I would like to seek for your legal advice regards to my situation with my daughter.
I was 17 when I got pregnant in my first child during 2004. She was born August 2005. Unfortunately his father and I got separated. I was still studying during that time as I was on my first year in college and have to stop on the next semester because of the same reason.
Year 2006 I pursue my studies and leave my child in the care of my parents as I also transferred to a boarding house near my school. Since then it was my parents who took care of my child even I already graduated and now working.
I now have a my own family, a husband (live-in), another daughter and now pregnant to my third child. Every mother's dream is to have a complete family. Fortunately, my husband fully accepts my first daughter and he has no hesitation if I would like my first daughter to be with us.
But it is my parents that doesn't want my daughter to be with me. What they wanted is for me to just provide whatever the needs of my daughter. But for me, that doesn't work that way. I am crying every night thinking of my first daughter and wanting her to be with me. I wanted to hold her, kiss her and embrace her each and every day. I tried to peacefully talk with my parents about this and hoped that we could come up in good terms.
But that doesn't what happened. Unfortunately, my parents are starting to plant negative things about me to my daughter so that my child will hate me. Now, my child is starting to hate me and say things like she doesn't want to be with me, that she like to be with my parents than with me etc.
They are also depriving me of seeing my daughter. This vacation I asked my parents if they can allow my child to have her vacation here in my place but they just keep on telling reasons for it not to happen.
I do not want to make things worst, most of all i do not want to defy my parents, but as a mother, I just want to be with my children. I love my first child same as I love my another daughter.
I would like to ask what should I do about this matter. Your kind response will be very much appreciated.
Thank you so much,
