Today is my 41st birthday and on the 9th of October it was my 32 anniversary of being diagnosised as a diabetic. On the 8th of October my son was kidnapped by his father, still working on that and trying to get him back where he belongs, with no hlep from law enforcement, no the County Attorney is involved as well as a very good attorney. My husband is gone hauling cattle, when you own a business you have to go when the calls come in. It sucks, I am so sad and being alone on my birthday really sucks.

happy belated birthday Margo. So sorry, and I am still praying for you daily. I have a long list where I write down the names and needs of the person. So sorry your birthday has been during all of this, I know it couldn't have been a very good one, and I hope next year is the best yet and you get him back real soon

I am so sorry to hear what happened to you. Happy Birthday a late one at that. Sorry to hear what happened with your son. I hope they find him really soon. I wish you a speedy recovery. May God Bless you and your son. I will pray for you. You sure have been put through enough and don't need no more. Wish there was something I could say to make you smile but I know right now your very upset. Just know there are a lot of people here praying for you and your son with that in mind the good Lord should hear our prayers and bring him home soon to you. Big Hugs! God Bless!

Thank you stormz. I appreciate all the prayers and thoughts and I set and talk to God everyyday. May God Bless and Keep you.

margokittycat it's nice that you thanked everyone. Your taken your mind off your problem at least for a little bit and that does help and that is what we are here for. God will hear all our prayers I'm sure. I recently saw his work in action. A friend of mine was shot in a home invasion and he survived. When I say he was shot I mean in the face shot. He did lose one eye but when you compare that to living that is nothing. We are all grateful he is alive. So I know God hears our prayers. I will keep praying for you and your sons safe return. Smile for you do not know what tomorrow will bring. God Bless!!

Thank you sabe32…I'm really glad though it's not my birthday I dread getting older. Not because I feel old because I don't. Your only as old as you feel. Which is a good thing because I only feel hmmm 25. I'm being modest because that is half my age. I'm just a very positive person who believes that we can help our self's first before we can help someone else. First we have to fix what is wrong with us then we can help others is what I mean. Always walk with God and you will have Angles watching over you forever. God Bless.

Margo, happy birthday! I know you don't have a lot to be happy about right now. I am sorry that this has happened to you. I will keep you in my thoughts. And I am glad you are a part of our community. Stay connected with us! You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry, Margo, that is a lot of sadness to have happen in your life. I'm glad you have the Country Attorney involved along with your attorney. Familial kidnapping does seem to be rather lower on the police's priority list, but it surely causes lots of pain to the family members. I'll keep you in my prayers and we'll all hope for a positive outcome with your son soon to be returned home. Let us know when he is back!

How old is ur son, seven or eight? I know how angry u must be with the police about doing absolutely nothing about it, on aug 11th of this year I was violenty raped by my nxt door neighbors ex-husband who was staying with her who wasn't even supposed to be there and the law enforcement here in siskoyous county did absolutely nothing to serve him the restraining order which had been extended three times due to non servement and bcuz I had no car or money for the bus to get bak & forth 2 court in yreka & I live in mccloud, I had 2 drop the case. Then on top of things we ended up with a 60day notice on the 24th of aug saying that we had 2 be out of our apt. By oct 25th. So I was being punished when it shuldve been the suspect and his ex-wife for allowing him to stay there over the 14 day lease agreement. We also called a lawer, Hudd, Valley Fair(apt. Owners) and none of them seemed to care, or they only took the managers side or they didn't handle these kind of cases. And at the time we didn't know where we were going 2 live we were going 2 be on the streets in the dead of winter, then by the grace of GOD four days b4 we had 2 be out of our apt we got a house with a 2 bdrm a lg strge shed a lg. Front & backyard a surrounding fence w/front & back gate & a one car garage with another spot next to the garage and 2 more spaces in front of our home. We even have a wood stove, monitor heater, electric wall heater and our new neighbors helped us out with some wood. GOD has been truly gracious to us. I still have nightmares of the rape and still don't feel safe but with GOD's help I'm getting through. So I know that he will help u too and if u need any help at all just let me know, send me pics of ur son & I will post them up everywhere up in my county with all of ur information or mail me flyers instead which will be easier and I'll do it asap. I will also announce it to my local church. I'm praying for you and your family. Hang in there and don't GIVE UP!!! MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!

