WHO AM I?
Well, i'm a 6-4", 220 pound Sicilian who is passionate, caring and goal orientated. I'm assertive yet supportive. I'm a father who absolutely adores his children and they're by far the very motivational force that fuels my desire to succeed.
Although, I am currently incarcerated I don't believe that it's total representation of who I am. I made a very stupid and selfish decision to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking and had a very bad accident. I am responsible for ruining many lives, which I sorely regret, and will spend most of my life trying to show the world that I do posses a lot of redeemable qualities. Even though I may never truly be able to forgive myself, I still have a relentless will to succeed.

This is my son William Jr. He's almost 3 years old and is also the reason that I am in desperate need of your help. I am not asking for money, I am asking for help in the form of advice or information. This little boy is half my heart and soul, my beautiful daughter being the other half. My children are like an unimaginable dream come true. They give me reason to live and succeed. I completely adore them.
I have not seen my son in well over a year. Ever since my wife and I decided to separate I have not been able to see him. She took him away and my world crashed. I close my eyes and see his beautiful smile, right away I feel like dying because I don't know when i'll see him again. I pray every night that i;ll see him soon and wake up every morning with a feeling of sickness, not wanting to face the day. My children are my solace and I miss them dearly.
My situation is very difficult because I am currently incarcerated. I am incarcerated for a horrible tragedy that was caused when I stupidly and selfishly decided to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after drinking. Although I am incarcerated I've done nothing wrong to deserve what my son to be ex wife is doing. I have never been abusive to her, my son or anyone else. I try to help as much as being paid 2 dollars a day will allow. I send gifts, diapers and try to pay for all the calls to my son. I know that this is nothing compared to the up bring of a child but I am doing my best.
My incarceration should not be the issue because all of the recent research has shown that I could still play a very vital role in my son's life. The research also describes the importance of my involvement in his life even during a incarceration.
My wife is understandingly upset that out relationship did not go according to her plans but she should not use our son as a weapon of retribution against me. I of course feel bad that we are getting a divorce however, I did nothing to violate my marital agreement. I felt as if I had no other choice but to file for divorce after she stopped bringing him up to see me. I waited hoping that she would realize that what she is doing is unhealthy for our son and I even told her as much but she never listened or cared. Now I am afraid that i'll never see him again. I have filed for visitation but still waiting to hear from the court.
As I said before I know that there are plenty of studies that state the importance of maintaining contact between a father and son even during incarceration. However, my ability to get access to these things are very limited. I don't have access to a computer or money for an attorney. I truly miss my baby-boy.
Thank you for listening!
