My niece was basically kidnapped Here's the GoFundMe:
Here's the summary:
My sister, Mariah, just left a toxic and manipulative relationship that was becoming physically violent. She left fearing for her safety and well-being, and brought her one year old daughter with her to our parents' home.
A few days ago, the father came to take the baby for the night, and while he refused to talk with Mariah about their strained relationship, she assured him that she would never keep his child from him.
After he took her, he cut off all communication. She tried for days to text and call both him and his family members, and never got an answer from anybody. Currently we do not know where her daughter is or who she is with.
Next thing we know, she gets a summons to go to court, because her (now ex) fiancé was suddenly filing for full custody of her daughter, claiming that Mariah was an unfit parent (drugs, alcohol and other false claims). Mariah is an amazing, mature and loving mother and
I will be providing the condensed version: Her sister left an abusive relationship with her one year old daughter. Well the ex came to take the baby for the night, and then cut off all communications.
Her sister has now received a court summons because the father of this child has decided to try for custody rights. They've found a lawyer that would be awesome for the case, but the fees are expensive: 2 grand down plus 200 a day.

Commissions PLZ...need vet trip and CT scan helpSo I am really needing commissions or donations to help both me and Lanyiah...I have a CT scan on Monday and my cell bill is due soon. Today...I discovered some odd areas on Lanyiah's skin and was concerned enough to shave those spots to get a better look and was shocked to find hard lumps pushing up through the skin which looked very painful and highly abnormal. I'm keeping the areas clean but it needs to be assessed by a vet and I'm pretty sure she'll need antibiotics at the very least.
Any style you find in my gallery that strikes a fancy, please consider commissioning one for your own! I have no other avenue of income. Any help is appreciated.
More or less, she and the hubby live paycheck to paycheck, and it's hardscrabble. She has medical issues that prevent her from being able to hold down a conventional job (and has had trouble obtaining disability in the past because the government are dicks). They also do their best to take care of the family pets. She's offering commissions to raise money for her CT scan and a trip to the vet for one of the dogs, who has a severe case of allergies and unknown lumps that need to be addressed. She's got some great art and a pretty quick turnaround on her pieces. It's quality work. I can vouch for that.
I know we're all hard up for money at times, but if you can give, do. If not, pass this on.
