Last night was a GREAT night!! I can not THANK you all enough for coming out to Support Mary's Rights. My family and I feel so blessed to have so much love and support surrounding us. I could not have asked for a better night and thanks to all of you we have raised funds to keep our fight going!!
This fundraiser has enabled us to proceed with our appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and to continue to fight for a new precedent in this area and to overturn the current law set forth in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts decided over 100 years ago We teach our children about morals and the importance of treating people fairly. These lessons seem so simple but when I got into this situation with my battle against the government for my daughter, I realized that these lessons are important to stand by even when it is so difficult. When things got tough I just kept asking myself, what kind of mother would I be if I didn’t fight back and stand up for my child’s rights? Our generations in the past have fought and died for our rights. Why is our government manipulating laws to suit their needs? I have a lot of unanswered questions and feel like I'm in scary dream and cant wake up from it! How is this happening but the fact is its happening to hundreds of people,hopefully my fight will make an impact for all of the other families who are going through similar struggles as mine.
This is just the beginning for our cause. God bless you all for your continued support,have a Blessed weekend!!
