A woman is devastated after her mother took away her boyfriend and her son.

25-year-old Heather Ford said that she feels betrayed by her mother, who stole her boyfriend while she was pregnant with his child.

Helen Ford, 41, began having an affair with her daughter’s boyfriend, who was identified as Tom, 24, and neither were at birth of the boy.

Heather Ford gave birth to her son when she was 19 years old. The baby was her second child. Her first baby was born when she was 15 years old. Tom is not the father of her first child.

Now, after 6 years, Tom and Helen, who later got engaged, have won custody of Heather’s second child.

“That woman stole my man and now she has stolen my son. Never in a million years did I think my own mother would treat me like that,” a broken hearted Heather said.

The matter did not only affect Heather. Her father, Barry, 56, was married to Helen for 21 years before she ran off with her daughter’s boyfriend. He filed for divorce.

Tom and Heather’s mother filed for custody of his son after Heather gave birth to her third child with her current partner.

Heather said that she was not eligible for legal aid to pay for an attorney because her partner works. However,

Helen and Tom did qualify for a legal aid lawyer because the couple don’t work and live off of government benefits.

After a messy legal battle, Tom and Heather won custody of the boy.

Heather is allowed to see her son every other weekend and half of school holidays.

Heather said that she will keep fighting to get her son back from the 2 people who betrayed her in the worst way possible.
