Support Lisa's Mothering

I met Lisa almost a decade ago when her daughter  was in toddler group with my nephew.  We immediately hit it off.  Her midwestern demeanor, her sweet smile and  her enormous patience have became a staple at our house.  Lisa is a single mother and she and her daughter have become part of our family. We have shared, as mothers, happy moments, sad moments and daily challenges these past 8 years. I have also watched her struggle to co-parent with her daughter's father who has been a critic of her parenting along the way.  As is the case with many single mothers, Lisa has financially struggled to keep up with the legal co-parenting matters pertaining to her daughter.  Most recently she has been asked again to return to court. 
     Despite whether the child's father has a strong legal case or not, it is clear that he is hoping to use the legal system and his expansive wealth to assert power over a woman who can not afford this financial legal burden. We need help raising money for a legal retainer with a good attorney who can advocate for Lisa and her daughter. As we have seen this past year, there is power in the group voice of women. Please join us in sending the message that a single mom can't be bullied. Lisa has provided a beautiful loving life for her child. Please help her continue her mothering journey.
Lisa had thought court time with her daughter's father was behind them but she was served June 27th.
