Do you ever see something going on and feel helpless? I do, a lot! Let’s share our helplessness and maybe we can help each other. Want to try? Share your story in the comments or put a link to your story in the comments and maybe we can change our world together. Please don’t put world hunger or giant things like that. Let’s start small and share our personal challenges and give each other the support, understanding and compassion we all deserve.
Here’s my first one:
I have these really wonderful nieces and nephews. Their home-life is VERY difficult, especially sense they have no home right now. I want so much to bring them here to live with us. I want to get them out of their current situation and give them the lives they deserve. Unfortunately, it’s far from that simple. First, the courts and DCYF are already involved due to issues way before I got involved. The courts won’t recognise me because I live out of state; way out of state.
I can except that I can’t help the adults involved but it seems so unfair that I can’t do anything for the kids. If I give the adults involved money, it doesn’t get to the kids. I live too far away to give physical support. Right now I send care packages to the kids but I feel like that really doesn’t help and it looks like they may end up in foster care very soon. What can I do?
