Jason's fight for his kids
Organized by: Jason McCauley
My name is Jason I have two beautiful boys. I am a very hands on dad unlike most fathers today. I was brought up knowing that a good father takes care of his family. For the past seven years I was engaged to a women that used me and manipulated me. I worked a full time job as an electrician and when I would come home she would be on the couch watching tv which she would do everyday all day long. When I got home I would clean the house, do laundry some days, make dinner for the family, give the boys a bath, and put them to bed. She refused to get a job and help me out. She is bipolar and not taking her medicine. I was unaware of what she was doing during the day while I was at work I had bad feelings most days but couldn't prove it or maybe I just didn't want to believe it. For the past year she was cheating on me and using heroin. In March of 2016 she filed out paper work to get life insurance in my name that would pay her $300,000. She even forged my mothers signature on it and I believe her intentions were to take my life and make it look like a suicide. On April 6th I woke up in the hospital. I had no idea how I got there but I had been stabbed in the chest twice and was told they found a suicide not next to my body. Even tho the doctors told me it was impossible for someone to stab themselves twice in the chest they kept me for 3 weeks. I was not able to prove that she did it and even tho it is still under investigation I feel like she will get away with it and make me look bad when we go to court about the kids. In April 2016 just a few days after being taken to the hospital she left me for her heroin dealer. The house I had bought us in 2008 is in forcloser I fell behind on the payments because she was buying drugs with my money instead of paying the bills like I assumed she was. She was hiding the mail from me that would have informed me of the unpaid bills so it came as a surprise when I lost everything. I am now living with my mom about to file bankruptcy while my ex fiancé is living with her drug dealing boyfriend in a known gang house. She is going to a methadone clinic and intensive outpatient rehab to make herself look good. But she knows when she has to take a drug test and is only clean 3 to 6 days a month the rest of the time she is able to keep injecting heroin. I'm afraid of the courts seeing her as a fit parent and not me. I'm working so hard to save money for court to fight for my kids but I'm barley making enough money to pay for the boys to stay in daycare, keep them feed, and paying other bills like the car payment and insurance. At the end of the month I'm left with about $100. Unfortunately drug dealers make a lot more money then I do. My sons won't have a chance at a good life with her. Even when we were together she was not a good parent. She would yell at the boys for no reason and blame it on her bipolar disorder. I pray to god every night for a miracle. Unfortunately my family is unable to help me out because my sister has a son that was born with a rare birth defect and is needing a stomach transplant. Please help me I dont want my boys growing up around drugs and violence.
