Myself and my two beaitiful little nieces have been put in a position that none of us would ever have chosen... but we are in this position, we are working through it and we are happy. My sister had two beautiful little girls (they are both under the age of 5, one a new born. Unfortunately my sister met somebody that took her down a path of destruction, drugs and alcohol leaving the babies to be taken away into care or adoption. I am a single woman and I ADORE the babies more than anything in this world... there is no way they are being taken away when they have me. I work, I provide for the children, they are loved by me beyond belief, it’s been a hard process I have had to fight and fight to keep them. But it’s been worth it and we are happy. Every penny I get goes on them and I am working hard to save the money to give them the education I would like them to have and I believe they will need. I have been on every course known to man on how to be a parent, how to cope with the emotions they will go through growing up etc to do with ‘the mum and dad situation’. How to safe guard them. I have done all this so they get the best out of me, squeeze every bit of ‘best parent’ out of me. We have a nice life (we’ll the girls do haha). There is only us. We are each other family. We adore each other and I want the girls to have the best life... I want them
to be happy, know that they are loved, to be able to depend on me for anything.
I have tried with my sister, I have paid to get her into rehab but she’s not interested. As hard as it is those little babies are my priority.
I have used pretty much all of my savings trying to keep them out of the care system and with me. I fought that hard that the judge ruled that they come straight to me from their home and divert the care road over ruling the local authorities decision. I am still fighting to adopt them and to have them with me forever.
The money I am trying to raise is for legal fees and to keep our head above water until this is over. I CANNOT and WILL NOT let these children go into the care system. They are not losing me as well as their parents. They are three amazing, beautiful, caring and kind little girls and their lives are not being destroyed more that they already have been. I have managed to get them settled and back on track. We currently rent a small
apartment. It was big enough for me and it was my perfect home... now I have these three little diamonds it’s a bit of a squeeze. I want to stay in the area I am in because of the schools. I want to buy a house so the girls have something that is theirs. I want to rebuild their lives and I want them to have he best. I believe education is the key to everything, I believe being kind is a person everybody should be. I believe having good morals and ambition gets you everywhere in life. I’m not poor, I’m not a job seeker, I am
not a scrounger. I work damn hard and everything I earns goes to those girls with love. This isn’t a situation tht any of us asked for but we are in it and we are making the best of it. Our lives have changed quickly and dramatically but I would have had those girls no matter what my circumstance. They are my world and I am theirs.
