We appreciate anything anyone is willing to donate and will most definitely make sure to pay it forward in the future as we get more settled into life.
Choosing to do an online fundraiser was our absolute last resort. We are very private people and don’t like how cruel the world can be when sharing your darkest moments. So, please, if you’re not here to offer help, move on.
