Help us keep a family together

Right now our family members  are in a foster home and the foster family is pushing to adopt (meaning a closed adoption, none of our family will have no right to see them again until they are 18).

Their parents made some life mistakes, and the children were taken. But, we want these children in the family!
CPS never notified anyone of the case or the need for housing for these children. They just disappeared! For a year! And we couldn't find them!

As soon as we learned of the case, we asked to foster/adopt the children, to keep them with their family.
We have never been granted a home study (4 months after our request) and are lucky to get a visitation with 1 of the 2 siblings every other month. We should also be granted phone calls, but CPS has never granted that.They had a legal obligation to encourage communications, and they never even tried.
With the foster family having the children so long and CPS not accommodating visitations, this helps build the case for the foster family.

We have a loving home for these children (closer to the family that cannot take them in), but right after Christmas and with the need for so much money upfront, we need help with the legal retainer. And the longer we wait, the more we build up their side of time with the foster family.

If you can help us, at all, it would be most appreciated.

Thank you.
