Story

I met my Husband Sascha 22 years ago when he was on Holiday in Scotland. He is from Germany. It was literally love at first sight (although I think the tequila shots helped) I was 18 and basically threw my new Art school placement out the window and went to Germany to be with him.

It was a yoyo effect for a few years. We lived in the UK, then Germany, then UK and back to Germany. We have 3 beautiful girls. Aged 17, 13, 7.

In 2012 we made one final decision to move back to the UK as I suffer with depression and needed to be "home" for my own wellbeing. I could'nt go back to Scotland because I have family members there that are the reason I have mental health issues. So we chose England. I have an uncle here, who was our helping hand. Him and his partner supported us until we could find "our house". So after a year of homelessness, a lot of tears, and feeling worthless, we were offered the place we now call HOME. For the first time ever we are settled & planned to grow old in this house, and share sunday roasts with our future grandkids. I even planted a cherry tree, hoping when it fruits that my future grandchildren & I could harvest them and make Cake & Jam.

We came here with nothing and have over the years managed to buy furniture, decorate our house to the standard that we always wished for. We have two cats. Buddy a ginger british shorthair, and Ninja a Narcistic Siamese. They are such a large part in our life that we couldn't bear to live without them.

So this is it.....

Sascha, my husband a German national.

3 Girls with dual nationality. And myself who is british

Our 3 girls are all on German passports. We have been advised to prepare ourselves for the worst. That my Husband and my oldest daughter do not fufill the "settled status" requirements, and could be deported. Essentially this would ruin everything we have. My mental health was improving, but it would certainly not cope with the seperation from my lifelong soulmate, husband and needless to say my daughter who is a beautiful budding artist, and although she would be 18 post Brexit she is always my Baby.

Her sisters and her are so close they would'nt be able to understand the world anymore if they got seperated. I even struggle with that one and I'm 40!

We already feel that Brexit has created so many Gaps in our society and that we are not welcome in "my country". So therefore we would all leave as a unit As painful as this scenario would be and as difficult as it is going to be we may have no choice and leave before they tell us to go!

We are on low income at the moment which leaves us no extra cash as such for, cats vets in order to take them with us, flights, removal for our belongings, funds for 3 months deposit for new property which is going to be diffcult anyway as the housing situation is all private and diabolical. On top of this our youngest daughter doesn't even speak german! Both her and our middle daughter are exceptional students and are thriving in school. This would change dramatically due to the language change.

Initially we need more than £5,000 but we are asking for this amount of the funds to be raised and we are saving the rest. So please find it in your hearts to donate what you can so that we can stay together. I hang my head in shame that I have to resort to this... But I hope you understand. This is my family, and we deserve to stay together.

Thank you taking the time to read this. Every penny and every share is more than appreciated. xxx

    Hi it would appear that I have some potentially good news! I have been advised today that our Children do automatically have British citizenship by descent and are therefore entitled to their UK passport.I am hopeful that „when “our children physically hold their UK passports in their hands that Our Nightmare is close to over!.We are grateful for every heart felt message,signature, share and donation that you guys have done for us! We are hoping to raise the cost that we face for passports settlement fees and translation of all docs. 🙏🤞
