Reunite Anastasia and Damian

Update posted by Anastasia Akhurst On Feb 23, 2018

Is this not the sweetest little babe you have ever seen! We got to have our 2 hour visit today and it was so good to hear his little laugh and all his new sounds. He's on the verge of saying Mama! I hope I don't miss him saying it the first time. Next week we might be getting 3 visits per week for 2 hr time periods!

Please help me bring Damian home. We need more donations to be able to pay for a family lawyer so I can regain legal guardianship of my sweet little angel. Please donate or share the link to this fundraiser so we can get enough money. We are already one third of the way to the goal. Please please help us and pray for us.

Please share my fundraiser page in hopes that more people will donate to help me pay for a lawyer. I won't be able to work until April since I had my gallbladder surgery. I will be moving out from living with John in order to regain my legal guardianship of Damian quicker and I still need more funds in order to pay for the lawyer and other bills/loans I have received. If I can make even $300.00 dollars of donations per day it will take approximately 3 weeks to get to the goal of $5,500.00 and that's only a fraction of the actual costs. Please help Damian and I be reunited for good.

Dear Friends,


As you may know John and I had to be in court on February 15th. As I still do not have a lawyer nor the funds to acquire one to assist me in navigating court with the MCFD, I had to adjourn again for two weeks in order to find legal counsel. I received a call from legal aid on Tuesday February 13th that I will unfortunately not be eligible for legal aid and must go through a process to get a court appointed family lawyer. This may not even be an option if I do not qualify. That process which may not work out will definitely take longer than two weeks as it involves a lot of mailing back and forth. It seems to me that my options are dwindling and I will have to hire a family lawyer privately. This means I will urgently need funds to pay for said lawyer. Please, if you can share this page with as many people as possible I would be ever so grateful. I don't want to lose my baby Damian solely because I cannot financially afford a lawyer. Yesterday I had my gallbladder removed and likely will be unable to return to work until April.

If nothing else, please pray for Damian, John, and I.

Hi all,


Surgery was a success and I'm on the mend. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. Thank you again for all of the donations! Please share the page if you're unable to donate, we've got just over 1/4 of the goal!

Unfortunately, I will likely not be eligible for legal aid and so must pay for a family lawyer on my own. Thank you everyone for your continued love and prayers and support. Please continue to like and share my fundraiser page. We have reached 1/4 of the online goal! I have interviewed a few different family lawyers and I am hoping one will stand out to me who will work the best for my situation. If anyone has any suggestions for lawyers who deal with MCFD cases let me know!

Thank you for everyone who has so generously donated to my campaign.

Last night I had a horrible gallbladder attack but it subsided before I could get to the hospital. My surgery is due February 16th so please pray that I can make it till then.

It is looking like I won't be able to qualify for legal aid at this time unfortunately but that may change when I move in with my parents once the RCMP investigation is completed. Please continue to keep us in your prayers and thoughts.


Remember to share the page if you can't donate or already have dontated so that more people have the opportunity to help.
