On October 3, 2011, John and I took in my 3 nephews, ages 3 months, 10 years and 14 years old. This was supposed to be a temporary placement, however 3 years later the children are still under our care. Our court system takes so long to finalize these types of CAS matters which has taken a stressful and financial hardship on our family. All three children have finally developed stablility and have found themselves in a loving and caring home. We have taken all the correct steps to provide a permanent home for these children. Which included the Pride Program and the Home Safe Assessment. We have hired a lawyer and are fighting for full legal custody of all children. The two older boys, Jared now 13 and Abram now 17 are old enough to make the decision on where they want to reside. However Sebastian now 3 years old does not have a voice in this decision. He has been with John and myself since he was 3 months old and has become very attached to us. Sebastian is very happy and content in the environment we have provided him to live in. We are seeking financial help because the mandate in Ontario is to return the child to the bio parents unless it is proven that it would cause irreparable emotional trauma to the child if he is removed from us. In order to prove this we need to have an Attachment Assessment done by a certified professional doctor. This assessment can cost up to $10,000 - $13,000. The retainer on its own is $5,000 and has to be paid by October 15, 2014. CAS has agreed to help pay $2500.
