About this Item

136 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 4.9in. x 0.4in.James Martin is a forty six year old man who lost his first born son at two weeks old and his only daughter to an incurable illness when she was twenty-two years old. Now divorced and single, he was blessed with having another child seven years later, with Betty Jo, a woman twenty years younger in age. He met Betty Jo through a mutual friend of theirs. After two years of living together, James was accused by Betty Jo of assault and he was innocent of any crimes. She accused him of assault because she was unhappy with him for finding out that she was planning on giving their baby up for adoption. James found some emails that Betty Jo had sent to the couple that she had selected to adopt their baby and emails that she had sent to an adoption agency. He also filed a paternity suit when she was five months pregnant, because he did not want his child to be given up for adoption. Without any help from legal aid or a Pro Bono attorney and being unable to afford and retain a family law attorney, he had no choice, but to act as his own legal representative in the suit and at the same time fight the assault charge that Betty Jo had filed against him. With the charge against him, James fought for his innocence with great uncertainty and doubt because he knew that he might lose his parental rights as the father. He had to defend himself in front of four different judges and with three different legal defenders at his side. In the midst of the criminal courts and mediation for parentage, James lost his full legal and physical custody to Betty Jo. Meanwhile, Betty Jo had changed her mind and decided to keep his child after the birth. After two years of mental anguish and going to trial, the assault charge against him was dismissed. The suffering James had gone through as a result of fighting the assault charge was lessened, but then increased as Betty Jo moved thousands of miles away and took his daughter with her. This move left him and his daughter separated miles apart, as though she was adopted as planned. This book was written based on true events, the names and identifying details of the characters have been changed. This item ships from multiple locations.

Review:

I read your book, I found it very interesting, well written but a bit upsetting for what they put James thru. There are many fathers out there who don't even want to claim their kids and James had to go thru so much and it took so long to be able to see his beautiful little girl!!!! I highly recommend this book . -Helen Maria Chavez-

This is an awesome book that I would recommend to everyone. -Joseph Martinez-

This book is a definitely a good read! This book really gets your emotions going and it makes you want to read more to find out what happens next!  You have to read this book to see how James prevails in his fight to prevent Betty Jo from placing their daughter up for adoption. His real life story is amazing! -Fabian Martinez-
