My son Evander Lee Daniels was only 22 months when he died after being placed in an overcrowded foster home. He was left unattended in a bathtub, with about five centimetres of water and the taps turned off. He was found by his foster father with his face down in the tub, the taps running scalding hot water and He passed away from drowning.

The foster home where Evander was staying was only approved for three children, but social services had placed five children under the age of four in it.

Seeing his little body in a funeral home is burned in my memory forever. My child was placed in foster care while I was serving with the military in the United States and while his mother was suffering from postpartum depression.

My son’s short life needs to honored and remembered so does others who all passed away in foster care We raise awareness and by having a designated permanent memorial for Evander and foster children is life wasn’t taken in Vain we can honor him and others by creating a memorial in Saskatoon.

I want Evander’s story to serve as an example to ensure our government invests more resources in prevention, in keeping families apt to care for their children and informed on their children’s wellbeing. A permanent memorial in Saskatoon would help me and my family heal we lost Evander’s Mother September 29th 2018. We talked and agreed that a memorial for her son Evander and foster children would be a good way to remember him and others.

I am asking for you to help me towards this goal of a memorial for My son Evander and those who past on in foster care. We need the City of Saskatoon,  along with the Government of Saskatchewan, to help make this happen for Evander and those who passed on from foster care. 

Help me give meaning to Evander's life. Join me in asking for a memorial for Evander and foster kids to be made in Saskatoon, ask mayor and city councillors and for the Government of Saskatchewan also.
