Our campaign is to help raise money for Legal Support and funds to pay bills we can't pay for because of the ordeal we have had to endure since March 18th.

Our story is long (but totally worth it) so please bare with me...

I have suffered from seizures for 2 1/2 years and on march 18th I had one of my worst grand mal seizures everrr. I couldn't afford the $325 a month medicine since I wasn't able to get on my hubby's insurance until August when new member signups opened up. I was researching for natural cures and came across marijuana. I smoked it mainly because that was only way to really get it in my system. I was also still nursing my youngest son and had ZERO idea it would even transfer. :( #bible On march 18th I was transported via ambulance to Huguley hospital in Burleson, Tx and when they asked if I nursed I said yes not even thinking it would be a big deal. The ER made me pee in a cup for a drug test which is odd. Of course I don't remember this because I was still coming out of a horrible grand mal seizure and was given some high dose seizure meds when I arrived at the Hospital. I was discharged 4 hours later and they immediately called CPS on me without us knowing and they showed up at our hs that evening and removed our 5 kids. Never ONCE did a Judge sign anything so we found out we "voluntarily" handed over our kids when we didn't need to. CPS is great at scaring you without letting you know your rights. *eye roll* (I suggest knowing your rights when it comes to CPS)  I was a sahm that homeschooled our kids as well as a bible school teacher for 7 years. I am not a bad person nor neglected our children so we were just stunned and crushed at everything that went down. They xrayed and drug tested our youngest (22 mths) and he tested slightly positive for cannaboids. No one was ever affected by the marijuana or hurt. I was baffled at all of these accusations. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy on September 13th. I can't say I am glad how everything came about with my diagnosis but it did make me open my eyes to this incurable disease. We dedicate our life to our kiddos. With the whole dilemma we have been going through since march our first attorney we wanted to hire (who is the head guy for DFW NORML) wanted to know if we wanted to go public with our story but I just wasn't sure yet because of the CPS case. CPS ended up giving our case to the Burleson Police Dept and the BPD detective could've dropped the case but instead decided to pursue "child endangerment" charges against my Husband and I because I nursed while smoking. It has now gone to the Johnson County DA aka Dale Hanna and we are awaiting trail in March. Now that the CPS case has officially been closed since September it is now back on my mind. Do I think this campaign will actually help?? I have no clue. I am VERY open with our story and have no fears in sharing this whole ordeal. Our story is one that should be heard and I hope it touches the hearts of many people out there. No family should be ripped apart because of a natural medicine that is being legalized all over the US. This is such an expensive situation and we are just making ends meet with bills and a ton of late fees. I don't know tho because it sounds crazy to me but our lawyer thought it was a good idea. Our babies are now home and all of them are being homeschooled and loved on nonstop. I hate that a family was torn apart because of a law that should be passed for legalization ( *ahem* Greg Abbott). We never lost the smile on our face throughout this all. We remained positive even tho we were breaking down inside.

**PLEASE help support us wether it be your voice, presence at court, or a donation to help cover Legal Representation and catchup on past due bills**
