As you may know, both of our girls have been sexually abused, which we have been dealing with for a year now.  We have had to use family court lawyers to fight this battle because it is so hard to get an arrest in a sex abuse case, and in order to keep our girls safe, we have had to go another route.  The alleged perpetrator is currently a free man and is requesting visitation again with the girls.  In order to prevent this, we have to continually go to court.  We have been able to make small payments to the lawyer but now find ourselves $5,000 behind and an estimated expense eventually reaching $20,000.  Any money donated to this site will go directly to our legal fees.  If we achieve more than our goal we will place it into a legal fund for future legal bills that may be necessary for years to keep the girls safe.  Thank you for considering a donation.  It's humbling to have to ask.

Our family continues to fight a long, drawn out battle in court that has gone on much longer than anticipated. The effect on our family has been great and we are now considering a move to a different area where we can start fresh and find a way to pay the bills. We have had to home school the girls due to their trauma and with the loss of Anna's income we are no longer able to afford living here. Please pray for us as we look at major changes to help our family recover.

I can't say too much except that despite the terrible sadness of placing Bella back into the hospital for extreme anxiety, some prayers have been answered today. There is a little beacon of hope that wasn't there yesterday... Continued prayers appreciated!

We continue to be amazed by the generosity of people who will help us out. I must admit that God must be trying to teach me something because asking for help has been very, very difficult for me to accept. Thank you again for your support and prayers.

My heart goes out to this family and I pray that the Lord will direct them and keep them safe. Also that they will be able to get these girls protected and kept from any more harm. My prayers are with them and that they will rest in the Arms of jesus and His love for them.

When my hubby asked me what I wanted for our anniversary I told him that I wanted to donate more to your cause. For years upon hearing about abuse of innocent children I have asked God what I should be doing to fight on their behalf. You have given us this opportunity to help in a small way. Thank you.
