Thank you for all of your visits, with court only days away and no help what so ever we are quickly facing a devastating loss of two of our most precious family members. We have been beating down doors and researching every thing we can but this David and Goliath battle has left us with out those famous rocks or a sling shot. We can only hope that one day in the far off future we will be able to explain what happened to our family when our two beautiful girls come with their questions and seeking their well deserved answers. We are prepared to lose. I hope those monsters who contributed to this enjoy this because there is a special place where monsters get to reap what they have sewn..... We will be taking some time off before coming up with a plan for the other aspects of our charity.
Life takes the most extreme twists and turns and all you can do is keep fighting for what is right. Every move we make is because we love our family and we love our beautiful nieces. They deserve to stay with their family and not be snatched away forever. Please help us keep our family together. Share our story and donate today!
Hopefully someone I reached out to today will come through and help us with our cause. Our family deserves to stay together. Only a monster would want to take two children away from their entire family forever, only someone selfish would think that stealing children is appropriate. You know who you are. Shame on you.
We have been calling and searching for support, looking for a pro-Bono family law attorney. What we have found is that most attorneys care about their bottom line. They want money. It makes no difference to them the lives of children that hang in the balance. Please share our story, if you know an attorney or student willing to take on our case, someone who can donate to our fund, or even just more friends who will continue to spread our story. We need all the help we can get. The most important thing is that our nieces stay within our family. We will not abandon them!
Please continue to share our story. We still need your help to bring our beautiful nieces home to their family and out of foster care. We want to do everything possible to make sure that happens, so thank you if you have read, liked, or shared our posts, we appreciate the help.
Please Continue to spread our story. At this point in our journey we are trying to ensure our nieces stay within our family! The Foster parents have decided to adopt our nieces and cut off all contact with the family! We want to keep that from happening! We Love our girls very much and will do anything we have to, we want what is best for them, and that is that they grow up with their family involved in their daily lives, close to those who have loved them since their conception! Please Help us keep our nieces from being taken away forever!
We will continue to work hard to keep our family together, and to help other families who are in a similar situation. If you need help or know someone who needs more information please message me. Please share our story with your friends and donate if you can, we still have a large legal bill and with court coming up soon we are doing our best to ensure our beautiful nieces are safe and loved with their family members.
Despite the recent events we have decided we are still going to take our kinship class and continue moving forward with trying to keep the girls with the family. They may have been removed from their parents home, but that doesn't mean they need to be completely cut off from their family. We will continue our efforts to bring the girls home.
Just so every one is up to date. This is what is happening.
The foster parents have decided they want to adopt the girls, change their names and seal the records cutting off all contact between the girls and not only their parents but also everyone else in the family. Because we have been making small payments to our attorney and the bill is quite high, he decided that we not only have to pay off our bill but also fork over a completely new retainer fee, which all adds up to over 5k. So because Nikki doesn't even make 5k in a month we are now without an attorney. We called Nikki's parents for help (as my family has been extremely supportive and they have gone beyond the call of family obligations) And Nikki's parents do not seem concerned one bit to be losing the girls forever. We however are devastated. I'm questioning everything that has happened the past two years and what the right decision is. We don't know what to do other than to continue on our own, which we really don't stand a chance without our attorney. This is the hardest thing we have ever had to face. Ever. And I don't know how I will ever forgive myself.
Some serious developments on the horizon, and we need your help! Please donate to our cause today and thank our attorney who has been so amazing through this process! We need your donations to continue on this path and bring our two beautiful girls home to their family!
Please share our story and donate if you can! We are still trying to cover the legal cost we have incurred in order to ensure our girls return to a safe loving family home. We are almost halfway to our goal and we need every bit! We are only asking to cover the legal cost! None of the money donated goes towards anything else! Please PM me if you are interested in sending a check or money order straight to our attorney. Thank you all for your help!
Don't forget to share our story and show your support by donating today! Every little bit helps! Thank you to everyone who supports our cause!
