Saving Summer Rose & Riley
Organized by: Steph Jay
My two beautiful girls are in the custody of my Extremely abusive parents who are using them to be able to continue abusing me, plus they abusing the girls as well. I am disabled and on a fixed income and I Need representation. The Court Refuses to provide a court appointed attorney because, "the case isn't that serious," their Exact words, Even though I Over qualify for it. This battle has been going on for 3 1/2 Years and The ONLY reason I have been given on why I cannot have my children and is because of my physical disabilities, because I am in a wheelchair most of the time due to my hip sliding out of socket ALL the time, I am "incapable of being a mother". Yes the Judge said this in court. The Court and the Department of Children and Families Admit that they see that my parents are using the girls as pawns and being extremely verbally and mentally abusive to me in front of the girls, but I just "need to Worry about myself and let them keep doing what they are doing." They refuse to anything about my parents verbally and mentally abuse the girls because "it isn't abuse if you cannot physically see the marks." The court is also letting my parents Violate Court Orders And My Parental Rights. Right now I haven't seen Summer Rose in 7 months and I haven't been able to talk to her either when I call every night, and now they are with holding Riley as well, I can't even petition the court for Another hearing until both my husband and I have proper legal representation. The corruption runs deep so in order to save my babies I NEED legal representation. I fear for my children's lives, I am in this wheelchair because of the physical abuse I suffered at my father's foot. Yes foot, I was literally kicked in the butt like he was trying to punt a football Every night from the age 7 maybe 8. It caused my spine and pelvis to twist, there was further damage from my accident, but the twist in my spine was already pretty prominent by 4th grade. My mini me Summer is 7 1/2 now and they treat her how they treat me, even calling her my name. They have been telling the girls that if they don't behave that they will give them away to strangers and they will NEVER see me Again. Nothing they do anymore surprises me, and with their most recent actions my fear of them taking off with my daughters and murdering them is Extremely great, and our support network of mental health workers, friends, and family share this fear. I don't know if the amount I posted will be enough for 2 attorneys and Any other added complications that are pop up in this battle to save my children. Anything you are able and willing will be Greatly Appreciated by us and the girls, and by helping you are literally saving two beautiful little girls from their extremely abusive and mentally unstable grandparents. Thank you for even reading my plea straight through, I know it's a lot but you needed to know why I am so desperate right now. Thank you again and I hope that you have a Sparkling day / night.
