Family Belongs Together

Hi, I'm Suzie. I am a mother of six but because I was a victim of domestic violence, in August of 2016, my children were taken from me. I was told, by both the social worker and attourney appointed to me, that the fact that I had called the cops, I was admitting to "failing to protect" my kids. The report I was given was vastly exaggerated and/or false but to dispute any of it, I'd be disputing the entire thing: the abuse didn't happen. 
I need a new attourney. Someone that would actually help me. That's where $6,000 would be used, I'm told, as an up-front "retainer" fee, before hearing my case.
It's been a year and a half since I had called the cops for help and all I was ever told is "it takes time" while both, again, court-appointed social workers and attorney have time-after-time gone out of their way to sabotage my family reunification while, at the same time, trying to say that they are helping.
Are you kidding me?! They shouldn't have been taken from me! This separation is hurting us more than helping! These kids want to come home!
Obviously there is a lot more to it than what I've shared here but I don't want to give too many details here and thinking about it is rather upsetting.
To read more about our case and know what you'd be supporting, feel free to visit my "blog" at theimpishthing.com/fbt
I'm sure you can imagine how appreciative I would be to have my children home, where they belong.
Please and Thank you,
Suzie

Yes, I know, how dare I ask for money at Christmas time. Shame on me that I would have the nerve to request that you spare even $5 toward providing shelter for a family, so they may possibly be together for the holiday, instead of a material thing that may or may not be tossed aside once unwrapped.
Sure, I have my wish lists for not-necessary-but-still-wanted things, though as that saying goes,
"give your presence, not presents"
I'll be lucky to even get to see my kids. Bah humbug.

Honey, I'm home!
Oh, right, I'm alone. With no power, no gas, and my phone's getting shut off today or tomorrow..
But oh, my gosh, the privacy! To be able to lay in my own bed and cry as loud and long as I need, without being bitched at like I have no reason.. and play my music, as depressing and loud as I want! Until my phone dies anyway..
Paradise.
