Leslye, Where is the Father? Seriously? The blame is solely the Mother's fault! But if you must know they were divorced, there has been a very long on going custody battle! By the way if you want to blame someone blame the bias system in Ca. for the Children still being in the custody of their Mother! If the system listened to the Dad McKinley would have still been with us!
