In May of 2007 I entered into the beginning of a lengthy legal battle with Chancellor George Ellis that has yet to be resolved; a battle over my partner's right to live with me and my children.
Our story started in 1997 when I met my partner, Mary, while I was working at a bookstore. We started out as friends and have been a committed couple since 1998. We had our shares of ups and downs, as every couple does, and we managed to build a stable and loving relationship. We were both social workers, working mainly with at-risk youth, Mary a child counselor and crisis worker and I working with foster children and children in residential facilities, so neither one of us were strangers to handling tough problems and looking out for the best interest of children. Mary had known my children since my daughter was 2 and my son 4 years old and had a positive relationship with both.
