This page was started to as a place for all the posts about my (Michael Granata) struggle with seeing and being in my daughters Lilly Makar ‘s life.

I love Lilly and Miss her so much but her mother Amanda Makar will not let me see or talk to her at all. It has been over a year and a half since I last seen Lilly.

Amanda Makar states that my mental disability is why I can’t be in my daughter’s life. Because my Mental Illness maybe a danger to my daughter is what she claims.  Even thou my metal health therapist, case worker and doctor all disagree. I have sought out legal advice and in till I am done with my court ordered mental health treatment I can’t afford to go for custody which works in Amanda’s favor.

Yet Amanda Makar has been charged with criminal charges for poisoning Lilly. (See More on that here) with her own mental health medication. But she still feels Lilly is safe with herself.

And Children and Youth Services has been involved with Lilly since I have been in her life. And still currently are as of 8/1/17. See Amanda Makar did not want me in Lilly’s Life at all and keep her a secret after Amanda had told me she put Lilly up for adoption.  So my time with my daughter has been from when she was 6 to her 10 birthday in June of 2016.

Now I am forced to just seeding card and gifts every month. I do try to call Amanda’s phone and I text like every other day asking to see Lilly. Also Amanda will not allow me to have supervised visitation or talk to Lilly on the phone. She will not even answer my texts anymore when I ask to see Lilly.

My 2nd use/reason for this is that one day Lilly will read this and know I am not staying away from here because I wanted to but was forced to.

The first trampoline was broken by a rain storm because Amanda would not buy 10 dollars worth of tie-downs. And thus she wanted the 2nd one.

  • Jun 27, 2015 Got to take Lilly to Ohio for her 9th Birthday. Here is a video of her on a carousal, Click Here

    6.8.13 Emma, Bonnie, Lilly

    6.8.13 Well Lilly is a sleep and I was able to get her this weekend.  My ex was being nice today which was shocking. All I had to do was drop off Lilly Sister at Lillys grandmothers. Which was kind of out-of-the-way but it was worth it. I had such a great night with my daughter, Bonnie and Emma seen in photo mark as.

  • A good update. Since I had my daughter for the weekend I decided that this Sunday I would with her help build some shelves in her room.  See picture here – Building shelves with my daughter 6.9.13
  • 11/19/13 – Things have been going good with my ex and she has really been supportive of me and flexible with my visit with my move.
  • My daughter has not really warmed up to me the way I had hoped but i have only been in her life for about a year.




Video’s I made for Lilly.

I need to do more of these. Maybe someone will see this site and see her and show her one of the videos so she knows that I am not staying away because I want to. That I am being forced to stay away.


Texts between Myself and Lilly’s Mother

As you can see i am not always nice in the texts but that happens very rarely. But you can see my out lashes because i do not edit these screenshots at all. All the crazy you see Amanda say is really said by her.

    Dear Mike, I am so sorry you are going thru this problem with your ex wife, I am sure that if you take your case to a court, the judge will be the one dictating weather you can see your child or not, and not the grandmother, I don’t know all that is involved in this struggle of your, but one thing I do know is that you have the right to see your child, mental problem or not. Some women like to use they children’s as a chess piece, don’t allow none to take your right away, with out a fight.and next time make a page for you and your struggles, so they don’t take advantage of you.
