Help me get my twins back
Organized by: Jasmin Serrano
First of all, let me start by saying thank you. No words can describe how much I'm grateful for at least taking the time to read my story.
I have 9 yr old twin boys back in the Philippines that I have been fighting my rights for in a long time. To make the long story short, got pregnant when I was 18, and baby daddy didn't want to look for a job. I left my twins behind to get a job here in CA, thinking it was the most sacrificial, yet best decision to make for my kids. I left them few days before they turn 2, found out baby daddy cheated and was milking me the whole time, and end up breaking up. He was not happy with the break up because he wanted me to bring him here in the US, and kept my kids away from me. I have not seen my kids until they were 5 yrs old, when I was able to save up money for my ticket, money for bills while I'm gone, money to pay the lawyer and to file my custody case, and spending money for two months. I was not able to win the full custody as I was not staying in the Philippines, but I was very happy that I got involved with my kids' lives again and was able to Skype them every week. A yr later, the baby daddy and his family took my kids away and threatened that they can destroy my family's lives. I cannot do anything but cry and pray because I'm far away and cannot do anything about the situation. Now my kids are turning 10 in July 23rd, 2016, and I'm still here trying to save up money for years to fight for them. Life happens and it's been hard for me to save up even just for my ticket, let alone for my bills and other expenses I will be having to fight for my right. My time is ticking really fast, yet I've been moving slow. I haven't had a connection with my kids for years. I don't know if they remember me or if the baby daddy and family have already turned their hearts against me. I really wanted to make a step towards being with my kids again, and I have to admit I cannot do this alone. I need help.
