Saving Baby Rian

This Gofundme was set up Not for money but to be able to share the entire story of what happened with a timeline and photos and documents. (Cant do all that stuff on a facebook page like this format) Do NOT Donate as Money does no good nor do I need it. Shares & Prayers will be the best help you can give. Together we can reunite Baby Rian with his Father who loves and misses Baby Rian so very much.

I removed most of what I Originally  posted because it was negative. We need to be positive instead. So story is after update.

UPDATE 4/21/2020

Many of you know that over a year ago The Mother of my child took off with my son. Why? we were not getting along and fighting with one another. She didn't want me to take him from her. I was in the Court system with a open case and did every Legal thing I could possibly do. I was mad.. Full of hate. Never felt hate before. But I was full of it. I started Saving Baby Rian and Finding Corrie Marino Full of Anger I went on a Mission to find them. I had soooo much hate inside me I felt like nobody in this world could ever hate again Because I have all the hate of the world inside of me. Where is my Son Dammit!

Then in my search for my 3 year old Son.. God from above Opened my eyes to The Much Bigger Picture and The Evil all around us. It is so bad, and So much PURE EVIL. Your mind will have a very hard time accepting the truth because everything we grew up to know and think what is real... Is all a BIG LIE

Now, after I found out what is happening with our children and the TRUE Ungodly evil that is Really and truly on this earth... I No longer have any hate in my Heart. The Evil of what they are doing to our children Saving The Children(Millions of Children worldwide) is much more important then me being upset at my childs Mother. I no longer have any hate in my heart. I no longer am mad at Corrie Marino. The Only thing I want for the Both of them is their Safety, well being and protection of God's Angels around them.

I have changed the website and placed happy pictures.. love and peace..
The entire Secret(But was never a secret) We are God's children. He gave us the Gift of free will. It's all in what we say out loud with our voice. All you have to do is say and talk out loud (more to come on this latter)

If you want to Wake up.. all you have to do is say out loud.. "Jesus open my eyes so I can see the truth.". and you will see what I see.

Once you See the True Evil of the World happening around us and Under us. There is no going back. You cannot "Unsee it" I could care less about my reputation or if you think I lost my Mind. I see it.. . This isn't about me or even you.. This is all about #SavingTheChildren. Once you see it do not be afraid.. (IT) feeds off of Fear.. We must have faith in God.. faith destroys fear.

May GodBless you all..

You are not alone!

It all began on  a mid-Summer day. It was on June  24th 2017.
I received  a Text message with a picture of a Baby  Boy from his mother Corrie L Marino.

She Said "You have a son. He is 3 months old. His name is Rian River. What do you want to do?"
40633440_1563201102308083_r.jpegI was speechless, Excited & Nervous all at the same time. I said to Corrie, let's meet!  So we did. The picture below is me seeing Baby Rian for the first time.
40633440_1563231986286599_r.jpegMy Life from that moment on was forever changed in  such a Beautiful Loving Manner.  At first I was shocked and didn't know what to buy.
40633440_1563244009905427_r.jpegI moved to St Pete to be closer to my son living only a mile and a half away from Baby Rian.  We spent a lot of time together.  Baby Rian was my sidekick!   Any free time I had I always tried to spend with Baby Rian.
I was amazed at how much Baby Rian would stare at me.  He always would look at me. Whenever I looked at him, there he was...  just staring at me,  with his beautiful Blue eyes.
40633440_1563233520268764_r.jpegBaby Rian and his mother came over to see the place I was moving into in St Pete. I would teach Baby Rian new sounds (0:20).
Father and son time was always Special. We would spend time getting to know each other. We even had our father and son talks together.. I just couldn't wait till Baby Rian could really say words and sentences. 
On January 12th 2018 I was blessed with being able to film Baby Rian taking his first steps walking (Min 1:20)
Then, one day in February of 2018, his mother, Corrie L Marino was upset with me. She wasn't letting me see my son.  I knew I had to take action and do whatever needed to be done legally, so I could claim  Baby Rian as my son and never have to have his mother do this again to Baby Rian. 

"A father in a child's life is as important as his Mother being in his life."

So on February 28th 2018 I  Filed  in Florida with the Pinellas County Court a PETITION FOR PATERNITY Case #18-001907-FD 

It  has been a very slow moving Process in the court system.  Over the next year, things were going well. It seemed like his mother would let me see Baby Rian almost everyday. I was there for Baby Rian on his 1st birthday!
40633440_1563241194964362_r.jpegI was able to take Baby Rian on his first Hay Ride!
We did everything Together.....
40633440_1563243882451733_r.jpeg Baby Rian came over to the house to be the Muffin Man and help Daddy make Muffins..
I was able to take Baby Rian Swimming. We would go to parks all the time. Run around and go to Family events. Baby Rian loves Music and most of all He loves to dance!
Time was flying by and Baby Rian was getting much Bigger.  December 2018 was here and Corrie Marino, Baby Rian and myself moved in to live together.  We made the best out of our situation and shared Christmas together as a family. I couldn't be happier. We were a Family!
40633440_156324496252892_r.jpegFebruary  23rd 2019 Corrie Marino moved out from St Pete to Lakeland Florida with my Son, Baby Rian.  I found out where Corrie Marino took Baby Rian and I sent a text to that person. I explained to that person in Lakeland what happened with Corrie and why I was so very upset.

Corrie Marino became quite upset with me  for texting her friend and telling them about her and cut all ties and communications with me.

My Sadness Grows Heavy With Each Passing Day. Tears fill my eyes as time ticks on. The hurt of cruelty overwhelms my sorrow in disbelief. What can a Father do not knowing where or how his precious Son lays his head at night.

Together, We are going to find & Save Baby Rian.. I will never give up until he is in my arms again...

Psalm 127:3-5
"Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court."

The picture below was sent to me by his mother Corrie L Marino the day after she left. She says he's having the time of his life.
Looking at this photo what do you think?
This is the last known photo taken of Rian River on Feb 24th 2019
Aug 1st 2019 was my last Court date. I am not on the birth certificate. There is no DNA test. There is nothing else the Court will do until I can locate where Corrie Marino and baby Rian are at. 


40633440_1563250870632917_r.jpeg This is about all of us working together for the Love of a innocent 2 year old child that can not choose on his own to be with his father. 

I have truly done everything a non married father could do.

I  setup  Facebook pages,

Saving Baby Rian 

Finding Corrie Marino 

A website Saving Baby Rian 

A Nationwide hotline phone:

Have you seen Corrie Marino?

I also am not trying to take Rian away from his mother. I need to know that Baby Rian is safe and being taken care of. I need to be in that child's Life.
Baby Rian is talking and saying sentences right now and I have not heard my son talk.

Please help me find my son Baby Rian.

"Saving Baby Rian".
