(( We need your help, like never before.))
PLEASE HELP my sister, Lauren Ariel Brown. She is in the midst of every mother's WORST NIGHTMARE. To make a very LONG story short, she allowed her son to visit ...his father for Christmas. Her son's father has not been active in his life for years (Kaprice will be 6 next month). This is only his father's 2nd time visiting with his son, he provides nothing to care for his son. He does not work, because he actually owes thousands of back child support for another son that he has (and does not support) who is in his teenage years. Lauren has had sole custody (although not through the courts) and has been the sole provider of their son since birth. When she arrived to Texas to pick up her son, 4 days ago, his father assaulted Lauren at the airport (busting her lip and pushing her into a wall) and refused to hand him over to her. He then left with their son and she has not seen him since. He has actually filed a restraining order against her that prevents her from removing her son from the state of TX and has also filed for custody. Of course, once the courts hear everything, all of the facts, he will surely be ordered to return Kaprice to Lauren's custody... BUT in order for her to retain a lawyer there in TX to reverse the restraining order and allow her to return to Vegas with Kaprice, she must pay the attorney a minimum of $3500. She must also retain a lawyer in Vegas to file for temporary emergency custody, which will also cost $3500, here. So a total of $7000 for legal costs, which is all needed ASAP.
Not only that, but she must now purchase 2 new return flights for her and Kaprice and she has also had to stay in hotels since she has been stuck there. She only went there with a day bag of clothing as she was planning to return the same day with Kaprice. You all, this is unimaginable. She is there ALONE. No friends. No family to stand by her side. Thankfully, the grace of God is with her and He is her rock, her peace, her comfort, and her strength during this time. I am asking that ANYONE who can give ANYTHING, please do so.
Please also PRAY. Pray for her baby. You can imagine how he must be feeling right now... watching his mother get hurt and literally being torn from her arms... You can imagine how Lauren is feeling. Please pray for them both. Please help us to get them home; Him back in school. Help us to put an end to this nightmare. Anyone who is blessed to know Lauren personally, knows how much she loves and adores her son, how hard she works to provide for him, how loving and kind she is, and how she gives soooo much of herself to help others... Now, she is need of help. If you can help, please do. EVERY LITTLE BIT counts. No gift/donation is too big or too small. Thank you all so very much. We love you and appreciate you.
