I am starting this campaign to fund a retainer for an attorney I recently hired for myself to represent me against my own mother for custody of my daughter. In 2013, when my baby was still a baby, I moved myself and her to Texas. We lived at my grandmother’s house along with my mom. That house is my babygirl’s home. It’s all she’s ever known. In 2016 my license was stolen and used to fill fraudulent prescriptions. Unfortunately I was sentenced to 3 yrs in prison. During my incarceration, my daughter was under my mothers care due to my signing of a voluntary caregiver agreement for medical care and school,ect. I came back home September 2018 and started working after 2 wks. I was working 65/70 hr weeks. I was tired to say the least. My mother was caring for my daughter a lot of that time. So now with that being said brings me to this: my grandmother passed away in November and the house is being sold. Now that she doesn’t feel obligated to live in Texas to care for my grandmother, my mother has filed for sole custody of my daughter with NO geographical restrictions! I do not claim to be the perfect mother. Who is? But I do claim my love for my babygirl and cannot bear even the thought of Her moving to another state without me. I’m her mommy!!!! She already lost her grandmother, the only home she’s ever known, and not to mention the absent father she constantly asks about. Please help us. She needs me. I need her I have paid $1500 to an attorney already out of my tax refund. I still owe $500/wk for the next 8 wks. I’m already behind a week. This is literally impossible to do on my own. Have no other support system. Clearly. Thank you and God Bless.
