On January 26, 2001, I have birth to my first child. We were told afterward that there was very little chance that we would ever conceive another child. We lost several before finally holding a pregnancy to the end. Much to our surprise, someone else had bigger plans for us. 13 years later we have FOUR children. They are all our own private Miracles. I need YOUR help to make another Miracle happen. Our family has NEVER been on a "family trip". We live in Montana. It is certainly God's Country. We have beautiful mountain views and a sparkling clear lake. What we DO NOT HAVE is meuseums, zoo's, aquariums, etc. I want to be able to provide educational activities for my kids since they absolutely LOVE to learn and are always asking questions about history. I want to take them to Philadelphia. I want them to see the Franklin Institute, The Museum of Art, The Insititue of Natural Sciences. I want to take them over the boarder and see Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty. We have saved and saved but with 4 children we always seem to find ourselves back at the bottom of the bucket...medical bills, dental bills, car repairs. Please, please, look deep into your hearts and put yourself in our shoes. My husband and I want to provide the best for our children and that includes their education. Even if you can only give $1, it will mean the world to us. We aren't looking for money for Disney Land or anything like that but 6 airlines tickets, a rental car that seats 6, a place to stay that actually sleeps 6 (which will probably end up being 2 rooms unless we can find a rental home). When my kids say, "Mom, Can we go to the Statue of Liberty" I want to say "yes" instead of "No, honey, we can't afford it". I want it to be a trip of yes's.
