My Travel Story

Lois and Jac have been through a very traumatic 18 months which included being put into foster care and away from their mum unnecessarily for 4 months. After a long battle they were returned home with extreme emotional difficulties. No apology was given be the local authority for the damage that was caused to the children. Lois, 10 years old, now suffers from PTSD and conduct disorder which she receives weekly therapy for, therapy that took 9 months of battling the local authority for her to receive. Jac, 4 years old, also has mild PTSD and his behaviour has been extremely challenging. Both children now seem to have overcome the worst of their ordeal because of the strength and determination of their mum, she has fought long and hard to get the best help for her children and to try to bring normality back into their lives. The family have been through so much and are well deserving of a family break away from all the struggles they're going through. This would be a trip of a lifetime for the children and also I believe would help with their recovery.
