Emily is 3-1/2 years old, she will be 4 on Decmeber 3rd, 2013. Little Emily has been living a horrible life with her parents, she has been subjected to beatings and filthy living conditions. Recently Emily was rescued from this horrific life by Child Protective Services and is currently residing in a foster home. Her grandmother was contacted and is doing everything she can to get Emily home with her. Grandma lives in one state and Emily is in foster care in another state, it is a 1400 mile round trip drive to Emily. Grandma has made the trip once 2 weeks ago at the cost of $400. and again Grandma will make another trip there on Aug. 26th for another hearing. Grandma is not wealthy and these trips are necessary but costly and she is in desperate need of your help. Any amount will help, even $5.00 from 100 people would make one more trip. Grandma is frugal and uses your donations wisely, she doesn't rent a car, or fly on expensive flights, no she drives the gruelly 1400 mile round trip, eats on the dollar menu twice a day and stays in hotels that are inexpensive, her first trip she slept in her car on the road as she couldn't afford a hotel when her eyes were weary. We don't like asking for help but we must in this situation. Grandma's goal is to get Emily home with her and into a loving enviroment where Emily never has to worry about being beaten again. So won't you please help us? Please help Emily so she can be with her grandma!
