My little brother is 13, his mother was stabbed to death earlier this summer. Two weeks later his half-sister, (age 24) who he has never really known, showed up with court documents saying that she had gotten custody of him. She then took him from his grandmother whom he was happily staying with, along with enjoying the stalbe environment she could provide to him.
When his half-sister took him, she would not allow him to use his phone to call or communicate anyone he knew and loved. Instead she surrounded him with her family (many of whom he had never even met, the rest he's seen a couple times in his life). Luckily we got him back to his grandmother with the help of a very good attorney. He came home traumatized by his experiences the preceding week. Now, unfortunately, this reversal of custody is only temporarY until the trial is over. Since then I've sold all I can, taken every loan possible, and maxed all my credit cards to keep paying the attorney so we can keep fighting this fight.
The judge has already spoken to the child, and the child has already told him that he wants to be with his grandmother. Knowing this his half-sister and her attorney continue to drag the case on. Now, I've reached the end of my rope, I'm looking for any help I can must from the sympathetic online community. Please help me keep my little brother safe, and along with the possiblity of a good future ahead of him.
He plays football, loves Xbox, has many friends he talks to everyday on his phone, makes good grades, and cant wait to be old enough to get a job. He won't be able to do any of these things if his half-sister gets him.
Please, help me help him. Thank you all for everything and god bless. Many thanks out there to anyone reading this. Even if you cannot afford to directly donate, please spread the word and help me keep his future a possibity!