Please continue to share our story! We need your support more now than ever! Donate what you can to help us keep children close to the families that love them!
We are still raising funding to cover the legal costs we have and are incurring. Trial is fast approaching! Please continue to share our story and donate if you can! We need your help to ensure our beautiful nieces have a loving family home where they are free of drug use and domestic violence! Please donate now!
Please continue to share our story and donate to our cause. We still have lots of ground to cover and the legal costs aren't going anywhere! Please donate if you can, even $1.00 helps! Our attorney is doing everything he can to work with us on these costs so thank you to those that have donated already, we are almost halfway to our goal! Don't stop spreading the word! Our battle isn't over!
So far we have been lucky that so many of our friends and family have donated what they can to help us raise money to cover our legal costs. Please remember this is for legal costs only. We have had many more costs associated with getting prepared to provide a safe loving home for our beautiful nieces. The legal costs can be the only thing keeping a loving family member from adopting and caring for a loved one in need. Our long term goal is to help other families in our situation. We are hoping we only have a few more weeks to go before we can bring our beautiful girls home and give them a safe, violence and drug free home close to the family that loves them. We still have a large bill with our attorney and with trial coming up soon we would like to make sure he stays as our council! Please continue to share our story and donate if you can. We thank every one who takes time to read our page. We are fighting the good fight! Thank you for your support!
We have not forgotten about the other kinship families in our situation. Sometimes family's in this position do not have all the information or legal help they need to ensure the physical, financial and emotional health of, not only their placements, but also themselves and their household as a whole. We have found that CPS isn't always forthcoming with sanity saving information. We want to help other families that are put in this same position, with information and legal help to get them through this extremely difficult process. Please remember when you donate to our charity we will be helping other families in the very near future through this extremely difficult time.
We still need help raising funds to cover the legal costs we have incurred. We are currently prepping for a home study, so we might be bringing these two little beauties home very soon!
Lefty day is a day to celebrate! What better way to show your support than to donate to a good cause and help our little lefty come home to a loving family!
Just like her Aunt Nikki!
in honor of national lefty day our niece
Please continue to share our page! We need all the help we can get! With the attorney's bills coming in we want to make sure he continues to represent us! Trial is approaching fast and we are ready to bring our beautiful nieces home where they can be safe and loved and free from domestic violence, and drug abuse! Please donate if you can! Legal expenses are no joke! The cost of raising a child is nothing compared to the cost of fighting for their safety in court!!!
We are asking for some feedback. If you have donated over $200.00 would you want to come to a little reunion party with us and the girls? We thought it might be a nice thing, not only for the girls but also for those who are willing to be so generous? If you're up for it message me or post a comment! If you want to attend the party please donate the above mentioned amount!!! Hope to see you soon!
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and to those that will! We haven't forgotten anyone and we will be sending out your gifts as soon as our beautiful girls come home! Please continue to share our story with your friends! We need all the help we can get to keep these wonderful children safe in a violence and drug free home!
Please continue to share our story! Thank you to those who donate to our cause. We couldn't do this without you. If you would like to send a check directly to our attorney on behalf of these beautiful little girls then please contact me by email and I'll send you his information. We are not done yet! We have trial coming up and we hope to be able to bring the girls home within the next 60days! We are almost there!
Thank you again for the wonderful well wishes and support we've received! We are getting ready for our home study and looking forward to visitations with the girls until we can bring them home! Please continue to share our story, our struggle doesn't end here, we need to pay our attorney and get ready for trial! Help by donating to our cause today!

We have been notified again that someone is making complaints against our page. We do not post anything that is not true. If you have negative comments then keep them to yourself please. We will continue to raise support and awareness for our nieces and other children going through the foster and CPS system. Our current system is broken.

