Child Custody for Paetton

Paetton hasn't has a normal life for a few different reason. She has battled cancer for almost 18 months, starting at 9 months old. After she was finished with this fight I started my own fight. Shortly after her power port was removed her mother decided she wasn't happy living with me. This happens and there is nothing that I can do about that. The problem is that she moved 6 hours away and took Paetton with her. As some of you know fighting cancer is not a cheap fight. I was left with no extra money to fight this. I have tried many time to be civil, sometimes this has worked well, anger can get the best of me. I have been fair trying to meet half way but I don't get to talk to Paetton anymore. I haven't been able to hold her in my arms for since she started school. I don't want to take her away from her mother because every child should be with their parent. All I'm seeking is the ability to talk to Paetton hold her and be apart of her life. The sooner I can get funds to get a lawyer the better. Custody battles are not simple and the sooner they get done the better. To be able to talk to Paetton everyday would be one of the greatest gifts I could have right now. Any help I could get would mean the world to me and help a child keep both parents in her life.
