Help Mother and Child Stay Together

I am starting a new campaign for Rachel and Skyla.  Many of you last Summer generously helped raise funds to remove them from an abusive marriage.  The last 8 months they have absolutely thrived.  Two days ago the rug was pulled out.  Rachel's husband has found another new "love" and has decided he wants Skyla solely even though he has provided no child support since they have arrived and is in about $3,000 arrears in back support.  He has hired an attorney, filed for divorce and has accused Rachel of being an unfit Mother, of fleeing Oklahoma without his knowledge and so much more.  Since he has filed in Oklahoma that state has jurisdiction.   She and Skyla MUST appear in court in Oklahoma City at 9am April 5th.  She can then prove her side as she has kept every text he has sent her and other documentation.  She has to have an attorney represent her because of the accusations that have come against her and has found one, but we must pay $2500 in retainer prior to the court date.   We must also raise almost $400 for two airline tickets.  If Rachel and Skyla do not appear in court a bench warrant will be immediately issued for Rachel, she would be jailed and she could lose custody of Skyla.  We are beyond devastated.  If you or anyone you know could help us, please, please donate.  The thought of Skyla being forced to go back into a volitile situation with someone who could care less about her, greatly abuses alcohol just shakes me to my core.   Many of you personally know this situation so please share with everyone.  We need a miracle....thank you.
