Hello my name is Onarie and I have two boys. One is 13 years old and the other is 4 years old. My 13 son was recently diagnosed Asperger's but now its called Autism Spectrum disorder and ADHD. His Autism is very mild I don't have much support for him. He sees a behavioral therapists once a week. His school works with me as well. So his dad has been around in a few years. My son looks up to his dad and thinks that he can do no wrong. His dad got married in 2009. In 2010 his dad left his wife and moved to Texas and he has been there ever since then. In 2013 my son was going into the 6th grade and the school that he was going to stop the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades classes that use to be at the school. So it was a little ceremony and his dad came up from Texas. My son was so happy. His dad asked me if my son could come down for the summer. I was hasten because I didn't know where is was staying. I talked to my son's father and he gave me all the info that I needed. But in the back of my mind I didn't want my son to go, but I know it would break my son's heart so I allowed him to go for the summer. I had to pay for him to get back home. So I thought this would be great for him to do this every year to go in the summer. Next summer came and we didn't hear much from his father. So this year he started calling a little more and sending my son gifts on his birthday. So this year he asked me if my son could come down for the summer this was on July 26th. I informed him that my son had to start school on the 26th of August. He said no problem he will be back before school starts. It is now the 2nd of September and my son is still in Texas. I can't do anything because no one has custody. I filed for custody and I don't get a court hearing until September 21st. I call my son everyday and he dad has blocked my number so I call from other numbers. When I do get to talk to my son I try not to get emotional because I want to know what is going on. He dad is right next to him so I can't say much and when I talk to his father I get I don't hear you or God Bless you. I can't ask any questions. I tried to inform the school my son was supposed to attend and they tell me that his father has withdrawn him from that school. He did have to be there in person or even show ID, because he faxed the withdraw paper and because his name was on my son's birth certificate it was okay. I don't know what to do!!!!! This has been hell.

Bless your heart! Gosh, this is such a difficult situation. When you say no one has custody, what do you mean? Is it shared? I haven't been in your shoes, but it seems like there has to be an organization that can help you locally? If you need guidance, please call Focus on the Family at 1-855-771-HELP for free counseling over the phone. They may be able to give you names/resources of people who can help in your area. Praying for you
