Please help Violet & Ayriel!!

Ayriel Our Daughter & Violet Our Grandaughter
October 11, 2014
We are now facing a probable Full Hearing.  We have been doing this fundraiser for about 3 1/2 months now.   Because of where this case is headed, we need to raise the remaining $1840.00 as soon as possible - With 74 donations of $25.00 we can reach the $5000. We have the deepest gratitude for everyone's support and Prayers; together you have raised alot of money and have touched & blessed  our Family by helping us help Ayriel & Violet. 
Today, with the high probability that this case will go to a Full Hearing -  becoming potentially even more costly, we have put David's Harley up for sale - hard to do- Dave (and I) Love our rides with good Friends & together.....Dave is a great Husband, Step-Dad and Grandfather - I know what the Fat Boy means to him.  Dave is doing what a good man does for his Family - we will, God willing get another bike someday - were just doing the next right thing here. 
It is very difficult to continue with this Fundraiser but we are in a serious situation that unfortunately is far from over ....alone, we don't have the resources to help & protect Violet and her Mom Ayriel. 
This has been going on for our Family for 9 months now and it is very hard to find the words to describe what we have all been thru.   Violet, at the age of 4 and her Mom Ayriel have been thru alot. I can only say prayer, ours...yours  - have helped us so much with all of this.
Sharing our Fundraiser, or Sharing the Harley/Fatboy add that we posted on Facebook and Craigslist today would really help us.  We remain and will always remain forever grateful for all of you....I would like to reiterate (I talked about this in a previous post as several people had asked) that our Daughter is not in any legal trouble. Ayriel is the primary parent of Violet and will remain so.  This is a matter involving several individuals that have engaged in many actions and behaviors that have been harmful to them on many different fronts and we need serious legal support in this ongoing matter to help them reclaim their sense of safety, make serious & needed changes regarding the well-being of Vi and to protect both Ayriel and Violet from any and all forms of harm in the future. 

Thank you & Bless you all..NO donation is to small.  Love Rose, Dave, Ayriel, Violet, Athen and Rayne

 I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has donated in these past couple of weeks. I appreciate it immensely. -Ayriel & Violet

9/1/14 These past six months have been really awful and very, very stressful. So many people have tried to help us. I want to Thank all of my Mom and Dave's Friend's and two close people to Violet & I that helped with a large anonymous donation to get some help with this. I still appreciate it immensely and I 'am not sure how to adequately thank all of you - I Thank you all; most of you who have helped do not even know me but you helped anyway because you know my Mom, Dave or my Daughter Violet. You are really nice people. - Ayriel & Violet
