My Travel Story

by: Jessica Lowe Start Date: Jul 15, 2017 - End Date: Nov 11, 2017
I am hoping to give my fiancée the experience of a lifetime. We met one year ago and we both just knew that we would end up together. She had exclusively dated men prior to dating me and had 2 children from prior relationships that turned into disappointment and left her as a single mom. I knew that I just couldn't let her down. Immediately she dove into the LGBT community and discovered Olivia travel and resort agency for women. She surprised me January 2016 with the announcement that she'd booked us a spot on their upcoming Breathtaking Punta Cana trip in October 2017. We worked our butts off! She runs her own official in home daycare, I saved and made monthly payments from my paychecks faithfully and we worked with such tenacity meet the deadline payment goal and we are more than halfway there! We successfully paid 3000.00 of our hard earned money that we saved up each check but now we have hit a brick wall. She even got a part-time serving job to try and pay the rest for airfare and a sitter for our 2 year old, but unfortunately it's just not going to be near enough to meet our goal. I'm honestly just at a loss and feel so helpless because after all she's been through, all of her hard work as a single mom, and striving to make as much as possible with both of her incomes, she deserves her chance of a lifetime. We made so many sacrifices, late nights, and still raising our kids in the meantime. Neither of us have ever been out of the country nor have we even seen the ocean anywhere other than tv. Please help me give my fiancée this chance so she can see more of the world than our little corner in Iowa. I can't give her the wedding shes entitled to and couldn't even afford the engagement ring she deserved but she never complains, she's always so appreciative and hardworking. This is my last resort. Can anyone, whether in the LGBT community or not help me erase all her bad memories and give her an experience she'll never forget?
