Help Jeanne Keep Custody of Brianna
She left behind her 3 year old daughter, Brianna. Dawn and Brianna had been living with our aunt, Jeanne.
Dawn had some health insurance, so her medical bills should mostly be taken care of. However, she did not have any funeral plans or life insurance, so all remaining costs will be left to her parents.
Dawn's husband, Jason, is in prison until November, and has been for the majority of their marriage and Brianna's life. Jeanne has been an integral part of raising Brianna, certainly more than her father.
Jeanne would like to continue raising her granddaughter, to help keep stability in her life and ensure she has consistency of care. She has consulted a lawyer, and has been quoted about $4000 to get custody of Brianna.
We are raising money to help Jeanne cover the legal costs and any other costs associated with Dawn's passing. Any extra funds will go toward Brianna's education.
Please help us keep this beautiful little girl in a safe, healthy and loving environment!

Jason did not sign the custody paperwork. Now the lawyer will present it to the judge. Jason will have 2 weeks to respond, and if there is no response, the judge will be able to assign custody.
Please keep them all in your prayers, that they may all stay well. Brianna is starting preschool, however, until custody is resolved, she has no medical insurance, so we hope she stays well!
Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. We really appreciate it!
I am so sorry to hear about dawn. I am not able to donate but you all are in my prayers. I will especially be praying for that sweet little girl and her grandma. Hope all turns out the way that is best for that little girl.
