Banished Baby Longs To Go Home

$1,741 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 4 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.

Hello,
As I am approaching my dream to come home to the Country of Origin in which I was taken from I ask for any small contribution to help fund my trip. I want to share the human I have become in spite of struggles and emotional ups and downs. I have a lot to share as a caring and honest human being. I along with all Banished Babies and Mother's who endured so much emotional turmoil deserve another chapter a happy one where they come from. I hope to start a new chapter and to encourage anyone to do the same. I will keep all posted in my new adventure and hopefully heal the void and emptiness in my heart and with that being sad with or without any support for siblings who can't seem to understand my need to share my story. Thank you xxx
