Save my Girls

Raised by 1,235 people in 36 months
The judicial system has given my 2 daughters to their abusive mother and drug addict boyfriend. CPS was involved and they do not see anything wrong with my girls living in a garage where her mother cannot even provide for them. I barely get any visitation and they are making me to be the bad person because I am a big black man, because statistics say black men can't take care of children. I love my girls more than life itself and I just want to be able to get an attorney and fight this system right so that my girls can come home. They have cried to the judge and mediators but they still point the finger at me saying I brainwashed them. But I haven't had them in my care for almost 3 years. Please help me and help my girls.

Hi everyone. It has been quite some time. And yet AGAIN the court dates have been rescheduled. I thank everyone for their support and comments. My girls are getting bigger by the day and still nothing has changed. They still want to come home to me. And i just try my hardest to kerp the fight going. We did the evaluations and now it is just a waiting game. I still get my girls on the weekends and most of their vacations but it is still hard to not have them home everyday. I cannot say as to what goes on at their mother's house as to the fact that they stay quite about that. But i pray daily and do what i can for them. I will continue to have this page up for updates as much as possible.

Again i am thankful for everyone's donations. It has helped in everyway with this court system to even stay afloat. And i am thankful for all the comments of support and concern. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hello everyone. Just posting an update. The court hearings keep getting postponed AGAIN. but right now i am enjoying my daughters being home with me for the next 2 weeks. They are on fall break and i just keep soaking up even the simplest moments because at least for the next 2 weeks i will have a "normal" family life with my kids by my side when i wake up and when i go to sleep.

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the donations and heartfelt comments and messages. They meam the world to me and my girls and our journey that we are going through to be a family again.

Hi everyone sorry it has been such a long time since an update. I have been really busy with my girls since they are on summer break. And not much has happened with my court hearing for them. My ex wife is still postponing the psych evals and it hasnt happened. And now the court dates keep getting pushed out and nothing has happened. My lawyer keeps pushing forward and her lawyer keeps fighting back to where we dont have a hearing for months.

But i wanted to thank everyone for their support. I am truly touched. If it wasnt for the donations i couldnt even afford to keep this lawyer. My wife has even taken on a full time job so we can stay above water while we both go through custody battles. So even from her she is thankful for all your support for the fight for my girls. We are so humbled by the generosity anf prayers worldwide.

I cant say it enough. THANK YOU. And i hope all this mess is over soon. I just want my girls happy.

Hi everyone i know i havent been able to update and im sorry. I have been busy with my kids and dealing with a lot. Im hoping this next court date will set everything into place for my girls.

My ex wife and i live in 2 dofferent counties. We finished the child support and what i need to pay. But my ex wife keeps filing in her county saying i need to pay more cause i dont give her a dime. I am on permanent disability. My kids get their portion sent directly to their mother. And still i provide what my kids ask for because they are my kids. But for my ex to keep going back to child support services and still try and get more and more and its not spent on my kids it gives me a headache. She lies about my income, she doesn't follow court orders. And still gets to do what ever she wants. I will pay for whatever my kids need. I will pay child support but it is for MY KIDS not her and her boyfriend. The only reason i keep fighting is for my kids. They cry to stay with me because something is not right at their mothers house. My ex has been dodging the psychiatrist we are suppose to see. She did one session and was not prepared and it ended early. I fight for my kids happiness she fights for monetary reasons. Trust and believe if my kids are happy there i woudlnt fight it. But the fear and sadness they have is what keeps me going to do what ever possible to get them home. To have my kids happy and to be kids is all i want for them.

I just want to thank you all for your support and positove messages. It is because of all of your prayers and donations that i can be able to fight strong for my kids. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And i am sorry i havent been able to thank all of you individually. I am going to though because i truly do appreciate it.

Watching this video brought me to tears... if you are still looking for some cash. On my next paycheck I will definitely throw some your way... this is just sickening.... it is so obvious that they want nothing to do with her... your youngest I assume the one who went first... the look in her eyes.... she looked defeated... that was horrifying no child should ever feel as such.. I am an atheist but in this particular case. I am praying for you and your beautiful angels who have been going through god only know how much suffering.

I found your story shared by Rickey smiley. Radio personality. I encourage you to reach out to him. This video is being shared across social media everywhere. I could see the fear in your daughters eyes when she looked in her mothers direction. I'm hoping you get the blessing God has planned and bring your girls home. Your story touched my heat. God Bless.

Claude be careful about taxes on your gofundme. I think once you reach 20k, you'll receive a 1099 form. I would hate for you to get taxed on these donations.

A court should not be claiming that you brainwashed the children. I don't want to sound sexist, because that is not at all what I mean when I say this, but it is a very clear example of courts favoring a woman, no matter what the case may be. "A mother should be able to have her kids!". This doesn't happen too often from what I can tell, but it appears to be the case here and I am not interested in seeing it happen to a decent man who just wants to let their kids live in a home without the fear of being physically or mentally harmed...

Will try to help and share. How much do you need to fully fund your fight for custody? You are a great father!!! I pray you get them back. Maybe some updates will help spread your story; such as background, what's happening now, and what happened after video. Or a video diary? Just a thought.

This is sad and exactly what happened to my brother and his children. I love what I do. We help protect families with top law firms for low monthly rates so when things like this happens they are already protrctedcsnd have a real shot at justice. If someone can connect me with this gentleman I know I can be of service and save this family huge amounts of stress and money for legal fees!! My Jah hear his prayers and keep his family protected.

Claude and his current wife Zayda have both been convicted of WILLFUL CHILD CRUELTY. He is actively on probation. Public records on Riverside County courts SWF1302243. Sir with all due respect, you used a short video to tug at the hearts of strangers who truly care. You have more than enough time and money to get your girls back. However, that seems not to be the case because the court knows the truth in regards to all parties. You have visitation. You didn't lose custody. Your video went viral with a fraction of the story attached and now you are captilizing off it. Again, my heart goes out to your girls and may God place them exactly where they need to be.
