My mom and I have not seen each other in what will be 3 years by the end of this month. The photos above are of my brother and I, when I last said goodbye to her on August 29, 2011 (the middle photo is her and I in 2003). As I am now 18 years old, my mom has missed out on a very important time period of my life, and various meaningful events. I have done all I can to keep her updated on what’s going on everyday and how much my face has changed, but I am not content with that.
I am sure you all can imagine, it gets harder and harder everyday that goes by where I don’t get to hug the very woman who gave me life, who was my greatest friend while growing up.
So what exactly am I raising money for?
My mom lives in California (waaaay up there, near the Redwood National Park (I mean, way waaay up there in Cali)), and I live in Illinois. Funds are shortcoming, hence the need for donations, and I cannot say this enough: I love and miss her more than anything. I would absolutely love to be able to spend next summer in California, with my mom. I simply want to make up for lost time and finally create new and exciting memories together.
Saving up to see my mom after such a long time apart is currently my number 1 priority. I am working very hard to save all that I can while also trying to provide for myself and my family, down to the last dollar from paycheck to paycheck. Donating to me means more to me than you may possibly think, even if it’s just 1 dollar. That’s just 1 more dollar closer to my goal, thanks to all of you and your sweet contributions. I could send you artwork or a personalized note, too, if you’d like. Anything to give back my thanks to you and the kindness of your heart!
God Bless, and Thank You in Advance! xx
