Help my mom move closer to family

If you know Donna, you know how hard she works and how much she loves her kids and her family. For the past 8 years or so, she has been trapped in a situation that many aren't able to get themselves out of. But she fought, and she is halfway there. Now it's time to bring her and all the kids home. I created this fundraiser to help my mom pay for the lawyer that will get her and her kids back up north to her family where she belongs. She is a single mother raising 4 kids that are still under 18, in a small town with nothing to offer and no family to support her. If we can help raise this money for the lawyer, she will be able to move up north where her and all the kids will have better opportunities, and support from her family. I have been helping my mom fight this fight for the past 8 years, and now that we're almost at the finish line, I need some extra help. If you are able to give anything at all, it would greatly help. I want my mom and my siblings to be happy and safe, and having them close to the rest of her family is the best thing for them!

Thank you so much in advance for any help you are able to give. I also think any words of encouragement you can send her way will help lift her spirits! This is a hard fight, and I know it can be trying on her. Thank you so much!
