Claude Jones  MURRIETA, CA
The judicial system has given my 2 daughters to their abusive mother and drug addict boyfriend. CPS was involved and they do not see anything wrong with my girls living in a garage where her mother cannot even provide for them. I barely get any visitation and they are making me to be the bad person because I am a big black man, because statistics say black men can't take care of children. I love my girls more than life itself and I just want to be able to get an attorney and fight this system right so that my girls can come home. They have cried to the judge and mediators but they still point the finger at me saying I brainwashed them. But I haven't had them in my care for almost 3 years. Please help me and help my girls.

Hi everyone. Just want to thank you for all your donations. And for support. And i just want to shed some light on a situation. Because there have been a few negative comments about me, my children, and my case...

Posting this page and video is to ask for help for my children. Its to show how unfair my kids and i have been treated. I followed all the rules while my ex wife did what ever she wanted and got away with it. Now that i have a lawyer (thanks to everyone here) i have hope and a fighting chance and a voice.

My oldest just turned 10 yesterday. She was not happy. She was being bullied at her own house at her own party and her mother did nothing AGAIN. Its things like these that make me want to expose the truth because my children are screaming for help and no one is listening.

My kids call me and text me crying because they get yelled at for everything by her mothrt, the boyfriend, his parents, his nieces and nephews, etc. And im sick and tired of everyone hurting my kids. My kids tell the school, nothing...I say something its nothing...Tell the cops nothing...
My daughter was getting hit my a 16 year old teenaget daily that stays at their house and the mother did nothing and the judge did nothing. Just a warning to the mother.

So for the people on here making negative comments and to PUT MY CASE out there...Go ahead, I can only assume you are friends with my ex wife or her boyfriend. Because the video doesnt lie. Kids who are abused dont lie about whats going on when they are fed up. The feelings, emotions and screams are not fake.
Things have not changed my kids still cry and scream because they want to stay with me. They say they know they are not loved and no one cares about them at their mothers house. And as a father it puts me to tears because a 10 year old and an 8 year old should not be able to notice these things and comprehend adult conversations and should not feel this way.

This is why this page is here. FOR A VOICE FOR MY CHILDREN.

I will not have court until May. I hope and pray this is the last time I will have to go. I hate going through these things and I wish my girls could just finally be happy.

I thank everyone for their support. I have upped the goal for people who want to keep donating. It is because of all your generosity that I am able to afford this lawyer and still have a fightimg chance. Thank you to all from the bottom of my heart.

On a more positive note, I am going to luncheon events at my daughters' school, its a 3 hour drive just for lunch but it is worth it. And I will have my first father daughter dance with my oldest daughter in a couple weeks. I am very excited and all she asks is if she can be dressed just like a fancy princess just like cinderella. I think I might just cry when I am with her there. I will post some pictures when it happens to show all the supporters a great moment and many firsts with me and my girls.

Watching this video brought me to tears... if you are still looking for some cash. On my next paycheck I will definitely throw some your way... this is just sickening.... it is so obvious that they want nothing to do with her... your youngest I assume the one who went first... the look in her eyes.... she looked defeated... that was horrifying no child should ever feel as such.. I am an atheist but in this particular case. I am praying for you and your beautiful angels who have been going through god only know how much suffering.

I found your story shared by Rickey smiley. Radio personality. I encourage you to reach out to him. This video is being shared across social media everywhere. I could see the fear in your daughters eyes when she looked in her mothers direction. I'm hoping you get the blessing God has planned and bring your girls home. Your story touched my heat. God Bless.

A court should not be claiming that you brainwashed the children. I don't want to sound sexist, because that is not at all what I mean when I say this, but it is a very clear example of courts favoring a woman, no matter what the case may be. "A mother should be able to have her kids!". This doesn't happen too often from what I can tell, but it appears to be the case here and I am not interested in seeing it happen to a decent man who just wants to let their kids live in a home without the fear of being physically or mentally harmed...

Claude be careful about taxes on your gofundme. I think once you reach 20k, you'll receive a 1099 form. I would hate for you to get taxed on these donations.

Will try to help and share. How much do you need to fully fund your fight for custody? You are a great father!!! I pray you get them back. Maybe some updates will help spread your story; such as background, what's happening now, and what happened after video. Or a video diary? Just a thought.

This is sad and exactly what happened to my brother and his children. I love what I do. We help protect families with top law firms for low monthly rates so when things like this happens they are already protrctedcsnd have a real shot at justice. If someone can connect me with this gentleman I know I can be of service and save this family huge amounts of stress and money for legal fees!! My Jah hear his prayers and keep his family protected.

This video, just breaks my heart. The absolute look of fear in one of your girls eyes when she looked over at her mom, made the hairs on my arms stand on end. I don't have extra money, however when I do, I will be helping you out. I will pray for their safe and rightful return to you, until it happens. Please do not ever give up, those baby girls of yours clearly want nothing to do with her and were trying so hard to understand why they had to go with her. Please keep posting updates. And may God be with you during this process.
