Joshua LaRue To See His Son Anthony For The First Time sign now

The Story:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In June of 2006 I, Joshua Wayne La Rue was married to, and still am, Nicole Williams. We resided in Mountainburg, AR at her request to be with her ailing mother. Three weeks after our marriage we discovered we were expecting. Upon receiving the news we were both overcome with happiness, we were scared but we regretted nothing. Anyone who knows me knows how much I've wanted to be a father, but only two days after discovering the news things changed. Nicole began cussing me, spiting me, no longer would touch/kiss/make love to me, she also belittled me in front of my friends at every occasion as if to push me to a breaking point that I would leave, her family joined in by cornering me on every argument Nicole and I had, I worked 6 12 hour shifts a week at that time, I didn't get off work until 6 sometimes 7 in the morning, I would come home and try to kiss Nicole goodnight and tell her how happy I was that we were going to be parents, in return she would push me away, cuss me and go back to sleep then at 10 in the morning her and her family would wake me up and tell me in their house people didnt sleep all day (even though I had just worked a 12 hour shift and been to sleep no longer than 3 hours). After two months of trying to make things work, and constantly having Nicole run to her parents for help instead of talking things out with me, I confronted her and asked if the best thing would be a seperation possibly a divorce, she screamed at me and ran to her mom who commenced to kick me out. Now before I got married and moved in with my wife and her family I had my own place and everything was under control, but they still kicked me out, before I left they swore to me that no matter what I would be involved with my child, hospital visits/ultrasound/birth/equal custody. Things changed, not even a week after the seperation I tried contacting Nicole to talk about when the first Dr. visit would be, her mother answered and told me not to ever call or come around or else they would contact the authorities. I still tried once more 2 weeks later because I wanted so badly to be involved in my developing baby's journey, the number was changed and still is to this day.

I sent messages through her friends and family to no response and to deaf ears, 5 months went by and one day I found myself in wal-mart, at this point I had no idea who my unborn's child dr. was, what hospital Nicole was being watched at or anything, while in Wal-Mart I decided that maybe Nicole would have her information in the gift registry for a baby shower, sure enough I found her name. To my surprise it was listed under Nicole Williams (not LaRue, which was and still is her legal last name) upon further investigation of the gift registry I noted all clothes and baby accesories were for a boy. This was the day I discovered I was to be the proud father of a baby boy, I was not informed by Nicole or her family or anyone, I was given this very important news that I had every right to know by a computer registry next to the jewlry department of a Wal-Mart. The hard reality had hit me at this point, I wouldn't see an ultrasound, I wouldn't get to see my son's progression in the womb, I wouldn't get to see his little legs and arms growing, I wouldn't see his little heart beating, but what could I do? Three months later I begain searching every local hospitals nursery website in hopes maybe I could get some information on my son, and on march 23rd 2007 I found the link for Anthony Andrew Williams (once again note the last name is Williams, not LaRue, now my wife can decide whichever last name she wants for herself but Anthony was born in our marriage thus his last name should've been LaRue). That day I saw my son for the first time at my computer desk with his eyes closed and a big smile on his face, surely the angels were in his dreams telling him welcome to this world, I rushed to my phone and dialed up the hospital he had been born on March 20th, 2007 just 3 days before I found the page maybe just maybe I had time to sign the birth certificate. The hospital staff answered the phone and treated me like a dog, telling me if I even attempted to show up demanding to sign that they would call the cops on me. Just a little background on me, I've never been violent, I don't drink, I've never been arrested and I've never even had a ticket, yet it seems everyone wants to cal thos darn cops on me!? So, so far no doctor visits, no ultrasound, found out I was having a boy at wal-mart, saw my son the only time so far on a website for the hospital (btw the photo has been since removed at the request of the mother), and now I can't even sign his birth certificate kinda funny considering I am still married to his mother huh?

I then jump into action getting messages out left and right, trying to find a phone number, I feel hope bubbling out of me that now that he's born (March 20th, 2007) maybe just maybe her heart will soften and she will let me see my son. Nothing Nada ZIP. Then on August 16th 2007 after being refused, ignored and pretty much forgotten and my heart ripped out and stomped on, I receive a letter from Child Support demanding I start paying, I was like yes oh god yes let me because then I will get to see him, The laday at the child support office says no, without a court date and a good attorney its pretty much up to her if you see your son, so I say I want a paternity test because then I will have documentation showing he is mine and she can longer act like she emactulently concepted him, she will be forced to know I am the father, and I can go on to sign the birth certificate, so over a month later I am ready for the DNA test. I am told up front in a letter that all three of us need to be at the office at noon, I show up 10 minutes early knowing just knowing that this is the day I see my son in person for the first time. To no surprise I find out she had to come in early because she had other things to do, figures huh, so I am giving my dna with a mouth swab and I look over and not even 2 feet in front of me on the table I see it a polaroid turned upside down with the words Anthony Andrew Williams written on the back, I reach for the picture it's almost in my grasp when suddenly the lady performing the sampling snatches the picture, seals it in an envelope and laughs at me and says this is sealed for the testers now and I am not allowed to open it again and then she exits the room. Fast forward present day, I received my results and just like I already knew, I am the father, Anthony turned 7 months old on October 20th 2007, 7 months, I've missed his first smile, his first giggle, so many firsts that I will never be given back to me and for what? Because his mother is wanting to have him all to himself? is is just drama wanting and selfishness? Does she really believe I'm a threat? Who is a bigger threat a father who has done everything possible to see his son? or a mother who has everything possible to keep her son all to herself and not let a very loving caring and proud father see said son? You Decide....

I come to you all today and ask what would you do if your child was ripped away from you for 7 months or longer? What would you do if you were helpless in the matter, that every lawyer you speak with tells you even if you get visitation (which is all Arkansas offers, They never grant joint custody to anyone, it has to be agreed upon by both parties, yeah like shes gonna do that) that with visitation the child has to be with you in front of the mother, until he is 3 which is when I can get every other weekend and wednesdays or whatever. I would be completely happy with that, when I go to court, but this petition is for more than that, this petition is for me to present to the powers that be the ones who can make decisions: Nicole Williams has kept my son from me for 7 months without any good reason but selfishness and hatred, If you sign this petition then you are stating that you agree that Joshua Wayne La Rue be granted no less than one month of full custody of Anthony Andrew Williams. In this time Nicole shall not be allowed visitation, personal contact with Joshua nor will she be allowed any pictures or information concerning Anthony Andrew Williams in any way. Upon completion of said outcome Joshua Wayne La Rue be granted no less than standard visitation of every other wednesday and weekends, every other holiday and summer vacations starting immediantly following said month, if not Joint Custody. I know one month is no where close enough to make up for what I've went through the heartache, the sleepless nights worrying about my son and his well being, but I believe this experience will not only give me and Anthony time to bond and become familiar with each other but I also believe it will be a wonderful learning experience for Nicole, to kind of put the shoe on the other foot and walk in it. I am still married to Nicole and with that in mind I have sole equal rights to Anthony as she does. So I beg you today sign this petition.
