Maylia Linn van Dijken turned 1 month old on August 6! We sure enjoyed having Grammie here. Thanks again to everyone who made this possible and See More

THE STORY:

Not everyone wants their mother in the room when they're giving birth but for those who do it's nice when that can happen. My husband and I are very excited that we're expecting our first baby in the middle end of June. I am one of those people who want my mom present. I want her experience and knowledge and presence. She's been at almost all the 19 grand children's births. However in our case it isn't so simple because we live half a world away in Holland. Our goal is to raise enough money for 2 round trip tickets for mom and a travel companion for her. Mom has travel anxiety so we're hoping someone like a family member or friend can come with her and help her to navigate the flight changes and airports. I know this is a long shot but thought I'd put it out there. Some people like to donate to different organizations so maybe you'll be even more compelled to donate to a worthy cause of someone that you actually know. Whatever your motivation for donating or your reason for not donating we thank you for thinking of us! :)

If Crowd Rise doesn't work for you because of what ever country you live in I have a PayPal account that also works. The email address for that is laurajelinek20@yahoo.com
