My fiance, Tom and I have a mixed family of 4 children all together. His sons have the same mother and she had no problem with signing over Isaac (6 yrs) when Ashton (almost 4 yrs) was born, asking Tom to sign an agreement that basically split the boys up... She got to keep her new baby to herself and Tom could "have" Isaac. OBVIOUSLY, my fiance, being of sound mind, would never sign over his child and we've fought so hard to get him every other weekend (while we have Isaac for the school year and she gets HIM every other weekend) She did not argue when it came time to enroll Isaac and it's been so hard for me to watch these little boys constantly be separated...... Now it's time to enroll Ashton in preschool, and Isaac in 1st grade and we have the upper hand. BUT Ashton is so close to his mother, Isaac, Tom and I are just as close... I can't keep them away from each other any longer, court is coming up and we've already been guaranteed 50/50, the judge wants the boys together as well. UGH so my question is..... should we keep the boys with us for the school year and possibly negatively affect Ashton? Or let her have her sons for the school year and negatively affect Isaac and his 2 little sisters??? This just breaks my heart.
