Help Reunite Eleanor, Owen and Britt

My wife and I are seeking assistance in paying for reunification therapy for myself and my daughter, Eleanor, whom I have not been permitted by her mother to see since 15 February 2017. After a long process of pursuing shared legal custody and visitation, prolonged by court closings during this pandemic, a judge has agreed that Eleanor should have her father, but due to the duration of time since we've seen each other and considering Eleanor's age (9 years old), this reunification is mandated to begin through the help of a family therapist. Because my insurance, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, does not cover this modality of treatment, we have agreed to pay all expenses for this therapy out-of-pocket, as nothing is stronger than our love for her. Still, the cost of the initial intake sessions will be $150 for each of us, followed by $300 per session following that, which the therapist has recommended to occur biweekly in order to provide her assessment to the court for review in February. We are asking for any assistance you may be willing to provide in helping us reach our goal, which has been, through almost four years of heartache, only to be a family again with our dear Eleanor.