We still need donations for our charity. Please help these and other loving children who need safe homes. Show your support in creating stable families!
please continue to support out cause. some of you may know that we have branched out to helping other kinship families in the same situation. those that need legal help, but their budget isn't capable of handling it. Most kinship families are left in the dark by CPS, and we want to help those families that decide to open their homes to children who are abused and neglected. Please donate if you can and share our page. Our personal fight isn't over, and neither is the fight to help those families who need it.
we are still collecting donations of monetary and tactile value. we are holding a yard sale to benefit our charity as soon as we have enough items. Please make a small donation today! We want the chance to give beautiful, loving children a permanent, safe home to live and grow in! We could not have gotten this far without your help! This is only the beginning of our cause, we have other families who have asked for similar help and we vow to help them as well. Please look into your heart, what can you spare to ensure abused, neglected and abandoned children are placed in safe family homes?
Our page is getting more visitors, we still need help raising donations, either monetary or we are accepting items for our charity yard sale. We need to raise money to help fund our legal team. Again we are the first family, but there are other families who need this type of legal funding. We are also trying to raise awareness with the issues becoming a kinship home through CPS creates. Be aware of your rights. They won't just tell you everything. Help us help others we are all a family ♥
We still need help spreading our story and collecting donations to fund our legal team. We need to hire a couple of experts, and in the interest of not revealing too much information (as we know there are people who watch this account) Please consider the expenses to our family, and know that 100% of your donations go straight to the charity. We are the first family, and once we get the ball rolling, we have a couple of other families who will be looking for the same kind of help with the financial aspects of legal expenses where children we love are concerned. Please open your hearts, we want to give these children loving safe and violence/drug free homes!
Please continue to spread our story, we still need help with the legal fees associated with our case. We have more work to do before we can secure the safety of our beautiful nieces! Please make a donation to our site or contact me by email to donate items for our charity yard sale! Thank you!
Our loving family members have decided to help us hold a benefit yard sale to raise money for the legal fees. If you have anything you would like to donate to the benefit please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your support!
Another long morning in court, we still have work to do. If you could take a second and read our story! We still need your help collecting donations!
Our meeting with our attorney today went very well. We are positive that we might be able to bring the girls home soon. Thanks to all of our donors who made it possible. We still have a lot of work to do before our hearing. So please share our story and donate, we thank you for you charitable hearts. Please help bring these girls to a safe, loving violence and drug free home. ♥
With the court date coming up soon, we are comforted by the fact that nothing can really be done until our case is heard. However we are still struggling with the high cost of legal. Discovery and deposition take time and money, if you can donate to our cause we promise 100% of the money goes to the legal costs of getting our girls out of state care and into a safe drug free home.
We've faced a few setbacks in the last week, however don't count us out yet. We won't give up until our girls have a safe, loving home. Don't forget to share our story!
Thanks to all our supporters we were able to pay our retainer fee and almost half of our first bill! woohoo! progress feels good! We still need help as this bill is just one of what will be more to come! A good attorney isn't free and it's because of you all that we are able to have one that works so hard for our cause. Help us bring our nieces out of foster care and into a loving stable family home. These beautiful girls have endured enough trauma, neglect and abuse. They deserve to grow up safe and free from domestic violence! Please share our story and help us gain even more support!
The time to make a charitable donation is now! Read our story and help us bring these two beautiful little girls into a safe loving home!
With our next court date fast approaching we are more nervous then ever, please read our story and share. We still need your generous donations to get our beautiful nieces out of the foster care system and into a safe loving home they deserve. Because of you we are almost half way to our goal, please continue to share and donate to help our family with the legal expenses. Thank you to all of our friends for your amazing support.
We are almost halfway to our goal, please keep sharing our page and thank you to our generous sponsors so far. We still need your help to bring our girls home. We have lots to do before the court date, and unfortunately it isn't free. Thank you for everyone who supports getting these girls out of the foster care system and into a safe, loving, drug and abuse free home. Please keep sharing our story!
Thank you to our supporters, please keep sharing our story and donate if you can. Every dollar helps bring us closer to our goal of bringing our girls home! ♥
We want to thank everyone again for being so generous, if you tried to donate and your payment was kicked back, we had some issues with the website, those have been fixed so there shouldn't be any more problems.
