L. a lv Over the duration of our relationship he said he would change and would stop selling drugs if he gets a Ve job. I was disappointed due to for 2 years I took care of Legacy and Mon'Rell alone so he can get his k driving license cleaned and get his CDL. The Petitioner quit a job in 2013 or 2014 due to the hours er and because he made more money selling drugs than on the job. He complained about missing money Cl while at work. That put me back in the position to solely take care of my children alone again for the ct next few years. I have been working since before I had Legacy Mosley. I have kept a stable home and tri job for my children. I have received assistance from CCMS to make sure my children are in daycare or is aftercare while I work. I kept my children Medical and Dental up to date with Medicaid . D Co I started changing my lifestyle and Terell was not happy about the changes. I started going to church is more and getting my life aligned with God. There were things that happened before that I put a stop to. av I no longer wanted to deal with his street life of selling drugs or partying. I would speak up about his Tr temper and smoking marijuana. My views on life started to change and the welfare of my children y were not like his. I began thinking and working towards my career. op c In January 2015 the Petitioner went into a fit of rage due to me not agreeing to what he wanted. All 4 l ia of my children were in the home when it happened. The Petitioner started braking things in my home fic and then went to punching holes in my walls. The children were scared and crying.

October 2015 I had to take a Personal Leave Of Absence from my job due to Ve the Domestic Violence got so bad. I became very depressed and would have consistent panic attacks. I just wanted to be away from Terell and have a healthy lifestyle. He became very possessive and didn’t k er want any other man around me or talking to me. Cl ct November 2016 while I was going to Avenue Five Institute Beauty School at night. The routine would tri be to meet and pick up the kids from a gas station. I missed a few of his calls and when I called back is to change the pickup location he cursed me out. The Petitioner speed up and parked beside me.

The Petitioner knew she fic found out and did not tell me. She showed up to my house at 8am to bring his clothes because he of didn’t come to her house that night. She started throwing his things at my door step. I told her that it Un was no need for all that. Legacy and Mon’Rell were in the house at the time looking at the girl throw his stuff in my house. The girl wanted to fight because she thought I was with Terell. The Petitioner e and I was not together at all. The Petitioner was trying to get me back. I wouldn’t follow through with ic it because he wouldn’t stop selling drugs. The Petitioner had a job at the City during that time as well. Pr I had to call Terell to come get his stuff she left and told him what happened. He went to the girl house L. and started threatening her because she didn’t bring his drugs with his clothes. The Petitioner used the a lv girl as a place to stay due to his mother kicking him out and he had no place to stay. The girl that came Ve to my house is a State worker and told him I would report her if she comes back to my house. I moved further out Cedar Park due to the altercations Terell got into with other females when he went out k er downtown. Cl ct I have tried to give the Petitioner many opportunities to get his life together to provider for his children tri the right way. I would talk with him about getting his credit together so he can get a place of his own. is That’s part of the reason I never reported his actions. I didn’t want to hurt his background and make it D hard for him to get a job or his own place. I would encourage him to stay on his job so he can move up . Co in the company. I have spoken to the Petitioner about getting his own truck and owning his own is business. The Petitioner Terell D Mosley Sr. got a job with the City of Austin and got fired due to an av altercation with an employee. The Petitioner continued and continues to sell drugs, traffic drugs and Tr smoke marijuana. I have asked plenty of times not to have the children around it as well.

They both said Terell would leave them at night and go spend the night somewhere Ve else. My children sleep in the bed with me still so they are not use to sleeping alone. Legacy would k console Mon'Rell at night so he could sleep. I would stay on Facetime with them until they fell asleep. er I had my sister Tenice Bedford picked them up from the Petitioner and she called me while I was in Cl Colorado. She stated that Legacy and Mon'Rell smelled like marijuana and the Petitioner car also ct smelled like it as well. I asked the Petitioner to make sure he doesn’t have them around "weed" in a tri text message and he said ok. D is . I have tried to help Terell with finding a job. He had to offers for the oil field and all he needed to do Co was complete the application and turn it in. Terell complained about not being around his children if is he went to the oil field. I explained to him selling drugs is going to get you put in jail. Then you won’t av be able to see them on your own free will. Terell stated he does things the safe way and won’t get Tr caught. My old Pastor Lincoln Coffie and his wife Apryl Coffie also tried talking to him about y changing his lifestyle and getting a job. Terell said it is hard for him to stop selling drugs because he op has been doing it since he was 18. l c ia July 2018 I met the Petitioner at a gas station to get my children. My sister Tenice Bedford was with fic me. I took her cause I was scared that Terell would hit me when I spoke about the move. The of Petitioner has hit me and pushed me before in front of my children. I told him that I was moving to Un Georgia.

That’s when I removed myself from the vehicle before he got violent towards me. That’s Pr when I knew I was making the best decision with moving. Terell is not stable enough mentally to take L. care of my children. Terell doesn’t want to change and wants things to be easy for him. a lv Ve I allowed Terell to spend time with the kids before we moved as much as he wanted. I never tried to k keep his kids away from him. But the closer it got for us to leave he started arguments over simple er things. The week of August 20, 2018, Terell texted me to get the kids. He asked for me to get them Cl dressed and pack them some clothes to spend the night. I questioned Terell about him leaving the ct children at his mother’s house overnight as he spent the night somewhere else. I asked for him to stay tri with them at night because Mon'Rell who was 4 years old at the time would have bad dreams off and is on. He told me he was grown and could leave if he wanted too. That week I called him none stop D every day to talk with my babies. Terell wouldn’t answer or would text and say they not with him. . Co One day he was at football practice and said he would have them call me when he got home. I didn’t is hear from them until Saturday August 25, 2018. That was unusual for Legacy to not Facetime me.
