I am a loving father of 6 children, 3 of which I do not have contact with. In 2004, my ex-wife put a lifetime restraining order against me involving my children, due to a domestic violence situation and a drug and alcohol addiction. I have been in and out of jail most of my life and have an extensive criminal history. My ex-wife has brain washed my children ages 12, 11, 10, and has involved them in adult conversations and situations since they could walk and talk, and due to this they want nothing to do with me. I have been clean and sober since August 2010. I would like to get reunited with my children again. How do I go about doing this, and actually have a chance of seeing my kids again?
