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
