[ 301 Pa. Super. Page 290]
This appeal arises from a dispute between the natural parents of Joseph D. Hoffer, Jr. over custody of their son. Joseph and Christine M. Hoffer were married on March 13, 1976. Their only child, Joseph, Jr., was born on August 17, 1977. A decree of divorce was granted to them on December 6, 1979.
On January 28, 1980, the lower court awarded custody of Joseph to appellant-father, with visitation rights to appellee-mother. Appellee filed a timely notice of appeal which appeal was discontinued by praecipe. Appellee then filed a motion for reconsideration of visitation and the lower court entered an order on December 9, 1980 which is the subject of this appeal.
The court order at issue states:
