I used to be a member here but was somehow removed- possibly from lack of activity- BUT I have been in a rather serious crisis for the past 14 or so months. I have had to live without my children for over a year now and my (abusive) ex has my children... he got a TRO against me when I fled with them to a women's shelter. He used extremely twisted evidence to get them away from me which gave him the TRO regarding Gregory's frenulum incident and called it "failure to thrive" which the drs. were just itching to do. He also said that they were in "immediate and irreparable damage" in my care- which is UTTERLY UNTRUE!!!! I feel as if I have been so close to literally falling apart emotionally-speaking without my Babies. They really need me. I am their mommy and I don't know how they are coping without me in their lives. I know I am not coping without them in my life. I am trying to get legal assistance but have no money. Partnership's hands are tied by red tape and have been unable to help me because of the TRO... to add to the agony of it all is that the drs. DID force me to wean Gregory before either of us were ready to wean. I hope you BF'ing moms would understand my anguish... I did pump every drop I could for him a year ago but Ex was obviously not wanting to give him the milk. But being without my Babies is UTTER AGONY for me!!!
This picture was taken on the only occasion I have seen my children since December 6, 2012- when BJ (just over 5 years old at the time) and Gregory were ripped away from me. Gregory was literally pulled out of my arms at the age of 15,5 months and I was not even allowed the visitation the judge arranged for me in the TRO. Please- no malicious comments about me! I need legal help and have no money. I am absolutely desperate by speaking about this problem on any public site.
BJ (6 years old in this picture) literally leapt into my arms the first time he had seen me in over 8 months at that time. It has now been 6 months almost to the day (Feb 18' 2014 will be 6 months) since we saw each other last. I do NOT count "Skype" as a "visit" it is utterly cruel to not be able to hold my children and comfort them and interact with them in a normal one-on-one basis and it is so far from what the judge ordered.
This is the most recent picture I have of them...
