‘I was like, ‘You can’t take my daughter’: New parents’ struggles as they battle to get their child through an escort
Posted August 08, 2018 04:11:53 A new father is struggling to get his baby through an arranged marriage after the man and woman refused to let him get the baby out of a hotel room.
James Riddle and his wife, Emma, from New South Wales, had just given birth to their second child last year.
James and Emma Riddle were originally planning to have their second son at home.
They had decided to take their baby out to the beach, but James was turned away.
“I had a bit of a breakdown because it was like a really hard decision,” James said.
“The other woman was like ‘you can’t do this, you can’t let me see my child’,” he said.
When he refused to leave, he was then told he would have to wait for an hour for the hotel to give him a lift.
“She had a big bag and we were all like, well what do you want us to do?
She said, ‘well you can go home, you’ll be safe and we’ll have to give you a lift’,” he recalled.
“It was a really bad decision.
It was very difficult.”
When the woman refused him a second time, he found out she had an older sister who had an appointment to see a paediatrician.
James said the younger sister “was really upset” and “told me she’d had a nightmare”.
James was initially reluctant to speak to the media about his experience with the woman.
James said he did not want to make the same mistake as his parents. “
When you’ve had a really traumatic experience, it can be really hard to speak about it.”
James said he did not want to make the same mistake as his parents.
“If I’ve done anything like this, I’d do it again,” he added.
James Riddell said he was told to leave after he refused a second attempt to get the car out of the hotel room he was booked to go to. “
And I think it’s good that there’s a stigma around these sorts of things.”
James Riddell said he was told to leave after he refused a second attempt to get the car out of the hotel room he was booked to go to.
James, who is single, said the decision made him feel “like a failure” and made him want to “go home”.
He said he wanted to talk to the man who had refused him the car.
“My parents are very supportive,” he explained.
James and his parents have now filed a discrimination complaint with the Victorian Human Rights Commission. “
Because I don’t have any family I couldn`t trust them.”

“As a father, I feel like I should be able have a right to do this,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“Being the parent I am, I shouldn’t have to do anything.”
When asked about what the family would have done differently if he had been able to get in contact with the man, James said, “…
“In this particular case, the woman who had the booking, we did find out later that she had a sister who was going to see the doctor,” he noted. “
You just don’t expect that, I would just have said ‘we’ll wait and see’.” James said his experience was not the first time an escort had turned down a man who wanted to get a baby out.
“In this particular case, the woman who had the booking, we did find out later that she had a sister who was going to see the doctor,” he noted.
James also said the woman, who had her daughter on the way, had been very kind and respectful towards him, but was not comfortable with him being the father.
“At the end of the day, I don`t think I would have been able go through with it, but I would definitely not let it happen again,” James added.
James’ experience was shared by another escort, who was approached by a man at a Melbourne hotel on Monday night.
“He said ‘hey, I have a young girl I’m going to have a baby with’,” the escort said.
The escort said she went to the hotel and asked to talk with the hotel’s manager.
“We had a couple of drinks and he said he couldn`ts give her a room,” she said.
However, she said she had already agreed to have her daughter with the father, and it was then that she decided not to speak with the manager.
The manager later contacted her to say she had to leave.
“So I left and went home,” the escort added.
The father did not return calls.
“To be honest, I was a bit nervous because I didn’t know if I was going straight to a police station or what the next step would be,” the woman said
