Help me bring Eloise home

Following an incident earlier this week Eloise was taken into custody by the Italian social services. Despite our best efforts and those of the Australian government I now have no other choice but to fly to Italy to have her released into my custody.

I am seeking money to help cover the airfares, accommodation and legal fees for both myself and Eloise. Any additional funds will go to helping Eloise resettle in australia as she won't have much with her.

For those who do not know my daughter Eloise she is a beautiful, lovely, bright intelligent 9 year old who is wise beyond her years. I have not been able to be in direct contact with her while in care and the Australian consulate are unable to release her whereabouts until I arrive.

This is a horribly stressful time for all of Eloise's family both here and in Italy and any contributions you are able to help with will help immensely.
