My daughter has been through a rough journey so far in her short life. She has endured more than anyone she have to.

 

I am asking for help to free my daughter from the pain of her current legal last name. While also fulfilling a dream she has had for many years.

 

Adoption!!

 

She so badly wants to be free of the weight that her current surname comes with. This would free her of using it on daily basis. It will remove her abuser from all her essential documents. Like her birth certificate, social security card and all future documents.

 

You see, her biological father has been abusive for a majority of her life. I did my best to legally protect her. The courts did not believe the abuse was actually accuring. The abuse continued to progress over time. It peaked when she was 11-12 years old. He and his wife were profoundly cruel, criminally so. It escalated to them locking her in a laundry room for 2 weeks. It was December, one of the coldest winters on record for the area. The laundry room had no heat, she was given no blankets. Once she tried fighting back and she was locked outside overnight, with no protection from the elements. That was the night she attempted suicide. She was 12.

 

Her biological father finally lost custody. His wife was criminally charged for abuse.

I am sharing a small example to explain just how freeing and healing this would be for her. There are so many more horrendous things she endured in that house. It's truly harrowing.

 

Her dream, for so very many years, has been to be adopted by her Dad (legally step-dad).

 

At 3 years old she asked her step-dad if she could call him Dad. With tears in his eyes he told her he would like that very much. That year, at our wedding, she got her own ring and promises. He never faltered. He truly is her Dad. Having it officially would bring us all such joy. It will bring my daughter closure and relief. It would give her a victory.

 

It will cost around $900 to pay for the lawyer, filing fees and document fees. If you could donate anything, how ever small, it would greatly appreciate. I would love to be able to give her this. With some help, she could be given the gift of a lifetime.
