Heather Singer DeMaris is organizing this fundraiser.
We are the foster parents to a beautiful little girl who we have known since she was 2 days old. She is now nearly 23 months old, and the court system is planning on moving this wonderful child to her biological father, who has an extensive substance use/ domestic violence history across the country. She has only spent 8 hours of her 23 months with him. We are raising funds for the legal fight to keep her in the the only home she knows, with the people she knows as mommy and daddy. Any funds raised beyond her legal fees (which we were told could reach $35,000) will be used to set up a legal fund for other foster parents in similar situations who want to protect the children who have become part of their family.
Parenthood requires love, not just DNA. And love has made us a family. Please consider helping us protect our family, and please share this with everyone you know.
