Thank you so much to those who have donated money! I am grateful to all of you, for your kindness and generosity! I don’t have help from
anyone in my family. But my friends have proven to be the “blood” I call family. 

Asher is now living with me in Mexico and Atticus is with his dad. I am raising money to pay for the legal battle we have ahead, to have Atticus living with me again. He has wonderful friends here and goes to a fantastic bilingual school. He has two sweet rescue cats that miss him terribly and everyone in this town has been asking where he is and saying how much they want him to return. We have an investigator who will be coming to meet me in Mexico and that costs a lot of money. It will be worth every dime and peso for me to ensure that my kids are back together. The investigator will also meet with the boys’ Dad and make a determination on who the kids will live with. I’m not asking to have full parental rights. I don’t believe the kids need to be taken away from their dad forever. But I do believe that during the school year they will be much better off living with me.  If you can help in anyway, I appreciate your donation. 41388744_1567303184332510_r.jpeg
