Fund Raising Goal amount is of $1500CAD. This will cover the cost of my plane ticket, insurance (if anything happens to me, I do not wish my husband to remain alone, struggling with 4 kids) + spending money while in Poland.

I am planning a trip to Poland to meet my long lost sister. My father was married, prior to leaving Poland for Canada and had daughter. That relationship fell apart. When he arrived to Canada, back in 1965, he established a new life for himself when he met and married my mother. 3 more children followed, I was one of them. I always knew I had a sister in Poland, but could not locate her, as little to no information was available to me. My father passed away in June of 1990. For over 23 years, I have always wondered what ever became of my sister and if she knew our father had died? As per my father's request, he was cremated and his remains were flown to Poland for burial. It was the last time I saw him.

Last year, before my 40th birthday, I took it upon myself to seek out my sister. I also wanted to find out where my father was buried. Took quite a few weeks, but my search paid off!! I found not only my father's burial plot, but also my long lost sister! If all goes well, I will be leaving Montreal for Poland in May 2014. What a reunion this will be! I am overjoyed!

Only one hiccup to my story, I recently found out my husband was being laid off, duration unknown. Too many life events have kept my sister and I apart ... this is why I am taking a chance and created this campaign. My husband claims nothing will affect my reunion, but the reality of things will most certainly not make it easy.

I believe in the power of numbers! If everyone took a moment to donate, even just a little, things would add up and quickly! I do believe in miracles! Wild horses could not keep me from reuniting with my sister!

Thank you for reading.

Sincerely,
Nina xox
