Thank you for taking the time for coming to my GoFundMe page and reading it. I started this page in hopes of finding some help in getting my daughter Kailaini back from her father, who she is supposed to be living with but is living with his mother and not him. His mother is the reason that he filed for custody, because he had always wanted a daughter but got all boys, so she is using my daughter. The only reason that he has custody of her is because he had filed for custody in Iowa, where he lives, and I never recieved any courtpapers about it so I never knew about the custody hearing and missed it and he won by default, since I wasn't present in court.  They took her right out of my arms with no time to say goodbye to her or anything. My daughter and I were both crying for each other as her father continued to take her away with the officer blocking my path.

Since he has had her out there, she has basically lived with his parents and not with him. He has been moving from friends home to friends home sleeping on their couches and he does not have his own place. He has gone through a few jobs and is incapable of keeping one due to his back problems, which he will not get help for. I believe that he is unstable and unfit to care for Kailani due to his addiction to prescription drugs and other drugs. He is incapable of taking care of himself, let alone taking care of a 3 year old. I, on the otherhand, have a secure job, even if it is only minimum wage, and have a place to stay and I am very capable of taking care of my daughter. 

I worry about the well being of my daughter because his mother, who my daughter is staying with, is an alchoholic and has physically threatened me before with my daughter in the same room. I recently received a letter from his mothers lawyer petioning for gaurdianship, which I will never grant. I do not know where my ex is now, as I have not heard from him for over a month and I have not talked to my daughter either, which breaks my heart. I believe that he is in jail due to something that I have been told recently by people that know him in Iowa.

I have already filed papers to the court in order to get full custody of Kailani. However, I am struggling to get money together to buy the plane tickets that I will need to go out there to bring her back here to Southern California, where I live. I am trying to save what I can from each of my paychecks but havent been able to save much because I have to buy parts for my car to keep it running to get to and from work to keep getting paid.

So I am reaching out to all of you in hopes that someone will be able to help in my time of need. I hate asking for help but I have no other choices at the moment. I have nothing of value that I could sell to make any money from. Every little bit will help me in my fight to get my daughter back. Please share my page so that it may reach others who may be able to help me. Thank you so much!
