20 years ago my wife and her sister were separated by the foster care system. Their mother passed away and was the only person that linked them together...That was a long time ago..Today both ladies are married and have children, yet neither of them has had the money to make the trip to reunite. My wife has never got to hold her niece, or her nephews, as well as my sister-in-law has never got to meet our son. Regardless, every time we think we are going to get the chance to save money to take the trip and meet them, something always comes up...That's life right....My wife does not have any other living relatives that are blood kin like her sister is. The foster care system took her form Missouri and moved her to Mississippi. Niza, her sister, moved back to California with her father. I am asking, not just pleading with yall, please help us raise the money to bring them together again. Phone calls, pictures, and facebook is just not enough. A family needs to be able to hug one another every once in a while..and i think 20 years is long enough without a hug. Please help to bring them together, we have saved $500 so far that has not had to be touched, but we have to fly from Alabama to California, as well as rent a car, rent a motel room, and eat...We had thought about driving out, but then when you count the days I'll have off, and the amount of gas it would take, 2 days is just not long enough. If we flew there, then we would have the entire 6 days to spend with them. It's going to cost $3500 for the flight for me, my wife, and our son..it will also cover the motel stay, car rental there and our food....We would be forever grateful..,We would like to try and keep this trip planned for July. So that everyone has a chance to see each other, and allow us to keep saving money. All money donated will be placed into the savings account and untouched until needed. If we had people who understood where we were coming from and were donating, it would not be so hard to keep the money saved so that the money covering our bills would be just that bill money. I know everyone feels how hard it is to try and save money when your barely making enough to skim by. If we had this chance and raised the funds. I can make my wifes wish come true of getting to hug her sister. Thank you!!
