A loving mother has been taken away from her 4 kids recently. My cousin has not been away from her kids more than a few hours since they were born. The fact that she can not see her kids, talk to them, ask them how they are doing, tell them she loves them, hold them, kiss them, it not only is breaking her heart, but everyone's in the family.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is a big issue that does not get enough light. Especially it's effects on the kids. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE TO SPEAK UP!

As someone who comes from an abusive household I can tell you that it has long term effects on the kids, mentally, emotionally sometimes physically. The age range my cousin's kids are 1 yearto 9 years old. The older kids are going to remember this time and it's important for them to be around their mother so she can reassure them, so she can continue to protect, provide and nuture them through this tramatic time.

I do not know what I  would have done without my mother. I was still young when we had to go into protective custody to get away from my father. And as a young kid, my brothers and I, we had to bounce around from home to home, but having my mother there was the stability I needed in that unstable time. 

SHE'S CURRENTLY 5 WEEKS PREGNANT! She is not getting the proper care a pregnant women should get where she is. She is not receiving prenatal vitamins, she is not getting nutritional meals, she is not seeing a doctor or even sleeping in proper conditions at this moment. She has a list of allergies they do not care to hear about. She is currently sick and she can not even receive medical attention! She is suffering! This is not right!


My family does not have the money to release her or pay for her lawyer fees so  I am reaching out to our community to please help us. Please help my family through our troubling times. We have never had to deal with something like this. Any donations we will  be appreciated and if you do not have please share this and most importantly keep my family in your prayers.

Being that this is an ongoing situation, I can not give anymore information in the matter. My cousin is sweet, soft spoken, caring, loving, funny and she is a GREAT MOM who loves her kids.  She needs her kids just as much as they need her. 

God Bless you for even taking the time to read this. Thank you.
