It's so great that you've got people who want to help you in every way! Instead of being in hard situation - you've got luck because of that.

Kandee, I've just translate two of your Youtube videos to share them first with my friends and than I plan to share it with others who know only my language (which is Polish). Isn't that cool? I hope you'll be glad of that :)

What an amazing post to write for you. Such solid support must mean so much right now, stick together.
I just wanted you to know that I imagine your videos have probably inspired thousands of people to turn their lives around or make positive change (you inspired me, big time and I was only looking for a blowdry video)and for thouusands and thousands more, you would have made them smile or laugh. That is an amzing gift to have. I hope you always have that sunshine in your heart!

A few years ago, my husband and I were in the fight of our lives... all set to adopt our foster son when all of the sudden, long-lost "relatives" who had never even seen him before (even though they admitted to knowing he was in foster care for years) came forward and said they wanted him. We had to hire a lawyer (we are still trying to get back on our feet financially) and had to endure a three week-long jury trial. We won, and the adoption is now final. However, the scars are deep, and I still have nightmares. I couldn't figure out why we had to go through that... we are good people who love our son, so why?!!! And then someone said to me "if you haven't had to fight the devil, then you have not fought anything". And then it suddenly made sense: of course we had to fight to win against him!!! ... You are in that fight right now. I will be praying for you. Having a good lawyer is key, but also having a good support system of friends and family. Don't let the system (and whatever bad force is behind this) hurt you to the point that you turn away from your faith, because that is their intention! I don't mean to sound like a kook or biblebeater, but I have been down this road, and it can be brutal.

Kandee: His post was so amazing and so true. If they would just do the proper research they would be able to see the pictures you have up on this and your other blog where your house is in the background. From what I and everyone else can see, it looks like a normal house (if not cleaner than mine) that has children in it. That cop was an idiot! Good Luck to you! You have been an inspiration to all of us single mothers (and in my case...former single mother)!

Paddy said...

Ian is a true friend for you Kandee. You are blessed to have people like that in your life. This whole situation must be very stressful for you and your family. Surely this police officer should NOT have questioned a 12 year old child in that manner until a family member was present. The officer should have waited and he had no right to search your house. Sounds to me like the police officer was on a mission and trying to make more of a situation than necessary just to justify his over-the-top actions! Sorry to go on but I just feel so annoyed for you. <3 and support to you Kandee.

lizze94 said...

What an amazing blog Ian wrote !!! You are a beautiful person inside & out Kandee. Anyone who watches just one of your videos can see that. Yo have inspired, dazzled, an entertained me. And I always know you will make me smile when I'm having a bad day. Thank you so much for all you do. We all love you in Marion Il., and we are praying that this will all end in a positive way for you. Hugs & kisses Lisa N

Christina Clarke said...

Kandee I am new to following your blog and your Youtube Channel and I was just reading about your situation... Wow you are so strong and you seem to staying positive which I now is not easy in situations like this.

I don't know the details other than what I have read but as someone who works in Child Protection Services in Canada there is NO reason for them to be treating you this way. I know things are different in the States but really I think this is outrageous. I see children that are endangered and I mean the true meaning of the word every day (sadly) and what you have described wouldn't even make a mark on our radar let alone CHARGE YOU!

Funny this is the other day before I new about all this I was watching your video and learnt you had kids and thought to myself 'she seems like she'd be an awesome and fun mom'. All I can say is hang in there girl the Lord is on our side and I believe you have an army of prayer behind you supporting you through this.

I'm so happy to hear that your friends are letting the world know who you really are and what is truly your character. They should be the ones who know you best next to your family and loved ones. Hopefully everything will turn out for the best and things can move forward for you and your family. I want to see you happy with that sparkle back in your eyes. In your pics you still look so hurt. Your eyes tell alot about how you are feeling. Stay STRONG!

Alessandra said...

This really touched my heart. You are so blessed to have Ian as a friend. He seems to be just as warmhearted and kind as you are.
I send all my love and support to you..

Nikki said...

Ian sounds like a great friend and hes put everything out there and hes hopefully cleared things up for some people. Sometimes whatever you do some ppl will find wrong in it, point fingers and act as though they never make any kinds of mistakes in their own lives.. Maybe its jealously, maybe because they have nothing better to do? But try not to worry, it will all be over soon, its just a bump in the road. Stay strong and positive xx.

Heather said...

I read this last night, because you posted it on twitter, VERY good!!! Good luck wiht everything dear, god knows you sure don't deserve this.

Tiffanie said...

Hope you got my mini donation. It's all I could afford at the moment. Kandee keep your head up... Things will get better- no one in their right mind will believe this! And now that you have a lawyer he can tell you the same things. I will be waiting for your new video! P.S. I asked the hubby for the Alice in wonderland makeup for my birthday?!? From all the single moms there is someone out there- I found my prince! Yours will come too!

Flavia said...

Kandee, I made an account on PayPal just to donate you some money...you deserve it...=) I hope it helps you!

Paddy said...

Hi Kandee, I just wanted to say please leave the donate button on your blog as I desperately want to help you but don't get paid until next week. I want to try and give something back to you as you have helped me. Although I don't know you personally you have actually changed my life. Through your encouraging blogs, videos and helpful suggestions I have been able to get my confidence back. I even bought a fun dance exercise tape you had suggested a while back and lost 28lbs because I now actually enjoy exercise! You taught me how to apply perfect makeup whereas before I had no idea and was too self-conscious to go into a store and ask one of those perfectly made up ladies on the cosmetics counter! There must be thousands more like me whose lives you have seriously changed for the better without knowing it so you will always have my support and gratitude and I will help you any way I can. Anyone can see what a lovely Mom you are. Those accusations are ridiculous and as for the dirty dishes one - we all know you're a germaphobe you even admitted on your blog 2 years ago and on your cupcake video! <3 to you Kandee and I hope all your troubles are behind you and your family soon. =D

lots of love,

Ikka juhtub, Sille said...

