I have been very busy lately taking care of some things for my household so I haven't updated as much. Thank you all so much for continuing to share this around while I have been taking care of the family!

I would like to thank my followers and donators again for your kindness and support. We are getting closer and building an even stronger case every step of the way. There are a lot of good positive things happening with our family this year, lets have improvement with this situation be one of them. I know this will take time, and it will be a long process.

My family is about to enter into what we believe will be a difficult battle for custody of my son, R. He currently lives with his father in Minnesota in what we consider unsuitable conditions.

I currently live in Texas with my husband who is active-duty Army, four of our children and two dogs. Unfortunately I left Minnesota because I did not feel safe, and at the time I was forced to leave R with his father. Because I was leaving under such distress, and there was such a drastic difference between my financial means and those of R’s father (and his family), I felt there was no way I could take R with me. And I felt coerced into signing a custody agreement that I’ve since come to wholeheartedly believe is not in the best interest of my child.
R’s father comes from a family with means. I do not. Based on past implications, I believe that his family will support him in this custody fight. Because our income is much less than R's father, we are seeking the support of others to aid us in our goal of Full Custody of R.



Because of a pattern of behavior, and because we feel we can provide a better environment for R, my husband and I have determined that the best course of action is to seek Full Custody of my son. R needs a home in a SAFE stable environment. He needs to be with his siblings. He needs to be receiving an education and therapy. He is such a brilliant, sweet, loving little boy, and I know he will be so much happier – and healthier - with his family here.

Unfortunately, we do not have the means to fund this fight alone. Travel expenses to attend court in Minnesota, combined with Attorney costs and legal fees will cost much more money than we are able to fund by ourselves.

Please help me give my son a better life.
