Bring Meadow Home

On February 24, 2013, our sweet Meadow Grace was born. Unlike most families our situation was different. Meadow was born at a time of extreme lows in the lives of her parents and so she was immediately placed into foster care. Without any notification to her father's (my brother) side of the family, she became a part of the system and, because of circumstances out of our control, we became helpless. We had no way of retrieving any information about Meadow's whereabouts except for updates on the situation from her father. Our fight had started, only we had no idea what lay ahead; a few months later on July 30, 2013 her father was killed. Our hearts were again broken and the longing for Meadow to be in our lives grew even stronger. In addition to Meadow, her father left behind Rhiannon, who is blessed with a loving mother and stepdad. Meadow was not so fortunate and she remained in foster care. Meadow is now 10 months old, has special needs, and we have never gotten to hold her. We are lucky to get pictures of her from her other grandparents who are permitted to see her, because Child Services has formally recognized them as grandparents. We have big love for this precious baby! We are engaged in a custody/adoption battle to bring her home so that we can love her and raise her. If you have ever tried to gain custody of a child, you know how expensive it can be. So far, we have paid about half of the anticipated costs for our attorney. Can you help us? We truly desire nothing more than to bring Meadow home so that we can raise her as my I know my brother would have wanted us to do. We never know what God has in store for us, but we have prayed about our decision to adopt Meadow, consulted with a Christian adoption group, and we know it is the right thing to do. We have completed our home study and are approved for placement. The only thing left to do is to get Meadow.
