Help a Mother Keep her Promise

I am a stay-at home mom of 2 beautiful girls. My husband and I tried to get pregnant for 10 years before we were blessed with my oldest daughter, who just turned 9. Just 2 years later, my youngest was also brought into our lives and she turns 7 next week. Because of our infertility struggles, we have always looked at our babies as a special gift from God. About 5 weeks ago tragedy struck our household when my husband chose to leave our family. My girls and I are still struggling mightily and we are trying to take this day by day and know that God is certainly carrying us. My husband and I made many promises to our girls over the years, including that they would never have to go through their parents getting a divorce. Unfortunately, many of those promises have been broken. The most recent is a promise to take them to Disneyland in October. We have not been on vacation for 4 years and have been planning this trip for months. My girls were saving their own money to go to the Bibbidi, Bobbidi, Boutique for a princess makeover. They were, of course, devastated at the news that the vacation was cancelled. Now that some of the fog is clearing from my mind, I desperately want to try and keep this promise that we made to them, and take them to Disneyland. Will you please consider making a donation to our family or sharing this with others who may donate to help me keep this promise to my girls? Please give them some time to be kids and escape the harsh reality of their lives right now. It would sure bring some happiness to my girls in what has been a very dark time in our family. Thank you
