Virtual Visitation

By Deane Barker on February 28, 2006

‘Virtual’ visits for children of divorce: On the one hand, this is great. On the other hand, it’s not.

Divorce put David List and his 2-year-old daughter on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and he worried that she would soon forget him.

She hasn’t, though. List’s divorce agreement guaranteed him “virtual visitation” — the chance to talk with his daughter through an Internet video connection — and he and Ruby Rose, now 5, usually connect at least twice a week.
