I very seldom ask people for help, but I'm asking today. My youngest daughter, ThinkthinB, is going to court today to settle custody for her 5 year old son. She and his dad were never married and had split up before Kody was even born. The dad has shown minimal interest in him all these years even though Becky has encouraged them spending time together. The last year he has spent more time with him but he is super super strict and occasionally very mean. He married a few months back and his new wife spanked Kody so hard that she left bruises on his little body. Kody cries every single time she tells him that he's going to his dads. Now all of a sudden he is taking Becky to court for partial custody. The things he is demanding are absolutely crazy, but I suppose given the right judge, he could possibly be granted some of them. If he gets his way, he will have him more than Becky does! She's a wonderful mother and they have such a close bond since it's just been the two of them for 5 years. It will crush both of them if his dad gets his way in all this. I totally understand that Kody needs time with his dad but only if it is loving time. Please,please say a little prayer for them. They go to court at 1:30 this afternoon. Pray that they get a caring and compassionate judge that will divide the time fairly between the two of them.
