At just 41/2 years old it is devastating enough to experience riding out Hurricane Michael but to then be ripped from your mother & everyone & everything you know & relocated 800 miles away by your father & against court orders is horrendous!
Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read about Kayden and his story and short little life that has been not so easy . It’s with great and unimaginable sadness that we even have this story to share with you at this time . Why you ask ? Because we thought that the past had been overcome . We thought that as a family we all had mended and that everyone was on board with the fact that Kayden needs and deserves both his mom & his dad mutually and equally in his life. We thought that the long journey to effective coparenting had been a journey that had evolved into success . And then came Hurricane Michael ......and the realization that wounds were still deep and that the underlying desire to retaliate was all to alive and that dad could not resist the temptation to hurt Kayden’s mother . So 4 days after Hurricane Michael Kayden’s father jumped in an Uber, made the trip from Panama City to Fort Walton Beach & purchased plane tickets for himself & Kayden and flew 800 miles away . He now refuses to allow mom any physical contact with Kayden , he has violated many aspects of the current child custody court order and vows to not come back. And to be clear Kayden’s mother , extended family and his father still had standing homes . Kayden’s mother in fact was completely untouched by the Hurricane and she made all offers to assist dad during the aftermath of the storm if he needed it. However he required zero assistance and ultimately decided to use the hurricane as an opportunistic manauever to flee with Kayden. Kayden’s father sadly is failing his son and is making his desires to hurt Kayden’s mother more important than Kayden’s emotional well being , stability and overall well being . So now begins a long family court battle to protect and save Kayden from this disaster . And sadly this process is not free . In fact it’s not only not free, it’s horrendously expensive . And please believe that there is nothing that this family wouldn’t do , sell or make happen to pay to make this right . However it’s still not enough . Family court doesn’t care how deep your love is , they don’t care what’s really right or wrong , sad to say it’s all about the money ! Those of you who have experienced the pits of family court know this . These battles can be $30,000 and up. So here we are asking for help . Not for us but for Kayden !!!!
