Your story just breaks my heart! I also cannot understand the reason behind Heather not letting you see the child and be a part of his life. I'm a mother of three and nothing is more precious to me than my children and I know every parent feels this way. I wonder if she understands that when Caleb grows up and discovers you this might backfire on her. He will have missed so many years with his loving father in his life. It's so sad! I am taking a Family Law course right now and forwarded the link to your site and to the article in the Press to all my classmates because we've been discussing issues like parental rights. When I read this article this morning it made me wonder how well I might do in the area of Family Law because it appears there is so much injustice here in Michigan with a situation like this. I pray that the Michigan Supreme Court finds in your favor and gives your son his father.

I just read your story in todays Grand Rapids Press. I asked my husband had he read it, and he said he did. We both are very saddened to hear your struggle with obtaining your rights as a father. Caleb is truly blessed with a wonderful Dad. And what a adorable little boy Caleb is (providing these are his pictures on your site). Personally, I just don't undertand WHY? His mother wants to cause him this kind of harm, by denying him your love. Is it really a decision she is prepared to live with?, Does she not think this will back fire on her? How would she feel if the tables were turned. I am a mother of three boys, my eldest from my first marriage. Though my eldest son has a long distance relationship with his father. I am greatful he at least has that with him. Our family will be praying for you and Caleb. I will also be praying for your ex-girlfriend (Caleb's mother) -Praying that her heart will be touched by the grace of God. And that she will be moved by the Holy Spirit to do what would be pleasing to God. LOVE AND ACCEPT LOVE FOR HER SON! Best wishes, Remain strong. I am forwarding this website to family & friends, and I have contacted legislation.

  Bill, I am so sorry that you are going through this. This actually makes me sick to my stomach that the laws are so stupid and would keep a loving Dad from his child.
I am a single mother of 2 from Michigan and am very lucky that my kids Dad is involved in my kids lives, although not as much as I think he should be.
I will keep you and Caleb in my prayers. Good Luck

  Bill-I just want you to know you are in my prayers.Keep fighting!

I would like to ask all the people signing the guestbook to write a letter to Larry King,Oprah and CNN -and ask that they interview Bill and share his story with the nation.

It is so important that this story become headline news!This is a complete ourage,that this law exsists and that Bill has no access to his biological child.

  I wonder if the mother and the father got a divorce, the father would say that he WASN"T the baby's father and then a paternity test would be done. Then when the courts find out that he isn't the father then they will go after the REAL father for child support. The court would probably make him pay back support from the time of the child's birth. That is how messed up the Michigan court system is.
Keep fighting for your rights!!!!!

We are keeping you in our prayers. This is so wrong. Your rights and Calebs rights have been taken away by someone so selfish, and a law which was meant to protect only harms.
I can't imagine why your ex would do this. So many of us single moms would give anything for our childrens fathers to have half the interest you have in your son!

Keep fighting! One day it will pay off! Caleb feels the love you have for him, even if it is from afar.

  I want to tell you to keep up the fight! Of all of the parents in this world that want nothing to do with their children it's a crime to keep a man away from his son in this way... I can understand abusive relationships.. but this definately seems more like she's off her rocker to me...
In my situation I have a 3 yr old daughter who has a WONDERFUL father... and yet I'm a single mom.. the only relationship I have with my daughter's father is friendship... I consider myself a VERY lucky single mom that her dad is SO involved and SO supportive... but he too has a son that is being kept from him... he didn't even know of his son's existance until he was about a yr old.. and so I can see where you are coming from completely... and it saddens me that this woman would do this... I can almost guarentee you that even if you let this go.. she will regret ever doing this...but probly not until it's too late for a "normalish" relationship with your son... but the harder you fight, the sooner she will regret... and the sooner she will come to see what a great man you are... and how much you love your son simply because he is...
Good Luck.. my thoughts are with you.. and my words will follow you... you will know your son at some point in life... just hopefully sooner rather than later....good luck again...
