Saving Leilah and Logan

Many of you who know our family personally know of the story behind the emergency placement and guardianship we recently obtained of Crys's cousin's two little girls via CPS. It is a sad story brought on by the opioid crisis plaguing America today, and unfortunately it has ravaged three generations of this particular family. Suffice it to say these girls were in a horrific situation because of heroin and the profound toll the disease of addiction can take on someone's life. These 5 and 6 year old babies have been subjected to multiple unstable and unsafe horrible situations (since birth). Before they came to us they had been through a nightmarish series of things that no child should EVER experience. The bottom line is they desperately needed to be rescued and we are the only option they have left. We have guardianship for 45 to 60 days while CPS works on the case. We have been advised by CPS to file for permanent legal custody via the court system because if we do not they will possibly be returned to the aforementioned situation (or placed in the system) when the clock runs out on the CPS case. We filed for legal custody last week. We are not telling this story to garner sympathy or praise. We are truly grateful to be in the position to save these little ones, and we are willing to commit our lives to protecting and nurturing them till adulthood. We have been blown away by all the help we have received thus far in the form of donations of clothes and toys. We are telling this story because we desperately need financial help to secure a safe stable future for these babies. We need a lawyer for the impending custody case. We do not have a choice, there is simply nowhere else for them to go and we simply do not have the funds to make it all happen on our own. We humbly ask that if you are reading this please consider donating towards our cause. We can not do it without YOU our friends and family.  If you do not wish to donate to the fundraiser itself we can put you in touch with our lawyer and you can pay her directly. Thank you in advance to each and every one of you willing to donate to our cause or share our fundraising efforts. With love and gratitude, Liz, Crys and Paige ❤
