Why I am doing all this

Why am I keeping this blog? Why am I putting my story on the internet? Why don’t I just let go and move on? The answer is that I am doing the only right thing I can do. It’s that simple.

What my ex-wife Shijima Hirasawa (平澤しじま) and her family, including the Tajiri family (田尻家) did to my daughter Emilie and to me is wrong. They have cut us off from each other.

Shijima’s argument is that what she is doing is perfectly legal. Certainly it is legal but it is not right.

Should I go quietly away? Should I let Shijima cut us off without reminding her of the consequences of her actions? Should she go on believing she “got away with it”? Should she feel rewarded for kidnapping my daughter from her father?

I cannot accept that and if the law won’t protect my daughter and me, then I have to let as many people as possible know what  happened and how my wife and her family behaved.

Her first  husband, an American, agrees with me and he wants nothing more to do with her. Shijima cost him nearly a decade of his life in aggravation and suffering and today he is disgusted by her behaviour.

I will never get over losing my daughter. No parent can get over something like that. But I got through it and I am in fact moving on. I do have a life beyond this blog and I am living it. I will have something to offer my daughter Emilie if she finds me one day. But I am also spending a little time and effort in reminding Emilie’s mother of the consequences of her actions.

And here we are. What would you do if you were in my place? Give up?
