In June 2016, a baby boy was born - Noah and he is my son. Myself, my Husband and Noah are living in Spain but are originally from the UK. Since having Noah and living over 2000 miles away from our family. We are so so desperate to be back living close to our families in the UK. To do this, we need money. Why are we in Spain? Well that is down to money also, we moved here as it worked out around £900 a month cheaper in living costs to be here compared to England and we were struggling in England to pay the rent and keep afloat. We have since had Noah, whilst both being self employed we can now stay on top of everything financially but have no spare cash, so saving is out of the question.
We had Noah's Grandma visit us this month and when she left, I did nothing but cry. Yes, because I was going to miss her but also becuase I had no idea how much help family can be when you have a baby. It never crossed my mind how much Noah would be missing out on by not being surrounded by his family, cousins and friends.It never crossed my mind how much everyone else would miss him. I saw how much he loved having his Grandma here, how much time she had to just sit and chat and cuddle him all day.
Family is the most important part of life, we are poor but we are not unhappy because we have a wonderful son who brings joy to our lives everyday but he needs his family as well. We need to do what is best for our son and the only way we can do that is with your help. So please, donate even £1 and we are closer to getting home than we were yesterday.
