Some of you may have read my post about being depressed and raising two special needs boys. My oldest is 7 and his dad has only made half assed attempts to visit. I have begged him to come see his son for the past 8 months with no response. I finally have had it and decided that a court can at least help to get him to be financially helpful. All of a sudden, he wants to pick Haden up and meep him for the weekend. The parenting plan states he needs to give me 48 hour notice to see Haden. I am terrified. I absolutely want them to spend time together. But Haden has medical needs and his dad has NEVER taken care of him alone, much less over night. He has a nurse from 8-6 and I feel that would be a long visit. Haden doesn't really even know his dad! If I could turn time back, I'd rather keep Haden safe and find another way to support us. His dad is using my depression against me, saying I am an unfit mom. Really! I have been the sole provider for both myboys! And he hasnt even visited in the past 8 months! I am depresssed and this is killing me.
