My beautiful, darling baby girl Julie was abducted from me and taken to America on 1 October 2012. It has been a long, painful 16 weeks since then which has involved a complicated and expensive legal process.
I've lost nearly everything since that date and have been reliant on friends and family financially up until this point.
I last saw Julie for a short week in early December. Getting to America was very expensive, and I also had to take care of my own transport and accommodation while I was there.
I have a court date in Atlanta in a few weeks and am again faced with mounting costs I cannot afford.
I desperately want to continue the fight for my daughter, I have given up my house, sold my car and am selling the van I used for work. I am not the first parent that this has happened to, and those who I have been in contact with can offer no advice to help me finance my case. There is no legal aid for a legal battle like this.
I have already spent thousands of pounds which I don’t have, and this is my last resort. I desperately need help trying to cover some of the legal fees, getting to court and staying there for 1 week.
If you think you can spare anything to help me, I will be eternally grateful. I am out of options.
If you do not have the cash and could maybe auction a cd on ebay and contribute the profits, I would also really appreciate it. Everything helps.
