No one ever talks about the pain a mother endures in losing custody of their child.
Going from caring for them since birth day in and day out, sleeping in the room next to you, hearing their playful ways, giggles, watch them develop their own little personalities, being able to simply say “I love you,” to losing a custody battle, having your child ripped away like they’re a baby doll toy, only allowed 2 days per month for 2hrs in a SUPERVISED BUILDING (if you’re even lucky enough to get that time due to unprofessional ways of the family court services, I’ve only seen my son 3 times in a year..) is a feeling no mother or parent for that matter should ever have to go through. The worst part is that I’ve been hit with outrageous lawyer fees from my ex, child support, travel costs for him to being him to supervised visits, while trying to get back up on my own feet again after losing my mother and dealing with the terrible hardships. I have a vehicle to pay for, insurance, rent, utilities, a phone bill fuel and groceries to take care of and my ex has a family who is financially able to support him in every way leaving him to never know what struggling really is. Here’s the thing tho…my ex has never fought for my son after the breakup 6years ago. I had to fight him to take his son for 2days out of the week. I never went after him for child support and I never bothered him. After my mother passed away I lost everything due to my drinking issues and hung my head to do the best thing and ask my ex to take my son for the school year until I can rebuild everything again. Instead he chose to surprise me with papers temporarily suspending my visits and uses my mental health against me. Unfortunately for me o do not have any kind of money to afford a lawyer and ive been denied the income based or pro Bono lawyers due to making to much money. I have been trying to fight this and save money for myself but I haven’t been able to do so and I am hanging my head now in hopes someone out there would be willing to help me with financial aide to pay for a lawyer and get my visits back. I can’t get the thought of what my son thinks and why I’m not there and why I can’t call or anything out of my head and today I seen my friend hig her little boy and I turned my head and started to cry. I miss the days I could hold my child any time I wanted. Its been almost 2 years now and I am losing out on a lot of life with my son growing and being alienated breaks my heart. I just need some help. In total I would need $5000 but will be completely happy with whatever help anyone is able to give. Please help me to help my son see his mommy again. Please?
