Friends and Family,
I write this today not for my benefit. I am writing this as I feel I have exhausted all options available to aide in my fight. Most of you are familiar with my trials and tribulations in my continued efforts to uphold the rights of my toddler son. For now he is too young to fully know or understand what I am doing for him. However I know in time he will appreciate how hard I have had to fight to stay in his life.
In short, I have initiated family court proceedings against my ex in an effort to ensure that my son has equal access to both his parents. This course of action has shown to be challenging to say the least. Not only have I have dug deep within to find who I truly am, and what kind of father I want to be; but I have stood up and continue through this minefield with my eyes on one goal; Ensuring my son receives the unconditional love and care of both his parents.
I am fighting as best I can, however I have come to the point where this is no longer a fight that I can lead on my own. I am currently seeking to retain legal counsel. Such action I feel has now become essential as I am being faced with an uncooperative respondent who is trying to alienate my son from his father and family. I simply can't let that happen.
The problem I face is that I am already beyond my means in this fight. Continuing will not only ruin me, but take what little I do have from my son.
It troubles me to even ask, as I don't want to be seen as asking for a handout or for charity. I am asking for you to look within your heart and share whatever you can; be it moral, financial, legal counsel, etc.
Any assistance or guidance that you may be able to offer in my situation would be appreciated more than I could ever express.
A desperate father