Thank you friends, we still need your support. We met with our attorney today and set out our plan. We can't give too much detail because we are aware our page is being monitored. I will say that our first next step is asking for temporary orders so the girls can come live with us until we figure out all this mess. We are moving forward and we still need help. If you can find it in your charitable heart, please donate to our cause. We still want to bring our girls home! Help us get them out of the foster care system!
We are meeting with our attorney again on monday, please continue to share our story or donate if you can. The opposing side did not file a motion to strike, so we are moving forward. We desperately want to get our girls out of the foster care system and bring them home. The legal fees in a case like this are no joke. And lawyers don't work for free, especially an awesome one like ours! Please spread the word and help us bring our girls home!
Just received another extremely generous donation, please share our story and donate, even just $1.00. Every dollar brings us closer to bringing home our girls. No child deserves to grow up in foster care when they have a loving home. The only thing that keeps some families from opening their homes to families in the foster care system is the high cost of legal fees. Every time you donate the money goes straight to legal fees. We are more than willing and able to raise these girls and give them a comfortable, loving home, we only need help with funding the legal side of this ugly business. Please help us!
Thank you again for the donations we have received! We are still raising money to offset our legal costs. Because we are able to find donors like you we have retained an amazing attorney who is truly passionate about family law and believes in our case. Our girls should not be living in a foster home, we are hoping to bring them home soon, so please keep sharing our story and even donating $1.00 will help our cause!
Please remember to share our page and donate! We still need your help raising money for our cause so we can bring our girls home!
We spent the weekend setting up the bedrooms for the kids, everything is so beautiful. We kept each room age appropriate so the girls will all be more comfortable when they come home.
Thank you to all who have donated so far, we still need your help!
Help bring awareness to our cause. Sometimes the only thing holding family members back from providing a loving permanent home for children stuck in the foster care system, is the exorbitant cost of legal fees. Please help our family come together by providing support for the legal costs we are incurring. Please share our story and donate today!!
(photo of our two nieces who are in a temporary foster home.)
We just got accepted for a new 3br! There is plenty of room for the girls to run and play! We're spending the weekend picking out paint colors for their new rooms!
If every person who visits our page donates just one dollar we would be 3/4ths of the way to our goal! Please donate to our cause, help support children who need a loving, happy home.
Thank you to everyone who has donated, we still have a ways to go before we reach our goal! Please share our story or donate if you can, we want to get our beautiful nieces out of the foster care system and into a loving family home. Please help!
Please keep us in your hearts, share our story and donate if you can. Our first invoice has come in, we still need your help so our awesome attorney can keep doing what he does best! Thank you!

Our fund account has been receiving complaints, we assure every thing we have posted on our page is true. Thank you for your ongoing support.
Please don't forget us this year for your charity, each time a person decides to donate it brings us closer to getting our girls back home and out of the system. Help us bring our nieces home.
Every time I see someone donate it brings tears to my eyes, your generosity in this is un surpassed.
Thank you to our sponsors, because of you we were able to pay part of our attorney's fees today! We are one small step closer to bringing our girls home!

We have another meeting with our attorney tomorrow, this guy has not even been paid yet, he is amazing. Please if you can, donate $1.00 or share our story. We want to get these two amazing girls out of the system.
Our niece Summer, she's deaf. Her parents refuse to learn ASL and expect her to lean speech. We enrolled her in TSD last year and she loves it. We miss her dearly and want to give her and her sister a loving family home. Please donate if you can.
Just updated our fund page, don't worry even if you've already donated, you will start receiving your emails etc as soon as our family is whole again! ♥
Small victory today in court. The kids are still in foster care. That's a good thing because they were not sent to live with Nathan and Ashley. We're still fighting the good fight. Please share our story and help us get donations! We're ready to move forward!
This was taken over Easter holiday 2012. We miss them so much.
Thank you to our supporters, even if you only have $1.00, we appreciate anything you can do! ♥
