Help Reunite Our Family

Help Reunite Our Family 

David “Dave” Pioli and his wife Cheryl are reaching out to the community asking for assistance to help reunite their family. Prior to his marriage with Cheryl, Dave was previously married. Dave’s previous marriage did not end on good terms however he was blessed to have brought 3 beautiful children into this world. Two of Dave’s children were born with disabilities. After the divorce the children were placed with their mother and Dave was allotted visitation. He loved spending time with his children and strived to be very active in their lives. In November 2018 Dave made several failed attempts over a period of several months to contact his ex wife about their children and about his visitation with them. In March 2019 Dave reached out to his ex wife’s family in hopes he would be able to find out where his kids and ex wife were because he desperately wanted to see them and make sure they were 52601412_1605467136832855_r.jpegok . It was at this time Dave was informed of his ex wife’s tragic death, when she lost her ongoing battle with cancer in October 2018. Dave was then told that his disabled children had been placed into a residential program upon his wife’s passing. Since Dave was not properly informed of his wife’s passing he was not given a choice to make a decision in regards to his children’s best interest. Dave is the sole surviving parent to his children and is now in a fight against the bureaucracy of the state and the surviving family of his ex wife. Dave is willing and able to provide a happy, loving, and stable home to his children and to accommodate all needs the children may have. The battle to reunite this family has now become a court battle in which the mother’s family and the state are refusing to allow Dave to assume his role as their father. 

This is why we are asking for your help. No donation is too small and if you are unable to donate please share in hopes of spreading the word and bringing awareness to this great injustice. All donations will be allocated to cover the high legal costs that are being accrued throughout this court battle to reunite this loving family. After the legal costs are paid for any remaining funds will be donated to an organization to help children with disabilities.
