We are starting this fundraiser out of sheer desperation. Back in January 2012 John and I decided it was time for us to set a date to get married. He'd proposed on the previous Valentine's day and we had a date set for the fall of 2012. My dress was on lay away. My bridesmaids had all purchased their dresses and we had set up a DJ, Officiant, Venue Rented, ect. February 2012 after the twins and I had a nice dinner with my parents and their friends tragedy struck. My mother has 2 near fatal heart attacks. It was devastating for our family. After that she was in and out of the hospital with cardiac related issues. Within that year she had numerous heart caths and stents put in. John and I decided that the stress of trying to plan a wedding was too much and all of our focus should be put toward helping my mother recover. So we canceled the wedding. My mother had open heart surgery last year to finally help fix her heart issues and is slowly getting healthy and it's time for me tl finally marry my best friend so that John is able to adopt Damien and we can be a family and feel whole. We don't want gifts or even a honeymoon. We just need help paying for my dress, Officiant, rings and other miscellaneous things. Whatever money left over from donations will be used for charitable donations. We have spent the past few Christmases helping those in need and that is what we will do with the left over cash. Please help make our dream come true. Help us get married. Thank you all in advance and God Bless.