I am sorry to hear about your encounter and what happened with it. I too have been there in your shows I was raped and by a step father at the time. I was 10 and it went on for 3 years. Nothing ever happened to him. My son is 17 but has Aspbergers and is mentally a 9 year old. Aspbergers is like Autisim. We know where my sone is at his dad took hm and went across state lines with him but law enforcement here nor there will do anything. I had to hire an attorney to get the county attorney to do anything.

peanutnovo 2011-10-29 13:55:10 -0500 Report

I have been raped 5x's the 1st time I was 9 so I too also know how u felt cuz I was physically, mentally, verbally, psychollogically and sexually assualted by my stepfather frm age 13 till I ranaway frm home at 17 when I found out I was pregnant by another mans child. And been on my own ever since. My mom & I aren't very close bcuz she never did anything 2 protect me from him let alone report him 2 the police. Can we be friends?

margokittycat 2011-10-29 21:01:55 -0500 Report

I would love to be your friend. My mother and i arenot close either and she never protected me. My mother twin sister did and she was more my mother than mother, and when things happen in my life now I don't have her to turn to and talk with and help me deal with them as she past away last year in april.

Margo: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU AND I HOPE FOR MANY MORE…I'm so sorry your fight for your son continues. Pixsidust seems to know what she's talking about. Take her advice, I would if I were in your situation. Love, Hugs and Blessisngs to you and your family…Valentine Lady

Here is what you do "if" you are not divorced or "legally" separated with custody awarded to your spouse. Get a certified copy of the childs birth certificate. Wait till another family member or sitter is watching your son and you husband is away. Go with the police or sheriff and demand your son. Only the father present can stop you from getting him. Grandparents have to hand him over to you. Then you go to the courts and file a legal separation with your son in custody. Who ever has custody of the child keeps custody until the courts iron out the division of custodial rights. Be quiet about what you are doing so he is not forewarned. Be brave!

margokittycat 2011-10-28 15:54:49 -0500 Report

Problem with this is we are divorced, and he is in another state. Yes he took my son acrossed state lines. We have joint custody of the kid's. Be very quiet about what I am doing that is the last thing I want is for him to know what is coming.

pixsidust 2011-10-29 00:36:56 -0500 Report

If you have joint custody then you still can show up when someone else is watching this child. They can't hold the child from you. You need that birth certificate, your identification to prove who you are and the local police to escort you

margokittycat 2011-10-29 09:56:15 -0500 Report

Thank you I will try that. I have the birthcertificates for both my children and SS cards. I have all my id's to and the court order. I don't know though that it will help as my son is 17 and they probably don't use a babysitter all though they should with his aspergers.

Hugs Margo - sorry your birthday is overshadowed by so much sadness so I won't say happy birthday just send belated birthday wishes for many more to come. Have a good weekend with the family.


GabbyPA 2011-10-28 09:21:26 -0500 Report

I am so sorry to hear that you are going though so much. It kind of makes a birthday no fun to be sure. So when your husband comes home, have a Happy UNbirthday and make it a special time for both of you. Even just a few hours of distraction would be good for you both.

My prayers and thoughts are with you and the recovery of your son. That will be a happy day to erase all the bad ones.

margokittycat 2011-10-28 09:31:03 -0500 Report

Thank you gabby. We are going out with all of our children and my in laws saturday evening for diner. It will be good, but it will not erase the fat that my son is not thee.

GabbyPA 2011-10-29 10:38:55 -0500 Report

No, that is for sure. But making your other children feel the love and embrace of their parents is important too. Sometimes you have to focus on what blessings you still have.

I'm so sorry your alone on your b-day. With everything going on, it just adds insult to injury. But you know that this too shall pass and you will be much stronger for it. Have faith and God will see you thru. I'm with T.Rose, treat yourself to something you don't normally do. LIght some candles and take a nice hot bubble bath, or take yourself out to eat with a good book. Or go to the show. Do something fun and just remember we are all here for you and next year will be better! God Bless you my friend. Take care. Mickey
