Forgotten Father

by Rodney
(Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada)

I'm a father of one, a beautiful 2 1/2-year-old boy, whom due to the flawed legal system in Nova Scotia, only sees his father 8 hours per week. Without that in mind, I was put up on false charges of physical abuse towards my son. Anyone who knows me or has seen me with my son knows that he is my whole life, my reason for going on through the tough divorce.


I have gotten my name cleared of this atrocity. However, nobody can help me find out who the true culprit of this heinous act is. My soon-to-be ex-wife has two people living with her to watch him while she's at work, and to make sure he cannot see me.

So with my hands legally tied, and one of the three living there hitting my son and covering for each other, what do I do?

I say let the law sit this one out.
