Bring Marissa HOME <3
My daughter Marissa is 23 months old. At 7 months she was taken from me against my will by her maternal aunt and uncle after her mother decided she neither could nor wanted to raise her. Forcing me to miss her first steps, first words, first day of daycare/ preschool, first fathers day, and so many other firsts that I should have been able to be there for. Since my daughter was taken from me I have done everything in my power to regain custody. However being just 22 when she was taken and working in construction saving the money for an attorney was no small feat as simply retaining a lawyer would cost anywhere from $4,000- $10,000 just to get the process started. I have since gained the legal aide of an attorney in Minnesota where my daughter currently resides and I have begun fighting for custody. My legal fees have already climbed well into the tens of thousands of dollars not including the money lost in travel time to see my daughter and attend court dates. I am asking simply for help. Just because my daughters mother can cast her aside does not mean I shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have the right to raise my daughter. In a society where so many fathers arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t around I implore you to help a father who is prepared to take on full parenting responsibilities with the greatest of excitement. Please help me bring my daughter home so she can have a relationship with not just me but her baby brother who is 2 months old. I can assure you that ANY and ALL money donated to assist me will be used for the sole purpose of legal fees and any additional funds that remain afterwards will be donated to a fatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rights organization to help other fathers like me who want nothing more than to be a dad.
