Bring Home Riley, Ezra And Vincent

$5,000 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 41 people in 7 months
Created December 24, 2017
Help Dave and Linda bring their grandkids, our grand niece and nephews, back into the United States from Costa Rica. They desperately need to come home and receive medical care, food, clothing and supportive family. Raised funds will be used for airfare, hotel, clothes, food and legal fees for custody hearings.

Dave and Lina hope to get them on an airplane the week after Christmas. 

Please also pray for their emotional well being as they are going through a lot of rapid changes.

Great news! The children have arrived back in the United States. It was a joyous reunion with many family members welcoming them at the airport. Thank you to their Grandfather Dave and his wife Linda for working tirelessly to gain custody and bring them home. We hold their mother Annie dearly in our hearts and pray for her healing and reconciliation.

Update! Today we received the good news that grandfather Dave has been awarded custody. He will start the paperwork to bring the kids home. The legal process may take 2-4 weeks before flying back to the US.

Airfare for the kids will be at least $1,500 and up to a month of hotel and living expenses another $2k-$3k. None of that estimate includes doctors or lawyers that may be needed.
Thank you everyone for your financial support and prayers!

Tomorrow (12/26) there will be a first custody hearing with the Costa Rica child services that will determine the process for Dave and Linda to be able to bring the children home. A translator mentioned that child services may require Dave and Linda to wait three months for a larger trial regarding child neglect of the mother. Please pray for a swift legal resolution so that the kids can come home and get good medical care, and supportive family care. Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far.
