Organized by: Linda Wachsberg

THE STORY:

My son, Jeff, and his ex-girlfriend, L, had a baby 25 October 2012. We were all so happy. Leo was 10lbs 8oz, just 3oz smaller than his father weighed at birth. Both families enjoyed watching Leo grow. Jeff often worked 2 jobs so that L could stay home with Leo. In July 2013 L wanted to break up. It got ugly. She disappeared for a while with Leo, but with the help of a lawyer and private investigator, we found her, went to court and Jeff was allowed visitation on his 3 days off. After not seeing his son, nor I my grandson, for over 3 months Jeff decided to throw a small birthday party for Leo since he had missed Leo's first birthday. Leo was so happy to see his father. Every time Jeff would leave the room Leo would get upset. Things seemed to go alright for many months. Jeff saw Leo 3 days/week, I usually got to see him at least one of those days. Jeff's schedule changed and he and L worked out another arrangement. Things did not always go as planned and no holiday schedule had been worked out. Then this past February, 2015, L started to refuse to let Jeff see his son on the court order days and times. There had been no abuse of any kind and no neglect. She has refused to communicate with Jeff and is refusing the parenting time Jeff was allowed according to the judge.  Jeff called the sheriff and was told that he had to take her back to court, which takes money. Jeff did not have the money. Jeff has tried saving money for a lawyer again, but a change of jobs and injuries from a car accident have made that difficult. We are trying to raise these funds to pay a good lawyer. Since this time both Jeff and I, separately have tried to see Leo to no avail. Our entire family misses Leo and I am sure he must be confused about what happened to us, particulary his father. Jeff is a good dad, loves his son, and his son loves him. Please help us get them back together. Jeff would love to have a custody arrangement not just visitation. That is the goal we are working towards. Any amount would be helpful. Please try to make the new year a happy one for my son and grandson. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
