The story in detail
Some background on the story
OP discovered that her ex came by their daughter’s daycare and tried to secretly pick the little girl up
OP had to stay with her daughter throughout the day, at the detriment of her job. In addition, she faced insults from her ex for being ‘inconsiderate’
We gathered some reactions from Netizens:
“Make sure the daycare and even Lila's school know that he isn't to be allowed to even see them, let alone pick them up for any reason.”
“Having signed his rights away he is lucky he isn't up on kidnap charges for trying to take your child without consent.”
“NTA. So it's YOUR fault that he cheated, had children by another woman, abandoned his other kids, and now he's missing his daughters.”
“NTA He signed away his rights, he doesn’t get to see them. You did nothing wrong.”
“NTA. Your Ex signed away his rights. Now he claims he misses these two children? Is he really that clueless?”
“I'd rip daycare a new one. They were about to let him take her without permission....so anyone can just kidnap any of these kids?!”
Redditors emphasized that OP’s reaction was spot on. Her ex-husband's attempt to barge in and pick Gaia up after signing away his rights was audacious—he’s lucky he isn’t facing kidnap charges.
They commended her for standing her ground and even suggested informing the daycare staff to prevent any future attempts. In their eyes, OP's ex is the inconsiderate one, not her.
