Please help give Seth the normal life he deserves!
Imagine your deepest fear becoming your reality…. Like the fear of losing a child and having all the odds against you. Well that’s my story, my son has been ripped out of my hands unfairly and I’m determined to fight for him! My son is my life and as his mom I will do whatever it takes to ensure he’s happy, healthy, and safe.
From the moment I became pregnant with my son, Seth, I fell in love instantly. He’s the greatest thing that’s happen to me and I love him dearly. Unfortunately, his father is not the person I thought he was. It was a struggle from the beginning trying to keep my family together, especially when my ex began using drugs.Things progressively got worse, where he was emotionally and physically abusive to me. I did my best to try and change the situation, where I thought my love would be enough to fix it. I was wrong and knew it was time to leave when I saw his abuse spill onto my son. There were countless times where my son just wanted his father’s love, but he was more focused on numbing is own internal demons with drugs. So I gained the courage and left. Seth has seen things no child should ever see, and no child should ever have to be in a situation like this.
After doing the right thing and removing my son and myself from that toxic environment, I was faced with an unfair battle that I wasn’t prepared for. When my ex found out I was enrolling our son in school, he took him and never gave him back. I tried everything to get him back, the only thing to do was to go for custody. My ex was fortunate enough to have his parents pay for a lawyer to represent him in our custody battle, while I wasn’t as fortunate. I did the best I could representing myself, but wasn’t able to compete with someone who spent years in law school. I thought the truth would have been more than enough, but without a lawyer, it was almost as I didnt exist. Anybody that has been to court for a custody battle can understand and relate to the unfair biasness that occurs. It’s the most crippling feeling to watch your child be stolen from you and placed into the arms of a drug addict! There was nothing I could do and I know I have to stay strong for my son, but I truly need help. Please understand that putting my story out there like this is very uncomfortable and makes me feel vulnerable, but I’m here doing it anyways. I’m a mom and I won’t stop fighting until I know my son is safe and back in my arms! I genuinely appreciate you taking the time to read our story and consider helping Seth get out of a hell he should’ve never been exposed to. The money raised here will go to lawyer fees, but more importantly to Seth’s freedom.
Once this is all over, I intend to raise awareness of how the court system places innocent children into the wrong hands. I want to help find ways to help others in this kind of situation and pay it forward. If you are interested or experienced a similar situation, please share your story and what you learned.
Again, thank you so much for listening, I’m very grateful I am finally being heard.
