Never give up fighting for the right to have the love of your children back!!!

    I was the main parent in care of all my children. They all had special needs. Since the divorce two of them have been alienated from me since 2012.
