Please Help us Secure Cecilia’s future.
Almost 2 years ago, Cecilia Rose Lee was an unexpected but quickly welcomed light into our lives. Being her Grandmother is the gift of a lifetime, but also my greatest responsibility. Cecilia’s mother, who just turned 17, is still struggling to find her path in life, and while some day she may be prepared to take on full parental responsibilities, at this time she is simply not able to do so. We have rearranged our entire lives to provide a safe place for this child but recent events have mandated that we make this a legally binding situation. We are in agreement w Cecilia’s mother that legal shared custody is the best thing for all involved. But the expenses involved in this process are putting us in a financial crisis. Just prior to Cecilia coming into our world we had begun an extensive remodel on our 60 year old house. Due to the condition of the house during the remodel, including the discovery of mold and asbestos, it is unsuitable for raising a baby. Our only solution was to go rent a second house in which to raise not only Cecilia, but also 2 teenage girls including Cecilia’s mother, therefore leaving us with the financial burden of supporting 2 households.
So now we find ourselves in need of attorneys’ services for Cecilia’s wellbeing. We are so stretched financially thin having to support two households that even our house remodel is at a virtual standstill. The attorneys’ estimate for the cost of securing Cecilia’s future is a minimum of $5000.
Please help if you can and if you can’t, say a prayer and share. Thank you in advance for all of your positive energy.