You CAN do it! Everything he said is true! I don't believe that you'd leave your kids alone and want only best for them. If everyone could see you for who you really are, they couldn't even say anthing bad about you. I think you're even more awsome in real life than you are on internet. Hold on, it's a crazy ride, but it's going to be OK.
Sparkles, hugs, positivity, Sille :)

Rissa said...

Kandee, I am sympathetic to your situation, but obviously there is a problem with juggling your kids around. Yes, kids get into trouble, but how often are YOU there to actually stay with them? How much time to they spend with someone else while you're off doing makeup or spending hours putting videos on youtube? Do the fathers of your children share custody?

Yes, the police are being ridiculously unfair in not listening to you or letting defend yourself- which is your right- but this never would have happened if you weren't always gone. How often does your 2 year old spend time with you?

I am a single mother with no help from my exhusband. I would do what I need to do in order to support my daughter, and that means sacrifice. Which in turn means doing what is necessary to be there to RAISE HER MYSELF. I don't chase after fun dreams if it means me not being the mother I need to be to my daughter.

I love you Kandee, and I pray that Jesus protects you and your children (and that's another thing, you say 'God' but why do people treat Jesus like a 4 letter word?).

Anyway, I think that this may mean that you have to find a way to incoorporate your kids more into your schedule, since they do come first.

Sophie said...

Why, oh why, are people so nosy and always behaving as if they knew it all?! Unbelievable. Just red the things the magazine wrote about the case and what comments readers had left. Luckily everybody aren't the same way. Positive thoughts, hugs and all the best to Kandee and her family! You'll get through it!

If you have not retained legal counsel yet...

Try contacting the ACLU.

Also, your state may have a legal aid office, where you can obtain free, or low-cost, attorney services.

It also never hurts to mass email various legal offices. Go through the phone book, and as the unction presents itself, contact those persons.

I am not certain of the laws in your particular state, but I believe your civil rights were significantly violated on a few levels.

I wish you well.

Karen said...

Kandee you're such a positive person and I'm sorry you have to go through this. I was put in a bad situation a couple of years ago and you know what? That's when you know who your true friends are and at the same time, I learned a sad truth that people are so quick to judge and believe the worse in anyone else in hopes to make their pathetic selves feel better. Don't let them get to you. I know you won't because you're a strong person. I'm sure you're a terrific mother :) Hang in there and everything will be fine!

mollysaiddd said...

Kandee, I read your friends blog and I definitely cried. You absolutely do not deserve this whatsoever, at ALL. I CANNOT believe that you are getting hit with this.
You have been so inspirational to me, and made me have a confidence I've never been able to find. I think you are such a beautiful person in every way.
I saw that you posted a paypal account, [your friend mentioned it in his blog] I would like to know where to find that! I would love to help you out! If you could post it in a youtube videos side info, or a twitter update or anything like that, that would be fantastic!

chasitysellsavon said...

Hey Kandee! I just have got to where I can access your blog again! YES!!! I'm so glad, but now sad. I read this blog of yours about all that you are going through and it just completely broke my heart for you! I don't know you, but I know all the negative junk said can't be true. You are such a joy and inspiration to others! You have made my day so many times. There has been days I was sick and I thought, "Shoot, I'm gonna watch some Kandee vids and that'll make me feel better."
I also want to share that Jesus loves you so much that He died for you and do not ever forget HIS love for you. He is faithful when everything else in your world falls apart, HE can give you HIS strength when you have none. GOD IS GOOD! Remember this verse from the Bible:
2Co:12:9: "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Have a great day Kandee! God Bless you!

hey, ive been wanted to do makeup ever since i was really little. ive always been really into art and detail so i think its the perfect career for me. watching your videos has really helped me alot and has reassured me that makeup is what i want to do. im 17 now and next year im moving to miami. so im hoping to get something started because im going to start going to school where i live now for makeup.(ny) it would mean so much to me if i could keep in touch with you about makeup and such because your so amazing at what you do. your help could really help me out with everything. and you seem really nice and grounded.--i hate when ego goes to peoples heads and turn into snobs. so if you would like to keep in touch my email is gorjessXX9@aim.com. thank you sooo much :)

Kaley said...

I was so upset to read about what's been happening to you! I've watched your youtube video where you shared your story and it really uplifted and encouraged me. I think you seem like an amazing person. I'd also like to add that from my limited knowledge of the legal system, I would venture to say the case against you could never hold up in court. I don't think for a minute you'll lose. I'll be praying for you. :-D Keep smiling!

BGlittery said...

Kandee,
Keep your head high, and your spirits higher girlfriend. I read your friend's blog, and I was so touched by his article. I never in a million years beleived that what was going on was to this magnitude. I am a recent subscriber to your YouTube channel, so I am just starting to follow you, and now, your personal life. I want you to know that all over the world you have so many supporters. That officer obviously has another thing coming to him, he probably just realized how wrong he really was, and had his head up his ass..
I wish you all the best Kandee... truly.
All my love and support,
Britt (BGlittery)

Miss Katie said...

I just read this. Unbelievable! Even though I don't know you nd I live in Canada, I agree with Ian - it's wrong what they did.


You're so brave! I bet your son felt really bad because I'm sure he didn't mean for this to happen
:[

Big hugs to your family! I know how it feels
