Father Preserves Precious Moments With His Daughter
This Father’s Day is a happy one for Robert*, a disabled young dad, who is able to see his daughter again thanks to the Harriett Buhai Center. For Robert, every moment with his daughter is precious. Facing a life-threatening illness at age 19, Robert has survived a heart transplant, a stroke and a compromised immune system. But, relishing life, Robert had a daughter, Bella*, with his girlfriend. Although Bella lived with her mother, the bond with her dad was strong, and he was a part of her life. When Bella turned six, her mother shut Robert out of Bella’s life and moved twice without telling him. Devastated, Robert found the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law and asked for help.
“It was moving to represent a dad that was so committed to being involved in his daughter’s life,” remarked volunteer lawyer Pinto. “He was so grateful for our help.“
