Defendant Mr. Charles Sasser
State of GA.
The Official Code of Georgia Annotated or OCGA is the compendium of all laws in the U.S. state of Georgia.

Did you know that the O.C.G.A. now states that family violence victims have a right to have a full, loving and open relationship with their child(ren).
Did you know that the O.C.G.A. now states that those who have been parentally alienated have a right to have a full, loving and open relationship with their child(ren).

Did you know that the O.C.G.A. now states that there is a right to parental reunification process if you have been alienated from your child(ren).
Did you know that in the Juvenile and Superior court of Law in the State of GA it reads The Court reserves ruling on the issue of contempt but recognizes the need to assure compliance with the Order of this Court that the Plaintiff’s (Ms. April Sasser) relationship with her child as a parent be fully established. January 5th 2012

The Court encourages the parties to attend some form of family therapy. However, the Court is not ordering that the parties do so based upon the age of the minor child, the current relationship of the parties, and the history of the case.
Did you know all to our full behalf and favor:
2004, Honorable Nancy Bills, Rockdale County, Georgia USA, Opinion and prepared, proposed Order, Superior Court
and of note; Mr. Sasser’s very own attorney of record and choosing giving me full custody of our youngest daughter and for Mr. Sasser not to interfere in the relationship of me and my older three legally adopted step – daughter’s.
2008, Honorable Sidney Nation, Rockdale County, Georgia USA, Order, Superior Court

and of note; upheld and made clear in open court that Juvenile Judge, Honorable Stanley Rhymer’s Order of therapeutic
visitation with the goal of a full and open relationship once again, remain standing and be upheld. Order
The only issue left remaining is the analogy of the Superior Court on January 5th 2012. Of which, a wound that should endure no
further, scarring. Not to mention, the Parental Alienation and Estrangement of (6) six, individual’s lives since 2004, and with no fact’s or evidence of any wrong doing as parent to child or child to parent nor as wife to husband, either, for that matter. Georgia, USA
To current 2014.

*****Not once in 20 plus years has there ever been one single hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation as to any wrongdoing on my behalf as a mother nor as a wife. Not in 20 plus years of being a mother. My advocacy did not just begin with my own daughter it began in 1994 with my three legally adopted step- daughters where it is of documented authenticated record of their natural mother’s remiss, neglect and abuse time and time again. Therefore the adoption took place.-

I have lived and survived to tell this horrific tale of parental alienation that still continues forth and forward today due to Mr. Sasser’s hatred and out of his act of hate. Even given *****Not once in 20 plus years has there ever been one single hint, suggestion, implication nor accusation as to any wrongdoing on my behalf as a mother nor as a wife. Not in 20 plus years of being a mother.
Currently reading Let Your Life Speak by Parker J. Palmer Listening for the Voice of Vocation given to me by a dear friend Deanna Dennis of Turner Broadcasting. This is my Vocation. This is the Voice of my Vocation. Telling this story and leaving behind this legacy for my children and for my daughter’s and own birth daughter to know and understand that I did not abandon them nor has there been any wrong doing on my part to ever be questioned or put into position.
Some questions I am asking myself while dealing with emotional pain are
Where does emotional pain come from?
What does emotional pain feel like?
What kind of situations, events or relationships in my life can lead to emotional pain?
How have I dealt with emotional pain the past?
What actions in my day to day life show me I might be dealing with some emotional pain?
Are these actions working for me?
What can I do differently to deal with my emotional pain?
Is there any guidance in God’s word about dealing with emotional pain, and where can I find it?
My son Tyler, my best friend has been a very large part of my life. Always having an open, full and loving relationship.
Having taken and taught many classes for View Point Health at New Rock and been in attendance and a graduate of The Respect Institute through the State of GA by Mr. Joel Slack the classes teach you to tell your story. To share your life. I am doing so. Being the advocate that Deputy District Attorney Mr. Richard R. Read taught me to be nearly 20 years ago.
I have been in attendance taking and teaching classes at New Rock through View Point Health. Taken and graduated The Respect Institute training. Graduated from The ACT Team of the State of GA and graduated the GPSI The GA Peer Support Institute training offered through scholarship by The GA Mental Health Consumer Network. A day was cut short due to my son being very ill and needing medical attention. I still prepared and turned in my project to New Rock even though I was unable to present it as of this point. I hope to have it on display at either New Rock or at The GA Mental Health Consumer Network very soon.
This is my Voice of Vocation. I have hurt so deeply over these issues that the State of GA and my ex husband and his family have put me through that I may never truly heal. I live it day in and day out to this date.
I try forgiving and forgetting.
But my Voice of Vocation inside me will not allow it to be forgotten.
Forgiveness is not for the person you hurt, it is for you.
Reflect on a person or loved one, or two that you have hurt by your past and present behaviors or has hurt you.
Was or is it worht the pain that you are putting them and yourself through?
Have you asked for forgiveness from that person? If no why not?
Have you forgiven yourself? Have you forgotten?
How can you move forward and live a healthy life again?
I try my best to stay actively involved in community and to live a healthy life but not all days are good days. I have been an active full time blogger for The Covington News for nearly 3 years now and it has served as most therapeutic and keeps me involved in community activities and serves its purpose in therapeutically healing me.
What began as tearing photographs and ads from magazines as journaling turned into jounaling with pen to paper, WordPress blog and now The Covington News blog. Journaling is fun and there are no rules.
Benefits of Journaling:
Cope with Depression
Journaling helps control your symptoms and improve your mood by
Helping you prioritize problems, fears and concerns
Tracking any symptoms day to day so that you can recognize triggers and learn ways to better control them
Providing an opportunity for positive self – talk and identifying negative thoughts and behaviors.
Building happiness includes gratitude, acts of kindness, exercise, meditation, positive journaling and fostering relationships.
The O.C.G.A. is my Voice of Vocation and I will survive and live to tell the tale.
