I've tried to let things pass, but the latest incident was the last straw. They asked to take care of my baby so I could concentrate on my work. However, the baby got sick with pneumonia while in their care. As an angry mother, my initial reaction was to blame them, but I did not go through with it because I knew bugso lang ng damdamin un. However, when I went to visit my son at the hospital, they actually said that my son might have gotten sick because of me??? When I only see my son once a week? And I was notified of my son's hospitalization three days too late because ayaw daw nila mawala ung concentration ng ex-bf ko sa pag-aaral nya so di nila pinaalam.
This is exactly the type of thing that I hate with them. I, as a mother, feel like it is my right to be duly notified seeing as I gave them permission to care for my son. They don't consult me for my permission in matters involving my son and they don't even notify me that they've decided something about my son's life that I would definitely like to be a part of. Kelangan ko pa silang kulitin para i-update ako sa kalagayan ng bata.
Recently, kinuha ko ung anak ko sa kanila, but they didn't allow me. As I recall correctly, it is against the law for anybody to stop the mother from taking her child, specially since hindi kami kasal ng ex-bf ko. They said that to get my child I should get an xray and a sputum exam, which I did and was found to be completely healthy.
So I took my child home and after a few days they show up with the intention of taking my child again. We fought because I didn't want to give up my son again after all I went through and they did not respect my decision. They even threatened me that they'd go to court to formalize that they would have no responsibilities and liabilities should anything happen to my son in the future. It will also state they won't support my child in any way anymore.
This is actually what I want too. Is there a way to do this? I'm in the province and my ex-boyfriend is in Manila so he has nothing to contribute, specially financially because he is a student and is completely dependent on his family. This is why, if they are going to claim that they want nothing to do with me and the baby any more, then can I ask that paternal rights be taken away from my ex-bf? because with him involved, I know his family will just keep meddling. Can I also file a case against them because they kept me from taking my child and also, can I use this as grounds for taking away paternal rights from my ex-boyfriend?
