My name is Samantha Miller. I am a single mother to one amazing, beautiful, smart, & big hearted little girl. Her name is Emma Jayde & she is 5 years old. Since the day she came into my life, I knew that I was destined to be her mommy. She has been my hero. She helped me to realize what life was truly all about. I have dedicated every ounce of my being to her. She is what makes life worth living. She is truly my best friend. God has blessed me with this amazing little human being & I would do anything for her. We have an amazing relationship with each other. We have been with each other every single day, even when I work, up until recently. I am trying to raise funds to hire an attorney to help  me get custody back of my  baby girl. Please let me explain. On June 27th, 2018, the judge gave her father custody due to me not showing up for court. Now I would've never ever missed this court date had I been informed that one was scheduled. I had absolutely no clue that this date was the day to go to court. So the judge granted us joint legal custody with my ex having sole physical custody. I have only been allowed to get to spend time with her every other weekend. Now before all of this happened, I had made sure that she spent time with her father. I made it known loud & clear that he can come get her to spend time with her anytime that he wanted. He got her every single weekend or when he felt like it. I always worked around his schedule & let him take her on his own time. The only time I did not let him take her was when she was too sick to be getting out of the house. We had been separated for over 3 years before he decided to file for divorce & then accuse me of being an unfit parent with no stable home. I moved in with my mother when we separated. It was only supposed to be temporary until I could get back on my feet. Then my mother got Parkinson's disease. Her health has not been so great & she has needed me to help care for her. So to my daughter & I, this is our home. With my mother. I've raised my daughter all on my own with a part time job & no help from her father. He didn't have to pay child support until October of 2017. My family has been the ones to help me get the essential things needed for my daughter. Now my baby girl has been taken from me all because I was never informed of a court date. So I am asking & begging each & every one of you all to please help me bring my daughter back home. This is the only home she has ever truly known. So please if you can, donate to help me pay to hire an attorney so I can get my baby girl back. And if you can't donate, that is ok. But please at least share this so that our story may be heard & we can bring Emma home. I do not have the funds to hire an attorney & I have been turned down 6 times for legal aid. All I want is my baby girl back. Every penny counts. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to listen to my story. God bless you all!
