A VERY broken system...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

We live in a system that is more interested in the rights of one parent over that of a precious child who cannot protect himself. Such a travesty. My heart goes out to you and your husband during such a trying time. Keep believing that the resources you need are there; resources that will keep your stepson safe from harm. I send you, your husband and your stepson nothing but positive energy, and I thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

It is the same the world over
by: maurice

We have the same idiotic system here in Ireland evn around where I live now and where I lived throughout the country. I lived in UK, I lived in NZ There is one accessmnet procedure and though ancient it is still relevant for the powers to be to still use. I sure feel for where you and your husband is with his child. Darlene as always has given you positive thoughts and I like the way she puts it she send you her positive energy in the hope wrongs will be righted in your situation. Likewise keep hope alive the truth of the situation of the child mothers will be found out. Don't Quit. when you feel your at your lowest ebb then the only way back is up. Please don't highlighting the wrongness in it all. 2 different states will mean a longer process in sorting it all out. be patient the good always wins through.
