      Hello, I am Dustin Kent. I am a Registered Nurse and single father. My precious daughter, Adrianna, was taken from me, by her own mother to another country in January 2015. I have been fighting to get her back in custody battles since September, 2014, and have had to take out substantial loans. At the time this happened I was, and still am, considered a New Grad Nurse, and I did not land a job until Jan. 2015. I haven't even begun to spend what I'm going to have to, to fight this internationally. I have a long way to go, and a lot of legal fees and red tape, to get Adrianna back from South America. I just need my sweet pea in my arms again. If anyone could help, it would be immensely appreciated. I know it is hard to understand for those not going through something like this, but it is emotionally, physically and financially devastating. I just want to be reunited with my adoring daughter, and feel it is unfair for a system to make you go into financial death to see your own child again, because it is not in their jurisdiction... Please help! Much love to all, and please keep us in your prayers.

Hello, thank you everyone for the support so far! It has helped. I am still unfortunately being kept in Peru, even though I'm out of jail now, through appeals. I will continue to fight for justice, but I am reaching out to continue to help! I now have rent, living expenses, and ever piling attorney fees (over $100k). I never thought fighting for justice to be a father would be so hard, and expensive. But, when you have a vindictive ex who made false allegations, and lied to the media and police to get you thrown in jail, it doesn't make it any easier or cheaper to fight. I have had so much love and support from close family and friends, but it is unfortunately not enough. Anyone that can find it in their heart to help, would be greatly appreciated. Adrianna I will never give up on you! You deserve to be home, and out of the arms of an abductor, alienator, and psychological abuser. I love you! Much love everyone! Please share if you can't donate!

Thank you for helping to support Dustin! We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of love, concern and financial support during this time!
Here is an excerpt from Dustin's last letter: "I know you are all involved in the efforts to bring me home, and I can't express enough gratitude! I love you all. This is definitely, a trying time in my life. I never thought in a million years that I would be put in prison for trying to be a good father. It is truly heartbreaking that I have been put in this position for trying to do right by Adrianna. All I can hope and pray, is that in the end, justice will prevail for the good."
Dustin is doing well. He is not locked in a cell, he has the ability to wander the prison grounds. He spends his time writing music, drawing, reading and learning Spanish.
Your donations have been going directly to him to cover his expenses while falsely incarcerated. In Peru, nothing in prison is free. The inmates must pay for everything from food and water to renting a cot and making phone calls. Family and friends visiting Peru were able to take Dustin a pillow, blanket, clothes, toiletries and some books.
Please continue to share Dustin's story and make others aware of his situation. You may write to Dustin at Justice4DustinK@gmail.com. If you have not already signed the petition, you will find it at DustinKent.com. Para información en Español en RoseChacon.com.
Once again, thank you for your prayers and support!
With great appreciation,
Dustin and his family

FEBRUARY 2016
My name is Dustin Kent. I am a California resident from Los Angeles, a U.S. citizen, a father, family oriented and a Registered Nurse. I have a huge dilemma regarding my ex-wife and our daughter, Adrianna. My ex abducted Adrianna from Los Angeles on January 21, 2015 and fled to Peru without my consent. She lied in court to try to take my custody away, and when things weren’t going her way, she fled the country. After more than a year of torment, aggravation, devastation and absolute sadness from trying to get my daughter back through the U.S. State Department and the Peruvian Central Authority and it leading no where, I came to Peru to find her myself. Once I located my daughter I obtained her from my ex. My ex called the authorities and alerted the media saying someone else kidnapped her daughter, lying to their faces. Having court documents in hand awarding me full custody of my daughter in the States, I thought I would be OK. But now I’m wrongfully sitting in a Peruvian prison for kidnapping my own child, which is mind boggling and unfair. My hearing is in mid-April and I need support from our U.S. Government to ensure I get a fair and just hearing and prevent my ex-wife’s family, who have ties to government and judicial officials, from intimidating or influencing the outcome of my trial. My ex is trying to decimate me with a 35-year prison sentence when she is the guilty party with warrants and criminal charges in the United States.

Please help in any way possible. I just want to be home in America with my family and get back to life and work.

Thank you all for the support so far. Unfortunately it is a slow process and I am still navigating my way through the legal channels to get my case in front of the Peruvian court. Then it will be months and possibly years of battling in Peru's court. Keeping my fingers crossed for a swift process, but 99% unlikely.
