Ryan is trying to get his 5 yr old daughter out of foster care. Her mother moved with her to Washington when she was 2 and a half. Ryan is ordered to pay support with no visitation rights. He's lucky to get a text saying how she's doing because the step-dad doesn't allow any contact.
On August 21st we recieved a letter saying his child support was dropped and later found out his daughter was in foster care in Washington State. He was not contacted at all and after 3 days of playing phone tag we finally got the dreaded news of why she was placed in foster.
She was physically and emotionally abused repeated times. The stepfather left bruises on her face and body and the mother failed numerous times to protect her children. Efforts where made to get the mother and children help but she refused everything.
Ryan now has a lawyer (pro-bono) and has to be in Washington on September 9th for a court date and from the looks of the abuse and failure to protect her children Ryan will be able to get his daughter out of foster care and bring her home.
We know $700 is alot but every penny helps. All money is going for gas there and back. This is a father that on the drop of a dime is going across country to get his child. Put yourself in his shoes for a moment and think of what you would do. A parents first instinct is to protect their child and he has the opportunity to finally do that. Any donation is a blessing no matter how small. If you can't donate we will be in need of girl clothes and shoes. Sizes not known yet.
