Good morning everyone!
As i'm filling this out, my heart is breaking, and I feel slightly discouraged. At this moment in time we are fighting to have full custody of my husbands daughter. It’s not a fun place to be in, and it’s scary, but we know it’s the right thing to do! We are wanting our daughter to have the best possible chance she can of a bright future, and right now where she is living our daughter is struggling. Aireanna is 4.5 years old, she’s such a beautiful girl and she holds such a special place in our hearts! The home she is currently living in, with her mom, is physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually dark. We have seen the living conditions she is in, and have witnessed first hand the severity of neglect she is living in. We are able to see Aireanna every other weekend, and when we do it’s a battle. Aireanna almost always shows up looking like a MESS. Wreaking of urine, soiled clothes, unknown bruises or scratches, clothes to big ( several sizes) or clothes to small they have affected her growth in areas. We have tried and attempted many talks with the mom, we have given her time to make the choice, hoping she would "wake up" to what she is putting her daughter through. However we are IMMEDIATELY desiring to remove her from the home. Our goal isn’t to keep her birth mom away from aireanna, but it’s to provide her with the things she hasn’t had for 4.5 years. In order to DO THIS, we have to hire a good attorney. We have spoken to several attorneys, we have done the research required of us, spent many months asking for prayer. We are seeking the Lords face on this matter whole heartedly! We have been given a green light after 3 years, that now is the time for justice, now is the time to bring our DAUGHTER HOME! We are asking for $5,000 due to all the fees it will cost just to take this to court. We have to file a Motion, have the papers served, find, pay for and appoint a Guardian Litem, pay for the attorney fees, and then some. We are currently a family of 5. My husband and I have a 1.5 year old boy, and a 3 month old baby girl. Family is very important to us, and even more so to the Lord! We ask that you would consider donation, and if anything please pray for our situation! Pray our daughter has strength during this time, and pray for her protection. Thank you for reading this and taking the time to pray for our family!
