One wish

Most people know us as the last family to ask for help. My husband is too prideful but he is also the FIRST person to offer help and has been part of hosting numerous local charity events. This is the ONE time he is willing to put ego aside as it pertains to a very important matter that will impact our lives greatly.

We have been the sole providers for my niece for the past 7 years. We FINALLY have the opportunity to legally adopt her but the catch is that it’s a very limited window of time. I have returned to work as my poor husband works at minimum 60hr weeks supporting a SAHM with a side photography business and 3 kids one of them including a nursing baby.

We were told by our lawyer we needed an additional $3,500 by January 1st or she will have to drop our case. This is all we need and our little girl can finally let her fear of being taken back to a home she doesn’t know be released forever. I have returned back to work leaving my nursing baby and two home schooled children with family or with dad on his very limited time off.

We are doing anything and everything to make this deadline and would appreciate any and all help from the bottom of our hearts, that you are able to give. Please help us make our little girls wish of legal adoption come true and help us to stop having to drag her back through endless tireless custody battles with her bio mom.
