Concerns growing for a little girl and her father in Koh Samui


Recommended Posts

I will be back in KS at the end of the week, if this is a genuine post and the guy does indeed have difficulties in looking after her, then anyone who has some firm info on the circumstances and their whereabouts can contact me directly.

It can be difficult (and sometimes even dangerous) to get too close or involved with another persons issues, no matter how tragic or regrettable. It would seem this may be a case where it is worth taking the risk, so if anyone comes across any new details please keep us all posted (or myself directly)

So this is my first post but since my girlfriend has known this girl and looked after her from a young age before i feel like i should finally make an account and post, i have been reading this forum for about 2 years and have been too lazy to get involved, too many people like bitching on here but regardless..

The girls name is "jasmine" and both her parents are drug addicts. The mother is or was in jail for drug use and the father is a loser from the UK who used to push drugs and was "looking after" his daughter by begging for money but often using the cash for drugs, sounds pretty typical right..

Apparently he came knocking at the house of some friends of my girlfriend looking for her and more money a few months back.

I pity the child, here are a couple of pics of her as a baby so you know i'm not full of shit, the guys sounds like a total loser, often taking money and spending it on drugs for himself and his thai wife while neglecting the child, so if you do decide to help i would help the kid directly if possible..

that is my 2 cents..

You keep track of her and send the info to bignose or even to me for that matter and you will see just what bitching old farts are capable of doing.

What qualifications are required to pay a hospital bill? I have not in any way been judgmental, I have made no assumptions as to why this situation has occurred, I am making no half baked prophecies

You have only heard he may have a substance abuse problem and you are ready to crucify the guy. Apparently, he is taking care of his/someone's daughter; perhaps the best he can. I suggest you try to h

If someone locates the girl and she has need, PM me and I will arrange for free care for her for outpatient needs. I cannot manage inpatient care if required but I can arrange the doctor's fees in or

If this story pans out and the father is indeed a drug addict, would it be a possibility to offer the dad a sum of money in exchange for signing a document waifing all parental rights? Basically, allowing us to put the girl up for adoption and find her a good and stable home? I'd say the ideal way to get the girl away from the dad is in a non-violent and non-confrontational manner, and although I hate to support one's drug habbit, if that's what it takes to help this girl, the end might justify the means...

I'm more then happy to help out here, however I'm not living on Samui (living in Songkhla, few hours south of the island). If anybody involved with the dad and girl needs help, please feel free to PM me.

That's exactly what I'd suggest, though I could only offer money and/or a stable home and future in Germany.

And your qualifications are what?

A decent human being for a start.

how do you know that ? Some stranger on the internet ? Willing to provide help for a young cute girl ?....no offence, just do not think everyone is an innocent helpful party full of good intentions.

My Wife and I would be very happy to Foster this child (My Wife is Thai) and give her a lovely comfortable home for however long it takes for her Father to get himself sorted. One would suspect that he not only has either drug or alcohol issues, but might well have Visa issues as well (only congecture, but not unreasonable). The Boy needs to get himself back to UK and get himself medically sorted, then get some support/job so that he can take proper care of this little one. In the mean time, we are more than happy to offer her a safe and comfortable home. Once he is able, he might want to take the little one back to the UK, but if Mum has disappeared and they are not legally married, that could be yet another issue he needs to address (again conjecture). First and foremost, it sounds like he needs medical help and the support one can get in the UK. If I can help, please PM me. More than glad for anyone on the official side to come and visit us and check us out.

My hat off to you!

The father may be short of money and have no proper home, but that does not necessarily mean that he is not a good father.

I don't know the circumstances and I'm sure most of the people posting on here don't either.

Assuming that the father loves his daughter, usually the best place for any child is with a loving parent.

Lots of guessing here, including someone who seems convinced the father has no visa... how on earth can anyone come to such a conclusion.

It's touching to see people offer to foster the child, perhaps an offer of accommodation for the father and his daughter would be more impressive.

I would pick my words very carefully & hope that you are not saying what I think you are hinting at. Again do not need trolls in these topics, if you have nothing sensible to say, then better say nothing & let the good folk on here try & help.

so you think not being careful of complete strangers offering to help a possibly vulnerable child, is sensible ? Amazing.

Whilst I am sure that most people posting here are well meaning - this is a minefield.

None of us really understand the laws covering this situation. eg - offering money to the father to 'relinquish' the young girl - trafficking maybe. We just do not know. (I don't.)

Even the rights of the father are probably not automatic here - if he is the father. Again, I do not know.

One thing that is probably correct - the mother is the legal guardian.

I would think that the best thing for the child is to contact the mother's family. If the mother is in jail - her family could probably gain rights to the child in the mother's absence. Then we could offer to support the child through the family. Not easy if the family are not on Samui though.

That's my suggestion anyway. Totally legal

As I previously mentioned, troll posts not welcome. If you have nothing positive to contribute to a LOCAL forum,with people trying to help & do the right thing ,I suggest you don't.

You want to discuss this further, advise you to use PM function.
