Get Baby Orion back to his mother

Orion Ermias was born November 15, 2019 I realized the effects of losing my dad in 2018, another loved one two months prior to me giving birth to a beautiful son who just so happens to have the same birthday (11-15) and the idea of a family unit being out of the window with my child’s father that I was crying more than usual. I felt like I was having symptoms of post partum depression (which I was later diagnosed with a mild case). I went into labor a day after picking up a uhaul to move into my new place.. while I was in labor (3 weeks early) my family had to get together and move my belongings into my new apartment, which in itself was a strenuous/stressful process. I am currently battling HIV as well, so the fact that I was unable to breastfeed at Orion’s birth made me feel like less of a woman. I have been trying to live a normal life for the sake of my 3 babies Amauri (10) Adonis (2) and this new addition Baby Orion (1 month old). So if you can imagine I feel the weight of the world is on my shoulders at times. On Saturday 12-7-19 His father took it upon himself to keep him after our verbal agreement was that he’d drop him off the very next day. His father has since kept the baby away from me even after I’ve received medical clearance. Post partum depression happens all too often, but that is no reason to keep a newborn baby away from his mother, it is quite more normal than some would think. It requires support, and understanding. It has now been almost two weeks since I’ve touched my baby’s face, changed his diaper, held him, bathed him, smelled the similac on his breath....I’ve exhausted phone calls to the authorities, and trying to reason with the father. I’ve taken the steps to seek help with the postpartum, through counseling, seeing a psychiatrist, as well as my OBGYN. All have stated: “ that’s no reason to keep the child from his mother.” Understandably a child needs both parents, but in this case the father is just being vindictive now. Please help me get my baby home safely before the holidays. His father has blocked all points of contact from me. (He won’t send pictures, Face Time or anything!) Ultimately I can’t go into too many details for pending legal reasons, but I really miss my baby, and would like to have him in my arms again. Orion is only 4 weeks old. It’s not fair, but I will do everything in my power to have him returned! I have two other children who keep asking where their brother is, and when someone asks where my newborn is, my heart sinks to the pit of my stomach. I don’t wish this pain on anyone. Anything helps! I need to retain the family attorney to help me through this nightmare. Thanks in Advance
