Reuniting a father and son!

my name is Casey Copenhaver and the photo is of my little brother. Jared Copenhaver is now 11 years old and living with his mom and her new husband where they are attempting to adopt Jared and make his step dad his " legal" father. For 3 years our mom has kept him away from us, refuses to allow him to see or have contact with his family and we need everyone's help to remedy the situation. The $3,000 we are attempting to raise are for LEGAL FEES. Our lawyer has informed us that we need to pay 2 grand by the beginning of the year or they will no longer be willing to continue working on our case to be able to see this little man! I plead and ask this as a sister who misses her little brother. The last thing i want is for us ( me and my dad) to not be able to raise the money for that would mean we won't have a chance at seeing my little brother again. If our mom gets her way she will allow her new husband to adopt Jared and finalize keeping him out of our lives! i want what is best for my little brother and i need everyone's help! Jared has the right to have his family, to not be taken away from the ones he loves and has known as his blood for his whole life. Jared will miss out not only on me ( his sister) and his father but he also has another older brother and sister who he won't be able to see. He will miss watching his 3 nephews and 2 nieces grow up. As well as numerous aunts and uncles, cousins and grandparents. So i say again, We NEED your help. We love this little boy and we miss him. and if all it takes is some money to make sure he isn't stripped of his family and kept from those he loves and love him than so be it. Even if you can only give a dollar, every little bit will help. thank you and god bless.
