Legal representation for US

David and I were married in August of 2008. He married me knowing that I would not be able to give him children of our own so we prayed and prayed some more. Over time God had given us a heart to adopt a child through the foster system. On December 21st 2013 God blessed the world with our little Lucy and on Dec 26th God blessed our marriage with Lucy. At first it was hard for both of us but through many tears, sleepless nights and prayer God changed our hearts to love Lucy unconditionally. After having Lucy with us for about 4 months the adoptive mother of Lucy's biological brother came out of the woodworks saying she wanted Lucy. At first it seemed that the people responsable for Lucy's placement decision were saying that she should stay with us. Now at 10 months (11 months on the court date) the decision will be made. It seems that the people making the decision now is wantingLucy to go to this woman that came out of the wood works. We have been advised to get a lawyer to be a voice for both David and I. We believe that GOD has EVERYTHING under control but that God also gave us the ability to get a lawyer as well. We pray fervrently that Lucy stays with us and it kills me that we are having to go through this. I sit here staring at the screen crying that Lucy can be taken from us, but I believe that everything happens for a reason and GOD has everything  under control. I ask as my family and friends that you please donate to this page so we can have the ability to have our voices heard. I know things are tight on money but every little bit helps and if you can't donate money then I ask that you donate time by praying for  peace wisdom and joy for us and everyone involved in making this decision. I thank you for everything and I love you all in Christ.....Arica Freire
