Attorney fees for Cole and Lexii

Hi there, as many of you already know, Cole and Lexii came to live with our family last April in a rather unique way. Cole and Lexii have had a rough road and have still an even longer road to healing ahead of them. We can't share all the details of what these two have been through, but they are in a safe loving home with us now and we hope to keep it that way. We have fought to keep them safe and God has blessed every step we have taken. Dan and I have been to court 7 times since the end of May trying to get full custody of Cole and Lexii. We have been so blessed to have recieved a yes to every thing we have asked for in court and we recieved Temporary Full Custody of them in early September. Our last court date was Oct.2nd and we won our motion, however we are being ordered to trial to finalize this case. We have represented ourselves through all of this and thought we could continue to do so. Through research and talking with the courts, that is no longer possible due to how in depth a trial is. I have been on the phone with Lawyers for two days and this is going to be hard. We had a consult with a Lawyer named Molly Mcpherson in Coupville and she seems to be highly sought after in situations like this.  It will be $3,000 just to retain her and a grand total of $6-8,000 by the end of trial . We are only asking for help as soon as possible with the initial retainer of $3,000,  we will make out of pocket payments on the rest. 

Thank you all who have been walking this journey with us, your love, encouragement and prayers are coveted daily and we ask that you continue!
