These wonderful three children have been removed from their family care by CPS. The parents were going through relationship troubles, thus, the children have been living with their paternal grandparents since their respective births. The children’s mother herself comes from a traumatic childhood with an abusive and documented sexual abusing father, who was found guilty of incestuous sexual assaults, and is currently sitting in a federal prision hopefully for a very long time.

These paternal grandparents have been fighting for more than 39 months to have the children returned to their home, without success. A sum of well in excess of $230,000 has already been spent. This sum represents their life savings and all their retirement funds and assets. This is a large sum to the common person, but represents 'chump-change' in comparison to the funds available to a government CPS department!

The three grandchildren now ages 11, 9, and 4 years old, were apprehended by CPS without a Court Order. NO COURT ORDER!
They were apprehended on unsubstantiated beliefs, based on their mother's accusations, and contrary to the evidence, about who sexually molested them. Thus summarily removing them from a safe home, not based on facts but on hatred. The grandparents have been their continuous primary care givers since birth.

It is important for members of the child's natural family to continue playing a role in the child's development. But the grandparents are denied all access, as the "natural family" and the primary caregivers, with these three grandchildren. There is no access/contact with them. They have not seen them for two plus years. The children are placed in different foster care homes, and moved between homes too frequently due to lack of foster care availablilty.

In foster care, they are bewildered, may think they have been abandoned and rejected by their primary care givers since birth; they are hurting, confused, angry, and frightened, wondering what they did to be taken away from safe caring home. The family remains committed to bringing these children back to their safe haven home of origin and are doing extraordaniry things to bring they home. To do so we need money to hire a lawyer as we are retired and have no more resources to pay for the lawyers.

This family now needs the funds to prosecute the maternal grandfather to the full extent of the law, and to ensure that all charges are on a solid foundation.  

Please help us fight this large government monster and return the children to their safe and loving home.

Contact me for more information.
 
My name is Mary-Jane Smyth and I am an old friend of the extended family living in the Toronto (GTA) Ontario, Canada.  I've known the immediate family since before their children were born and have met the CPS-abducted children many times. They truely are darlings!
As mentioned above, the family is severely restricted from communicating publicly due to several ongoing cases and CPS controlling the court case. 

The funds are going to the family and, God willing, when there will be substantial funds we will funnel this directly to the lawyer represeting the family. The firm has agreed to accept cheques directly from Wepay.


Thank you for your time and God Bless.

A small update. The Paternal grandparents are still working diligently to get the children home. CPS has relocated the children away from the Judges order that the children not be removed from the district. Contrary to a judges directive, apparently a paternal 2nd cousin has also been visiting with the children. It is said by the children's mother that she has had contact with the children on a recent birthday outing. It should be noted that the birth mother has several charges pending in that she was a willing participant in the initial abuse event the children experienced at the hand of their maternal grandfather. This is a case that is on going. The paternal grandparents are the ones fighting to get the precious children returned. Stay tuned for further updates, such as information from recent court hearings about the appeal shortly.

We were informed that the children are in despair, they are asking to come back home to their Grandparents.
They were assured that they will come home and the appeal is looking very positive. They were told that lots of people are praying for their safe return soon!
Yes. you heard it correct that the children are in despair. In recent testimony they children exclaimed several times they wanted to go home. The oldest apparently even was crying and pleading to the attorneys that were questioning them to allow them to go home. The CPS primary person told them and the grandparents they are doing everything to let the children go where they request (apparently they have a directive to take into consideration the children's wishes) but they refuse. Information was received that the CPS officials communicated via email that the children will not be returned to their grandparents or fathers home regardless of any court findings. Its clear that this is a political battle and these children are caught in the crossfire by a vindictive and terrible government organization. Your support is greatly needed!

Small update. I was informed that I initially got the amount incorrect. Their total investment so far has been over 200k but they needed a much smaller amount to feed lawyers and bring the kids home. I was also informed the family has had some positive headway in the court process. Appeal is moving smoothly although the CPS lawyer has pulled some very dirty tactics. The children remain still at the mercy of the CPS. During a recent trial appearance two of the children expressed their desire to return home, even crying during examination exclaiming they missed their parents and grandparents and wanted to return. Well they certainly work hard to return them.

So nothing new has happened. The grandparents continue to fight but now they are self representing and consulting with lawyer-acquaintances from time to time. They are deep into the appeals process and are having some successes! CPS continue to move the children around, separating them then bringing them back together for events and ignoring their cultural and religious heritage. Various sources report on the condition of the children and their health has been deteriorating. One of the girls has been multiple times to the clinic and an investigation has shown she has had some physical abuse. Its unclear exactly what or from whom at this time but they continue to investigate and build cases against CPS. So please keep these children in your prayers and they will soon be returned to their home.
