While I was stationed in North Carolina, my wife and I were expecting. At 29 weeks we learned my son would be born with kidney problems so I was authorized tad to slc for primary children's medical center. At 3 weeks old my son was diagnosed with 'failure to thrive'. After 4 days in icu his mother admitted that she's neglected breastfeeding and would benadryl him nightly. At that time, my wife walked out for 3 months. I was given a hardship honorable discharge.. Eventually we mended relationships and got in classes. When we had a second child, at 11 days old she was malnourished and diagnosed with 'failure to thrive'. At this point my wife and I separated. She disappeared. About 5 weeks later she came back and demanded the kids. We then worked an agreement that she could have them 1 day a week. From this point, it was a constant battle to keep my son healthy.

July of 2018 her family bought a lawyer and she served me with divorce and custody demanding 100%. I self represented and offered her 50% and I won. Since then, she has been doing everything she can do bend the order..  neglecting proper child care. Missing school because 'its too far', failing to do homework, and neglecting to follow doctor orders on medication. Currently, my 5 year old daughter has had multiple non invasive sexual abuse kits performed on her due to my ex wife's 'concerns'. My 6 year old son has had 3 different prescription glasses from different doctors. My son has been in and out of the emergency room all week because she refuses to give him his medicine on her time. My son has had 5 speech therapists revolving. Im working towards hiring a lawyer to assist me in proving medical neglect, educational neglect and possibly looking into getting my ex wife help. 

I have constantly reported everything to dcfs, and were still pending investigation. After 2 years. 

Please help me fight for my children's safety!
