Jacara Edwards' Attorney Fund

These beautiful children were taken from my sister, their mother, on Wednesday, March 7th after my sister sought help for her anxiety and depression.

My name is Abril, and this is my sister's story. Her name is Jacara and those three, beautiful children are her world--Jocarion (6), Javeah (5) and Jakyah (1), all of whom she birthed and raised as a single mom.

My sister moved to Wisconsin to prepare a better life for her and her children. A domestic incident occurred between her, the father of her child, and our father. The father of her child was immediately removed from the home and taken into police custody. A week later, police officers showed up at my sister's door to what they said was a "follow up", only to ambush her, stating that her older two had already been pulled from their school and taken into child protective custody, and that they were there to "retrieve the other child." My sister's 1 year old daughter was physically removed from her arms. This heartbreaking video has since gone viral.

Social services have prepared a case against my sister stating that her depression makes her mentally incompetent and therefore cannot tend to her children. They are stating that her children are also in an unsafe environment based on one incident of a domestic dispute, where the offender has already been removed from the home.

My sister needs a lawyer; someone strong and passionate enough to fight this case. She has always been a good mother and does not deserve this.

My sister reached out for support to help cope with her anxiety and they used that against her. My sister reached out for help against someone who attacked our father, and herself. Instead, they have turned this into an attack on her. This is not okay. There was never an investigation. Only an ambush!

We are asking that you please donate to this cause. Anything will help going toward hiring an attorney so that my nieces and nephew can return home to their mother; the only woman who loved them unconditionally and the ONLY person, who ever will!

We also ask that you pray for our family, especially my sister. Her children, are her Light. Let's work together to ensure that her life shines again!

We believe God and are trusting His plan!

Thank you so much!
