Hi Everyone :) This is my first time on this site and I am excited to see what all this offers. My partner and I are in a nasty :eek: custody fight for our son from his father and step mom who are apart of the southern Baptist and we are fighting a political battle from the step momsí side. So we are looking for any advice, help and comfort from anyone. I would like to get to know you all and we also hope to maybe meet some friends along with support.
Look forward to speak with everyone

That does sound nasty, dually dicey even. I know there are several people here who could speak to your situation better than I. Might even want to post that in the main forum (or one of them, they just changed the format).
Hope to see you around. :)

I want to welcome you and your partner to Soulforce. I know that we all want to hear more about you situation, and ongoing struggle. As I'm not a lawyer. all that I can offer is support. And yes, you can post to any of our main forums.:D :D :D
Peace and Love, BruceChris :love:

Welcome to Soulforce, Melissa and Sheree! I hope you will find it as much of a "home" as I have. There are some wonderful, supportive and very knowledgeable people here.
I'm sorry to hear you are going through a custody battle -- it tends to hurt everyone in the process, most of all the child. I hope that you were able to find a good, GLBT friendly lawyer who has alot of knowledge about GLBT custody issues. Every state is different, and I've heard of good outcomes and bad ones. I will definitely keep you both in my prayers for the best result possible, and that your son will be happy and know he is loved by all the parents in his life. :pray: :love:

Hello and welcome! :)
I have NO experience with custody issues whatsoever, but I hope that all goes as smoothly as possible with all of that, so that your little one can get on with life feeling loved and cared about.
See ya around the board some more, hopefully. :)

I hope that you'll find the love and support that you need here, many have described us all as a weird family of sorts... we're all here to support each other and I hope you'll find yourselves happy with the group!
Glad you found us!:love: Good luck with the custody issues!:pray:

Welcome Melissa and Sheree. Glad you found the forums! Sorry to hear you are in troubling times right now, but don't give up. Love will prevail! You will find a lot of support and encouragement here, hope you stay around and share with all of us. :love: :pray: :)

Melissa and Sheree: Welcome to Soulforce. You will get as much support as you could possibly need around here. I am in the middle of a separation from my partner, and we will be sharing custody of our daughter. However, no major hurdles or struggles are expected. I do agree that you two may need to get some sound legal advice there, by searching or asking around for a gay-friendly person, friendly to you as lesbians but also to you as parents. Good luck, keep the faith, and keep us all posted. Peace be with you all- Vanessa:pray: :love:
