I moved to Brazil in April 2012 of this year to be with my wife. I left behind my 13 year old son. His mother and I divorced; I re-married. I have
3 siblings and their respective spouses and my Dad; I gave my brother power of attorney to handle any issues concerning my son.
I prepared my son for this the moment (starting in Feb. 2011), I thought it was a possibility; my new wife had immigration problems we were trying to
resolve. It was not an easy choice to leave my son or my family...my true love needed me more.
If I had custody the choice would have been much more difficult; I did not. I had parental rights and visitation; his circumstances were not going to
change anymore drastically than they had when I moved out; June of 2010.
I had to put my wife on a plane without me on October 21, 2011; I had obligations I had to attend to first. My Mother was ill and my son had his bar
mitzvah coming up and I needed to be there for that. My Mom understood and approved; she adored my new wife. My son understood and gave me his
blessing. Mom ascended on Jan.31, 2012. My son had his bar mitzvah in April.
There is much more to this, but I just wanted to lay the scenario out for the purpose of this thread.
In October of this year I stopped hearing from my son. I started to reach out to my family for assistance. I am not able to call under my current
circumstances and e-mail communication is all I can rely on (no one in my family has bothered to get Skype to keep in touch). I lost my cell phone
service. There is much more to explain about my situation and that will be another thread for you to be bored to tears by.
If I were your sibling or son and you knew this information about my situation; how would you respond to me?
The following transcripts are from the e-mails I sent; I will give the replies I got in the course of the thread.
If someone could please contact Erik and ask him to get on Skype I would greatly appreciate it. I hope all is well with my family. Edith and I are
doing the best we can under trying circumstances as well I am sure you all are. We miss you all.
I was hoping to speak to my son and I wonder if any of you have had contact with him lately. I have not heard from him for over 3 weeks now. I hope
someone would contact me if something were wrong, but I'm not certain this is the case. I don't even know if you get my emails when I send them.
Please, respond so I know this is at least being read by someone.
Is there something someone is not telling me about Erik? As to why he won't contact me? Besides Skype, I have E-mail?
When is the last time anyone spoke to Erik? What did he say? Did anyone ask him to email me or figure out what is wrong with his Skype connection?
Please, do not ignore me about this. I know you all have your own lives, but I did not disappear. I moved to Brazil for a reason. Not to be
Take care and much love to all.
B.T.W - Ascension is in honor of my Mom, 211 is in honor of my Wife (2-11-2011 = Anniversary)
