My Fight for Ioana's Freedom
Organized by: Felicia Milian
I am Felicia, a mother who raised alone her girl for 14 years. Two years ago, we wanted to move to Europe. Instead, we found ourselves trapped in Ithaca, NY, by a fake court case. My girl was forcibly retained in this town, against her will and against my decision, as her primarily caregiver for all her 14 years of life.
Over the past three years, I built a museum technology startup which I was just morphing into an e-travel platform. Always engaged in community and educational projects, my girl and I also built a non-profit organization for children arts education. A huge leap of hope from her first written words, my girl is now an avid fiction writer and she is passionate of digital design. We'd love to further build happiness and beauty around us and, for this, we need your help.
Please help us weather these hard times which brought unnecessarily and so unfair problems into our lives. This fund will help us with the legal process.
I would love to give you updates on our lives and work. Checking out doremihope.org and esverta.com will give you a glimpse into where we are now. My girl will post fragments of her stories and she'll be happy to share more of her writings with anyone interested.
