August 2016 I learnt that my nieces were taken into foster care. The sad thing was, they've been there since November of last year and no family members were contacted or informed.
I approached the local authority, putting myself forward to be long term carer for the girls but was told it was too late. The local authority are not willing to do a full viability assessment. Without a viability assessment I will not get my girls. I do not have a solicitor to accompany me to court, I am currently studying and unable to finance myself. It's very daunting being in court, where people are using terminology you clearly cannot understand. All I want to do is give unconditional love and stability to the girls as I am giving my son. I am desperately trying to keep my girls out of the care system, so here I am pleading for you to help us.
Please help me fight for my girls, so they can live with their aunt and cousin.
We all know that children are our future, and they need to be love, and given warmth and stability in order to become great men and women of tomorrow. They have the right to be with family who will provide unconditional love and support and who will also embrace their culture and heritage, in order to promote their identity. There are phenomenal testimonials of people having remarkable experience of the care system. This is about fulfilling the girls wishes. Longing for hugs and kisses and being in the presence of families and not strangers.
Please help me fight for my girls. "It takes a village to raise a child".
Please donate to help my nieces dreams become a reality.
Funds raised will only go towards paying for a solicitor and getting the neccessary assessment.
Thank you all in advance. I will keep you updated on things.

I know for those who don't know me personally would like more information about the cause and I can respect that. Due to the sensitivity of the court proceedings I can give certain information that could jeopardise me getting the girl. I respect and understand your points of view but I cannot risk losing the girls. My hope is that you will try and understand my reason for not putting too much out there. Blessings to all.
