Help Me Keep Sage Safe

Hello Friends, Sage and I need your help. 

A couple months ago, Sage opened up to me about how his father has been mistreating him. His father has been heavily drinking and physically and emotionally abusing him for months. Sage no longer feels safe being with him and I am in the process of fighting for full custody. I hope that this process will be a catalyst for Sage's Father to get the help that he needs, so that Sage will someday feel safe to spend time with him. Sage is already experiencing deep sadness and anxiety from the things his father has done. For all of you who have spent time with Sage, you know how sweet of a soul he is. He does not deserve this pain. I am going to do everything in my power to keep him safe and help him heal. With SoulShine Healing being closed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, I am struggling financially. I have already spent over $1,600 on lawyer fees, just to get me through my first hearing. I can expect to spend at least $2,000+ more. It is not easy for me to ask for this help, but I don't know what else to do. If you are in the position to help in any way we would greatly appreciate it. Every little bit will help and no donation is too small.
