Hello everyone, I am originally from New York. In 2010 I flew 36 hours for the first time ever to Australia to be with my boyfriend, we married in March and I have been living here for the past three years. With my husband the only one working and me pregnant, the immigration fees for my permanent residency visa and rent, utilities, hospital bills, etc left us so broke I couldn't even fly back to NY for my father's funeral in Feb 2012. At the time I didn't know about this site or I surely would have asked for help then as well. Our son was born in 2011 and still we've never been able to fly to NY to see my family or introduce them to our little boy. Children under two fly free so all the while we've been planning to take him to NY before his 2nd birthday. Well his birthday is approaching in August and we don't have the money. My husband has been out of work for the past six months. This is why I'm here asking that you guys out there please help pay for our traveling expenses. I want so much for my family to see him while he's still so little and cuddly and the trip is way too expensive for any of them to come here.
Thank you thank you thank you thank you to anyone who so much as donates $1! You have no idea how much it is appreciated!
