Banished Baby Longs To Go Home

$1,606 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 2 months
They say, "Follow your dreams!"

 The major motion picture"Philomena" it is based on a true story of the Irish babies taken from their Mothers and sold in the US. I am one of those babies taken from my mom at the age of three and sent on an airplane by myself to Chicago.

Now, at age 52, I want to go home.

I may finally have a chance to live and work in Ireland as well as get to know my birth family. I have organizations that will help me once I arrive, but I need help with the financing to even make it there!  On the list: I need to renew my Irish passport,  my green card, buy a plane ticket, and raise spare funds for living expenses.

My goal is to go home by my 53rd Birthday August 4th 2018. Please help me fulfill my dream.

To read more of my story  please visit the Chicago Tribune.

Found this picture of my birth mum getting suitcase ready for my return home after 50 years. For all adopters and mother's there is hope for happy endings even if they are photographs to show us who we came from. I am half way to my goal to come full circle home. Thank you all in advance for support.xx
