My name is Krystle Nixson. A few months before my daughter's 6th birthday, we moved to Waco. The day after her 6th birthday, my husband left us, moving to another state to start a new life with another woman. Through that extremely hard transition and heartbreak, I thought it best for my daughter and I to move back home, to Austin.

About 3 months later his mother made deceptive claims that I was an unfit mother, which she then used to obtain managing custody of my daughter. No proof was given for any of the claims made against me. She called CPS on me with false claims, which CPS quickly ruled out completely. When I asked her why she was doing this she said that when we move, she will never get to see my daughter.

Since that time I have been fighting desperately to get my daughter back. After spending so much time away from me, she has begun to show signs of anxiety and insecurity. It breaks my heart to watch my baby girl go through this. She needs to be back home with her mother.

I have been fighting this fight now for 10 months, in and out of court hearings, traveling back and forth between Austin and Waco to spend every moment I can with her. I’ve followed all of the necessary legal actions to gain back custody of my daughter, amassing over $20,000 in legal fees so far. The next step is to file an appeal which will be another $20-25,000 in legal fees before an end is in sight. Please help me raise the money to defend myself and bring my daughter back home. Anything helps. Seriously. Thank you.
