Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How old is your son and when did he last have contact with his father or his paternal family?
Do you know where your ex lives?

My son is 2 (27 months) and he hasn't seen his father in about a year. He has only ever seen his paternal family once (paternal grandmother). I do know where he lives.
