I simply brought this question to the fore-front due to the fact that I truely contemplated my decision in bringing my son home. Previously that week, my son called his father via cell phone, informing him that he didn't want to visit with him. I followed-up with the communication via a cordial email the following day requesting for my ex to contact my son via phone and discuss these real issues that are concerning my son. My ex failed to respond to my email. Therefore, I followed the court order, and drove the hour down the road to meet my ex. My son has real issues that he needs to discuss one-on-one with his dad, without any distractions. He is aware of this. As a single parent, I, like many others out there, will do everything in my power to protect my child and to provide for my child.
