    Please read this heartbreaking story of my 13 year old twin daughters being held in their fathers custody against their wishes and the environment that they live in is so unacceptable that I am going to any length possible to provide evidence. He has been a known drug addict all of his adult life. We have been through so many years of painful failed court attempts. He has been able to avoid the law and fool authorities for many years because he has much experience manipulating people throughout his life. I have tried in the past to get authorities help and they say the girls are in no immediate danger. I’ve even been told of his drug use and was told just my word against his and this wasn’t really an issue because they are old enough to care for themselves. I have found an anonymous young lady who has agreed to pose as a homeless person to gain entrance to their home where the girls report many people come and go at all hours of the day and night. Their clothes, shoes, and other belongings are being stolen. They live in fear and discomfort all the time due to the traffic. They report no physical abuse. However one twin reports seeing something I’ve promised not to disclose at this time but is despicable. She told her dad and he thru the person out. When I asked if this person returned she said her dad gets angry and tells people to leave and then later allows then back. I will purchase video cameras with wifi access in eye glasses, phone chargers, and a cap she will use to capture the activities inside their residence. I can access the videos and pictures on my phone and these will be recorded for evidence. I will take the young lady to their home 5 hours away in Bell County and once she has gained approval by their father to access their home she will stay 3 days and 4 nights. I will arrive to pick up my daughters for Thankgiving Break. She will leave their house that morning claiming to go to family for the holidays. Once my girls get out of school that day I’ll pick them up and collect the young lady to return back to Ector County. When I arrive in Ector County and my girls are safely in my possesion then I will go to the authorities with the evidence. My daughters have asked their father for years to live with me. I have a stable life and home where they feel safe and loved. Their father refuses to allow them. I get visitation every holiday break and all summer. He receives child support and is payee for their checks from my disability which he uses to pay his mortgage and utilities. He doesn’t hold a job other than recycling construction wood in their home which even the yard is full of hazards. I’ve tried to report his yard as a concerned citizen. He always gets rid of authorities somehow. This project is going to ensure I have solid evidence that cannot be denied. I know he will allow this young lady to stay in their home and by law she can give her one party permission to be recorded. I will provide funders with video coverage and keep updated on our progress. Please consider this funding opportunity and refer me to anyone whom will help with funding as soon as possible.

    Thank you,

    Chantel
