Help bring my babies home!!

I’ve never been the one to ask for help, or let many people know my situation.. it’s a vulnerability that I have a hard time letting out. I can’t do this on my own, and I need help.. I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am now..I’ve fought being homeless for months, to get a place and keep it stable for over a year!! I’ve kept a job and had steady income flow.. I’ve fought extreme depression after my mother’s suicide.. but I just need some help right now!!  Two years ago I lost my children to DCFS. I was called a child abuser. I gathered all evidence and did everything I was told to do to prove my innocence. The case was dismissed and all charges were dropped.. Even though I proved that I did not do the things I was accused of, I was still treated like I was. My kid’s dad completely cut me off from seeing my babies.. I once tried to see them at school and he called the cops and took them from the school.. I haven’t been able to see them in 2 years.. I haven't been able to hug them, or kiss them, watch them grow, see them experience life!! I haven’t been able to see them loose their first teeth.. or for Oliver’s first haircut.. I missed Sophia goin into Kindergarten!! I’ve missed holidays, and birthdays!! So many important things he’s taken from me!! And he feels justified under the circumstances... because he doesn’t know the outcome of the case and he believes in what he believes no matter the evidence!! I’ve paid the lawyer the fee he was asking back last Oct of 2019, and still have not got into court!! In feb of this year the father of my children moved away to Texas with the kids and made it difficult to go to court.. Covid happened next.. Now I owe the lawyer another fee of $100 for finding the address and $400 for a court cost that he never informed me about!! And he sure doesn’t have it to pay, he’s told me.. I never ask for help, but I need help!! I desperately want to get this paid off so I can get into court for a chance to get my children back!! I dying inside each day, my purpose missing from my life.. if you could maybe help with anything it would beyond words appreciated!! I’d be so very grateful!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
