Love with Passion and Perspective
Adele M Lim
Adele M Lim dives into the deep and troubling realities of cross-border divorce and the harsh legalities of child custody. She tells us the emotional stories of several families, including her own, whose already-difficult marital upheaval was further complicated by the regulations of the Hague Abduction Convention (HCCH) of 1980.
Designed to hasten the return of abducted children to their country of habitual residence, the Convention has loopholes when applied to contentious separation cases, despite its positive intent. Adele offers an expansive view that aims at meeting the Convention in light of our evolution as a global village, so that individually and collectively we enable a healthier systemic balance, and heal cross-generational trauma by attending to the family system.
Adele generously shares her personal and professional experiences and knowledge, including both spiritual and practical dimensions for individuals and families to develop their own inner sense of guidance from a deeper place of knowing. This intense but ultimately uplifting read is a must-read not only for those facing cross-border divorce, but for anyone who adopts an international lifestyle, particularly where children are involved.
