My daughter has lived with me since birth, her father and I have never been to court, he is on her birth certificate. We live in Illinois, my daughter had an accident while visiting with him. She was left in the care of his girlfriend and fell off of the bed and smacked her face on a weight lifting bar that was placed next to the bed. This is not the first injury she has received in her care but it is her first trip to the ER. As a result she had to have surgery to remove four teeth that were shoved up in to her gum. She is doing fine now, and healing nicely. I had to pay for the speaciaiist, she has all kids insurance so that paid for the surgery itself. I told her father that she was not going to spend the night for awhile, and then he exploded. I had spoke to my daughter, before her surgery and she was the one who asked me if this was ok. I was not going to stand there and allow her father and his girlfriend to verbaly attack me so I told him to get a lawyer. I live with my mom and have had to go on food stamps in the past. I am looking for work, and do odd jobs that I can find to provide for my daughter. Is there any way I can lose my daughter? Please help, I will do anything to provent this.
