    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    On the 22nd of January i became the most happiest person alive, I became a mum to the most beautiful girl i have ever laid my eyes on, we were kept in hospital until the 26th of January due to complications, when we were release we had our baby girl to ourselfs, on the 31st of January we noticed strange blue marks on our baby, knowing i had the midwife the next day i didn't rush her to hospital, the midwife came the next day and i pointed these marks out to her, she go onto the hospital and refereed us she mentioned Mongolian blue spot, when we arrived at the hospital we had to wait several hours to be seen by a midwife to have her obs taken then again to be seen by a doctor, the doctors first response was she looks like a well looked after happy baby. i was then kept in over night, this is when the hell started. i was greeted by 2 social workers and a police officer the next day (2nd Feb) i was told they are taking my baby girl!!!!!!! we have been arrested and bailed pending evidence bail has now been dropped but the case is still under review. we have been dragged through court and our names dragged through the mud. on the 26th July we got put into foster care with our little girl, Craig didnt do to well but i was doing great so i stayed in, they had passed us from piller to post ,moving us from here to there, without communicating with me. we had a final court date on Wednesday the 25th October to find that our baby girl is being put up for adoption. My heart is shattered they have lied and cheated their way through this whole case to get what they wanted, i was then told that there is very little grounds to be able to appeal. so they have allowed me to create a bond with my baby to them rip me away from her. Im not doing this for attention this is real life stuff. social services are ruining innocent lives all because they can, they haven't taken into consideration my heritage or the fact they could have been something else. things have been held back from us.
