We humbly and prayerfully come to you about an urgent need to secure the means to keep our family intact. For the past six years we have unwillingly been in a vicious cycle of being separated for great lengths of time and at great distances from my two oldest daughters, including a period of 777 days with absolutely no contact, during most of which we had no knowledge of what city they even lived.
Children need and deserve to grow up and form relationships with both parents and their extended families, as God intended. In fact, this need is crucial for them to grow up understanding the power of unity and love found in the refuge of family. We have continually fought, as we do now, for an equally involved support system in loving, peaceful homes. Our fight is not simply about us; our fight IS about doing what is best for our family, our children, giving them hope, peace, a foundation of faith, self-confidence, mental and emotional well-being and all the tools they need to not only have a stable happy childhood but also to grow into well adjusted compassionate adults.
We have now exhausted all means possible to try to stop this ongoing, unhealthy cycle, both financially and mentally. Throughout the last six years, we financially have only been able to hire attorneys who could barely defend against unrelenting attempts to vilify my wife and myself, let alone who could use the evidence at hand to get justice for us and, most importantly, our daughters.
On November 8, our world was yet again shaken to the core, and we find ourselves, for about the 6th time in six years, alienated from two of my precious children. It breaks my heart to make promises for things that are not up to me when they beg Daddy to never leave them again, and they cannot understand that it is not Daddy’s choice. The last six years, regarding this matter, have been so unspeakably devastating, filled with sadness, fear, anxiety, trying our best attempts to co-parent, that I’ve had to seriously consider decisions that no parent would ever want to make, in order to save the rest of his or her family.
God led us two days ago to an attorney with over 30 years of experience and who immediately saw things as they are and as they have been. So, after much prayer, we are creating this page to finally have the chance at being a consistent and equal part of my daughters’ lives, as we all so desperately need. Please pray and reflect on helping to support our paying for an incredibly expensive attorney that we know can help us end this matter for the last time we will try to keep the girls as part of our lives. Please consider donating what you can, as even small gifts can add up in a huge way, and please pray over our family. Swift action is of the utmost importance. We have a deadline of December 31. We are setting a goal for the estimated amount of the trial so that we can stop this ongoing cycle and be a permanent, consistent part of their lives, but the retainer for the attorney so that I can contact my children is $5000. We still need $3100. Please consider funding what you can. My daughters deserve more peace and stability than they’ve been given the last 5 years.
