I couldnt imagine not waking up to my daughter every morning. I haven't went a day without her since she was born, her father on the other hand has been weeks without seeing her or even so much as asking about her. He has been abusive to me and has even grabbed me by my hair and tried to throw me to the ground while i was holding me 3 month old daughter. I have pictures of bruises he has left on me, more than once. . most recently leaving 18 bruises (that i could count). We got into a fight on easter and thats when he left atleast 18 bruises on me and body slammed me, all infront of my daughter. He even took her easter basket that we both paid for and the easter dress that i got her and her food and left. I off course packed mine and her stuff and left. (and this wasn't the first time).
I blocked his number because he had been harassing me . He had asked to come visit our daughter and i said yes, if you bring me her food . he told me i was being childish so i told him that it was the same thing as child support. . if he didn't help me with her he had no right to her. He said he gave up on her.
Today i got a text from his mother saying they were getting a lawyer to take my daughter. I told her i had proof of the abuse and she said she had proof i had hit him which is not true. the only time i touched him was in self defense when he tried hurting me with my daughter in my hands. and then all i did was scratch him.
What do i do? im a stay at home mom and i cant afford a good lawyer. They on the other hand have a great lawyer that has kept him out of jail more than once.(all drug or alcohol charges).
I have been so depressed and i literally had a panic attack when i got the text from my ex's mother. I am being strong for my daughter but it is so scary and hurts so much!!!
