My wife and I are currently fighting for custody of our son Evan. Evan has no relationship with his biological father, his father walked out on him when he was a baby. My wife begged Evans biological father to establish a relationship with him various times but to no success. Shortly after Evan was born his biological father moved across the country where he continued to act as if Evan did not exist. Evan has no recollection of his father. Evan identified as himself being without a father and experienced a lot of emotional damage which affected his self-esteem greatly.

Once I came into the picture Evan and I created a bond almost immediately! After his mother and I became engaged Evan realized I was here to stay. Shortly after his mother and I became engaged Evan asked me if he could tell me something he simply asked "is it ok if I call you daddy?” I was blown away, not because I wasn’t ready for the responsibility or because I was nervous but because I knew how much he wanted to know he had a father in his life. There was an obvious void he felt in his heart. I replied with "of course I would love to be your daddy" from that moment on he has never addressed me as anything other than "daddy". I told myself I would be his dad and accept all the responsibilities that come along with being a father.

Unfortunately Evan's biological father has just now requested parenting time. Evan just turned 6 and is just now recovering from the emotional damage caused from all those years being without a father. Absent parents typically request parenting time when they want their child support lowered. The request for parenting time is not a sincere request its simply a way for him to keep more money in his pocket. My wife and I dont care about the child support he can keep his money therefore we have hired an attorney to assist us in terminating his parental rights. We have also been working with an adoption agency so I can adopt Evan and become his legal father. My wife and I aren’t trying to sever a relationship between a father and son, rather we are trying to ensure one by I adopting him and terminating his biological father's rights. Evan has a mother and father in my wife and I that love him very much and provide for him. There is no need to complicate his life by introducing someone he doesn’t have a relationship with and abandoned him.

Any and all money raised will be used to assist with attorney and adoption agency fees.
