Hi,

I'm a single mom to an almost 3 year old beautiful baby (okay, toddler) girl. I've been going through a divorce for 14 months, and it is getting flustering being drug out so long. I've essentially been a single parent the entire time, and it has been lonely. My family live far away and my friends are all single or married without kids. I'm looking to meet other single moms that I can develop friendships with. My daughter and I live nirth of Knotts Berrg Farm and I work inext to the John Wayne airport. My saughter and I are HUGE Disney fans. Anyone in the Orange County/LA County bordering areas that could use a new friend, please let me know!!!

I'm so sorry to hear that your ex has taken such action. It I a ploy, plain and simple. Gather character witnesses that can vouch your son was safe at your mothers, and that can also attest to his going there on (what sounds like) a regular and/or yearly trip and that nothing has ever happened to your son while in your mothers home. At the same time, document any and all incidents in which your ex was an unstable or dangerous parent, try to recall dates an details as much as possible. It is better to be over prepared than under prepared as it sounds like your ex is going to play every nasty trick in the book. Keep strong and toe the line so your ex can't say you are a bad mom or an endangerment to your son. Good luck.

Hi Ladies,


 I haven't been in cafemom in a while, but I need to vent and talk to others who are maybe going to the same thing i'm dealing with now.


I'm a newly single mom, dealing with custody issues with my ex/son's father. For last two years, my ex had been verbally abusing me. We had a heated arguement last month, which was the breaking point for me.  After that incident, I felt afraid for myself and my son.  I was scared he was going to kill me or seriously hurt me. I made the decision for me and my son to leave. In a couple of weeks after that incident my son went to my mom's for his summer vacation with her. During that time, I was prepping for myself and my son to move to a safer location.  On last day before I was scheduled to move out of the house we shared. My ex  and his mother drove to my mom's house, which is out of state, with a summons for custody. Luckily it was just a summons and my son didn;t leave with him that day.So I went to my mom's immediately  to make sure my son was safe. A few days later (yesterday) he came back with an emergancy order for custody saying that he didn't know where my son was and that he was in an unsafe enviroment.  He had the sheriff there to issue the order and take my son away from me. I am beyond devastasted. My baby boy is gone!! My mom was taking great care of him and I am not a bad mom.  I love my son dearly and would do anything for him!! (crying while writing this) I have hired a lawyer in the county where the house we shared was and going to fight this bastard for taking my child away from me knowing that the only reason why I left was because it was a unsafe enviroment for my son and I.  I need some prayers as start this difficult journey to get my son back.
