Hi moms. I am a young mom, first time to a beautiful son. I was in a relationship for only 3 mnths before I was pregnant. He flipped out, made an appt. for m to have an abortion and I was going to go too. I couldn't do it thugh and chose life instead. We then continued our relationship for @ another 2 months, clearly it wasn't working. He abandoned me during my pregnancy, never went to any appts., wasn't even there for the birth and I found out when I was 6 months preg. he cheated on me with an ex of his. This is a 44yr old "man" and has a pretty high rank in the army. He was still married to his wife and failed to tell me that until after he found out I was preg. Anyways, he was coming home from Afganistan, we started t talk again bfore this, and I was talking to a family military advocate during his fligt back to the states. Me and her were having a convrsation 1 day and she thought I was sucicidal, which I wasn't and she called the police on me andtold them I took a whole bottle of pills. They made me go to the hospital for observation, I was there for an hr. and was released b/c she gave a false report. 20 min. after I left, he came down with his parents and took my son. My parents fought them and the police, calledmy lawyer and my laweyer said to let them take my son. I still wonder why. There was no custody in place from the courts and possession is 9/10ths of the law. I got home that night and went upstairs to check on my son ad fond his crib empty. I was slapped in the face, punched in the stomach and stabbed in the heart atg the same time. This was a year ago and I still don't have my son. And 2700.00 later an my lawyer is doing nothing. I am told what t do at anytime with anything concerning my son, he got full custody, he makes my life a living hell, I a under supervision a all times wen I am w/ my son, and I have lost all hope. This consumes me all day, everyday. I am in so much pain. I have so much anger as well. Any advise from nyone. I also feel like a failure b/c I failed my son, my only child. How could people do this to other people?
