If you don't have any court orders establishing a parenting plan, now is the time to meet with an experienced family law attorney to acquire those orders. What you did does not constitute abandonment and even if there are very long periods of time where a parent has not seen a child, the court always fosters reunification between parent and child for the child's best interests.
