I am a native from Ontario and I have just got in touch with my mother for the first time in 25 years. She wants me to come there for Christmas and I don't have the money for a bus ticket I am so hurt because this is a miracle and I desparately want to see her. I have a wife as well who wants to come as my mom has never met her before. We are from a tiny reserve in northern Ontario and the bus ticket costs $300 each my band might pay for part of it but I'm not sure. We are currently homeless so I would be very happy to have a Christmas in a home with my mom so I can get to know her again. She also said I could stay as long as I want so I probabally would move there since I have nothing here. This would be a dream come true. I'm praying for a miracle. God Bless
