My sons father has been in the military since I met him. The first year of my sons life his dad was never around and this year he got posted to Newfoundland and will be gone for a minimum of 3 years. He barely calls, maybe once every couple weeks to talk to our son. Before he left for his posting we went to mediation and got a court order made up for our custody saying that I had full custody and that he would get him on his leave at Christmas and during our son's time off after school in the summer. Now i got a call last night from him and he asked me if he could take our son for a full year starting next summer and have him go to school in Newfoundland and stay there... Now I had a little melt down and told him absolutely not because the thought of being away from my son for an entire year makes me completely sick to my stomach. I know its important for a child to see their father as well as the mother but a whole year away from his mom? He is my whole world.. am I in the wrong here? I just need advice on how to handle this.
