New Zealand To Help My Daughter


My name is Leona Paddock. My daughter and her family are missionaries in New Zealand. They were overjoyed to find out they are expecting their third child; Clara will be born around May 1st. There have been complications with the pregnancy and the ultra sound also showed  Clara has a cleft lip (maybe pallet too). Clara will have to be in the hospital for 1-2 weeks. During this period my daughter and husband will have to be at the hospital learning how to feed and care for Clara. They will need help with the care of Lliam and Theilan at home while they are gone. I am going to New Zealand to be a support to them during this stressful time. Please help me make this journey possible.  I don't get any paid vacation with my job, so this will go to cover my bills and plane ticket. Thank you so much for helping me take this journey for my family.
