TULSA -- The three children of Taheerah Ahmad are trying to get back on their feet.
Last week, Ahmad confessed to brutally stabbing her 11-year-old daughter, abusing her other two daughters, and trying to set her house on fire on Mohawk Boulevard.
The 11-year-old, who was stabbed 50 to 70 times and hit in the head with a pick ax, is still in the hospital in critical condition. No further surgeries are planned.
The other two daughters, the eight- and nine-year-old, are in DHS custody.
It’s a sad situation for children like this who are plucked from their home, sometimes with only the clothes on their back. That’s why the Children’s Advocacy Center on Sheridan is hosting a donation drive.

They’re looking for clothes, undergarments, shoes and pajamas for the eight and nine-year-old.
This drive comes as the result of many residents reaching out to police, the child abuse network and local media, asking what can be done to help out the girls.
There’s also a way to donate money for things that go beyond material necessities.
“You take care of all those basic things, but sometimes for a kid, it’s that other stuff is what really can make a difference in them, at the end of the day, feeling like they’re starting to get their life back to somewhat normal status,” said Anna America, CEO of the Child Abuse Network.
You can donate funds through TAPCHelps.org or drop off the supplies to the Children’s Advocacy Center on Sheridan.
If there is a surplus of items donated for the three girls, those items will go to other children in need.
