UPDATE: As of December 15th I have ended my fast. I lost 16 pounds over the 14 days that I fasted completely. I spent several more days slowly re-introducing, first juices and then solid food back into my system. I still intend to write a couple more essays, but I have now completed my story, including my explanation of why I chose to end the fast early.
GIFTS: So far we have received over $2000 in gifts. Thank you!

David, It would be helpful for people if you explained how the system of family court has mistreated you and other fathers; how does it err? I have a high level of trust in you, but you’re asking for support without giving us information to understand your untenuous situation.
Yes, Reva,you’re right. I will add some details before I actually begin the fast. But I intend to use the 21 days of the fast to tell my story. Because Advent begins so quickly after Thanksgiving I wanted to send out this “heads up” message before the holiday.
