Help Madison

Madison Phillips needs our help getting her rights and freedom back from the state of Massachusetts and into my guardianship.  We need to get her back home and in the community where she belongs.  Since in state custody, she isn't living an active full and happy life.  The state controls her visitation and calls to her family and friends.  For those who don’’t know, a year ago Madison began to struggle emotionally and act out.  During this time she did some things that were uncharacteristic of Madison and the state got involved.  She had said some things to her therapist that were taken seriously but never had intent to act upon.  Nobody was hurt or in any sort of danger by these. .  The situation here is that when Madison turned 18 she was guardian for herself and remained that until the state took it away from her in February 2018.  Since then I have been fighting with the state to transfer guardianship of Madison to her and its been a struggle to say the least.  Long story short I have been trying to do everything on my own and cant seem to get anywhere.  The only other option we feel now is to hire an attorney.  Unfortunately this comes with a hefty cost that I can not take on by herself. So please if  Madison or I have impacted your life with our loving spirit please consider donating any amount that you can. Any and all donations are welcome and any donation received creates a big impact on Madison well being.
