Second Plea to Lisa Miller
Posted by Melanie Nathan
Lisa, My name is Melanie Nathan and I am indeed a gay rights activist and writer. But at the same time I am a mother and I have compassion for your circumstances. I could not imagine the agony in having to hand over my child to another person, albeit legal parent, with the thought of possibly never having custody again. I believe this can change.
I am also a family law Mediator. Actually the latter is my bread and butter work. I am fair minded when doing my work and have the great talent of trading my activist hat for that of supreme neutral.
That said I am inviting you to contact me. I want to help you come out of hiding to face what is going on. We have about 24 hours before this will go to the next level and I believe if you contact me now or if you prefer the authorities direct, there will be no repercussion on the Friday contempt .
Every minute that goes by, your predicament grows worse. I truly believe that if you use me as a go between I can help negotiate safe passage for you, with Isabella and even more an out of Court agreement as to how to restore balance, so that ultimately Isabella can have you both in her life. I truly believe this can be done. Indeed it will take time, but it is better than ‘doing time,’ which may be the result if there is no intervention now.
I believe that you are indeed a person of strong faith. I admire and respect that. I also however believe that you have fallen prey to a very small part of the faith community that is using you for their own self serving adventure. This has been your downfall through all this.
That said I believe this whole horrible five year thing can be turned around – when there is a child involved especially nothing is impossible. I have learnt that through my many years of experience.
I truly feel for your plight and would be remiss if I did not reach out in this way.
Again I must urge you that from the information I have at hand, the timing is still good for you to make contact and I am willing to broker any contact.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org my private e-mail.
