Sebastian is counting on mommy to bring him home.

I found a very legitimate organization based out of California that helps low income families get custody papers legalized to present to a family court. This is to petition the court, in North Carolina, to get back  Sebastian back from his father, who obtained him illegally, and has alienated him from me. This means, his father's abusive characteristics are affecting our son now. His narcissism felt it necessary to obtain our son illegally, due to the fact that his criminal record, and bad character would have made it almost impossible to gain visitation or custody. Had he petitioned the court legally to do those things, he would not have looked very good in court, so he made it appear legal, but all n all; did it "dirty". All that have met Brandon know that he has not been a good person to me, and has not been a good father to Sebastian. And now he continues to spread lies about to me, to my 40252750_1561739812833696_r.jpegfamily, to justify his actions. The urgency to get this completed; and for me to afford help, is to make sure my loving son is not exposed to his father's abusive tendencies, and remains good, happy, smart, and loving. My son and I have a bond stronger than I have ever felt. Our understanding of each other's needs are based on intuition and communication. I am in the need of assistance from an outside source that won't cost as much as a family lawyer. The organization called About The Children LLC do just that. I have to make a down payment of $98 to obtain my first set of questions. They are then, turned into legal documents. When I get to the $400 payment mark, I will receive my full packet of questionares regarding my custody case. I can submit documents, such as Brandon's criminal record, his falsified home study, and the past criminal record of his live-in girlfriend; whom I don't know, and neither does the organization that messed up while placing Sebastian with them. I need to pay a total of $998 to allow this helpful resource to locate ,and petition a North Carolina family court house. One that will allow me to appear in custody court via telephone conference calling. I am in possession of all required documents to go forward with a CPS suite as well. However, my first priority is to get my son home. No government agencies have been able to help me with that, not even the FBI. I searched without abandon, spent hours of researching, and finally found the organization that will facilitate my custody case. I am listed as the custodian to Sebastian still. There are no documents that gave his father custody. He is 'invisible', as of now. It has been the most heartbreaking reality I have endured. Being paralized, diagnosed with stage IV cancer, loosing my and family and contact with them.  Being abused by the child protective services, and not having heard Sebastian's voice in over 7 months now, have been overwhelming and almost broke me. The hope that justice will prevail, being reunited with Sebastian, and the fact that good always trump's evil, are the driving forces ;that has kept me afloat. I now am asking for help from my real family, my friends. Please do not hesitate; if you have had to endure this in your life, or have been witness to the corrupt CPS (can't protect shit) first hand, or through a loved ones struggle- to donate to my cause. Those who know me, realize that my son is my everything and I would never jeopardize his safety, so in doing that, I must extract him from where he is. As much as I want to go there, take him, and run, has been pressing on my mind. This may do more damage and I believe in the organization that I am accessing, to facilitate the legal defense needed to get this goal of mine, taken care of. I am not one to ask for help, and to this day, nobody has offered. Now is when I really need help. Please feel free to look up the organization, or read my blog ( to gain a better idea of this real experience I have endured, that has trumped all experiences in my life up till now. Thanks for your support and love and prayers. They have brought me to find this hopeful and helpful organization, I don't know what I can do other than this avenue, to assure Sebastian's return in a timely manor. The goal would be to get him back into my care before his next year of school that starts in late August. Thank you ahead of time for anything you can do to facilitate my son's return to his mother and sole provider for most of his life.
