Help Bring the Brellis Boys Home

As most  of you already know,  my younger brother Andy died very unexpectedly just about two weeks ago.  What I did NOT know at the time was that his two boys Cole, age 1 ½ and Stone,  5 months, were taken into state custody and are now with foster families,  as I believe my brother was too ashamed to tell me and didn’t want us to have to deal with the burden of knowing this.

His son Cole is currently with a family in Georgia and his brother Stone is in Tennessee with another family.  This is NOT ok.   The boys have an ENTIRE loving family here in Connecticut that want them home with us where they should be.  Not in foster care.  

I’ve been speaking with the boy’s mother (whom unfortunately at this time is unable to provide a stable environment for the boys), case workers,  attorney’s and the Juvenile Court System in the last few days on how to go about getting both boys to Connecticut,  but more importantly to get them together!    They’ve all strongly suggested that I obtain an attorney from both Georgia and Tennessee to help and protect both myself and the boys.  I know this may be a very lengthy and costly process,  but absolutely necessary as well!    PLEASE help my family and I get these boys out of custody of the state and HOME with their FAMILY?!?    Any contribution at all,   no matter how small will ALL matter and make a difference in these babies lives <3   Thank you so much <3
