Ask Reunite to help and advise I suppose you have done so.
You must try to think clearly.
If you know where about your ex partner is try to contact the social services or even the Police tell them that you fear for your child safety .

hi steve
I am so so sorry to hear about your terrible time that your ex g/f has put you through, I have had a similar experiance where my ex husband took my daughter to france 4 years ago and i have not seen her since, i have gone down all the legal routes i possibly can and yet i feel that i am the one who is in the wrong as nothing is being done to help me, I just wanted you to know that you are not on your own, there are many people like us and please dont ever feel you are alone in this, I hope things get resolved for you i truly do. nicola

Hi Steve.. Try to stay strong.. I know too well how difficult it is but there are a lot of us in the same situation.. My Little boy was taken by my ex to New zealand from France and I miss him so much. I have a Hague Application in place and hope he will be returned soon. Speak to Re-Unite they are really good.. In fact they were the voice of reason for me when I was really down. Take care & let us know how you get on X

Dear Steve, My thoughts are with you. There is no pain like this in the world. It will be with you forever. No one can say or do anything to make it better, so keep strong and fight the demons.
