Elizabeth and LaihLah's Adoption Fund





 Hi, I have no idea if I am doing this right, but I was referred to this by a friend, and I am praying that we find the help that we need.
     I am the grandmother of two beautiful little girls ages 21 Months and 10 months. My son and his girlfriend made some VERY bad choices and ended up being sentenced to incaraceration for a long time. Through CPS,,we have had 21 month old Elizabeth since April 17, 2013, however she has lived with us all but 6 weeks of her life and 10 month old LaihLah since October 17, 2013.  In LaihLah's first 4 months she had moved at least 4 times, was hardly being fed, was diagnosed with scabies, and been in a jail. My husband and I have been taking care of them with no problems, but there is no way we can afford adoption. CPS is completely in agreeance of us adopting them, however, the fees involved are Phenomenal. Between the Attorney fees, court fees, fees involved with name changes and the health department, there is no way we can come up with it all. Therefore we are afraid that if we don't manage to acquire this, they could possibly be adopted out and separated. My son is in full agreeance of us adopting them, and he was a good dad who made bad decisions, the mother, has a history of priors. We are on a very tight time crunch, 2 months to be exact. And we have to come up with half of this amount before May 30, 2014 and the rest by June 30, 2014 in order to proceed by July 10, 2014. I don't know what else to do other than ask for your help. Please help us keep our grand daughters with us. Where they know who we are, and know they are safe and loved. Where our family motto is "Family Takes Care Of Family". Thank you very much in advance.
