We did it

To recoup £3000 that we paid in legal fees

by Timothy O'Brien in Gosport, England, United Kingdom

We went to court to try and stop the forced adoption of our grandchildren. We were made a party to proceedings and realised at the last minute that we should have a solicitor and barrister to help us in court.

We failed to gain SGO (Special Guardianship Order) for our 2 year old grandchild, but still had to pay out the £3000 for the solicitor and barrister, plus we paid out £1,700 for an inpedendant social worker.

The Judgement was given after 4 days, and it was negative against us having our grandchild to look after, and that Hampshire County Council can proceed in getting him adopted. 

We are £4,700 out of pocket and devasted. We set up a previous crowdfunding, but due to a clerical error the project was refunded back to the 4 kind people that contributed. So we are going to try again. 

Hopefully people will ask me what happening, and we will get more support.

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
