One year ago Sean and I were preparing to leave for Boston for the birth of our littlest princess, Julia. We packed what we could into two big suitcases and showered Kaitlyn and Claire with hugs and kisses before leaving them behind. This was one of the hardest things we’ve ever had to do. We were very lucky in that Kaitlyn and Claire were able to visit three different times while we were in Boston, but not having our family together was tough on all of us.
We are preparing to head back to Boston in April for another surgery for Julia. While this time will only be one month verses the two and a half months we were gone last year, we cannot bear to have our little family separated again.
At the beginning of the year Sean and I decided to pull Kaitlyn and Claire from their school and begin homeschooling them so that they could join us in Boston this time. Knowing we will all be together – and Julia will have her two big sisters with her (she absolutely adores them) – makes leaving home and our support system so much easier.
With quite a few things different this time around we have decided to set up a GoFundMe page. Over the last year we have had many family and friends ask how they could help us. If you are able, we are asking for help financially for our next visit. I cannot thank you all enough for following our little story, and for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers! xoxo, Tori
