Belle Meraki Volume 4

DRIP LOVE: A Mother’s Journey Through Parental Alienation by B’elle Meraki


B’elle Meraki is a pseudonym chosen to protect my child’s identity. Though I feel comfortable telling my story, I don’t believe it’s fair (or a good parenting practice) to tell her story. That’s for her to do if she ever feels the need. Having said that, the experience of telling my story in such a public way has been an incredible gift.

The Greek word Meraki means to do something with passion, from the heart, with absolute devotion, with undivided attention, a labor of love. If you knew the real me, you would know that is how I have parented all my children throughout the years. When I set out to tell my story, I did so intending to tell it in the same spirit I raised my family and hope that someone who had similar experiences would benefit from knowing that they are not crazy and are not alone.

For the most part, I have lived a charmed life. I was raised by parents who taught me the importance of working in service for others, which led to my calling as a foster parent for over two dozen children.

I had numerous jobs and careers but fostering was by far the most fulfilling of all. Beyond the opportunity to open my home and heart for children at a time when they needed it, I also was able to advocate for families and children who were struggling with the child welfare system.

I have been blessed with three daughters, two grandchildren, and the best third husband ever!

Our love story began when we were six years old, and after a 40+ year break, we were reunited on my 50th birthday. His love and support were instrumental in my survival of Parental Alienation, and I will be forever grateful that he was brought back into my life when he was.

“You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.”
