What I am about to write now, share with you all, is something I delayed for some time. It makes me feel vulnerable and I am always a person who wants to solve problems herself instead of asking others. But now that Little Belle’s Magical Sanctuary is involved, I have to step aside my pride and find the courage to ask for your help. Little Belle her sanctuary, my family, is everything to me, and with all my heart I want her legacy to go on.
The place where we live now is not our own place and because of certain circumstances that changed we really need to have our own place where we can continue our Sanctuary and to fulfill our dream to give many more animals in need a forever home.
Another part of that dream is also to give people the opportunity to experience a whole other way of living with animals. To feel and learn more about life through the animals with a true understanding for who they are, to learn more about themselves, to explore the world together, to grow, to feel the magic.
Of course, this was always Robert’s and my plan, to move to another country with a better climate, more space, and more living in nature, to follow our dream. That’s why I went to Portugal, to explore the possibilities for us and the animals.
During my research in Portugal I learned a lot and I also discovered that Robert and I don’t have enough finances to buy an appropriate property for our dogs and horses, for our dream to do more for the old and ‘handicapped’ animals, and to create something beautiful for people to experience as well.
We had the plan to emigrate already for years but because of my health (Lyme disease and neck trauma with two surgeries) we weren’t able to. Due to my health we also have spent a lot of money to help me heal. Nowadays I feel much better, occasionally I can still have a pain attack, but not that severe as before anymore.
Do you know who played a big part in this? Our beautiful Little Belle. Who gave/gives me the most inspiring insights in life, and who gave/gives me the strength to follow my heart. She and I will also describe in our book about how we changed each other’s lives.
Only at the moment, I don’t know how to continue our Sanctuary without having our own place. I don’t know how to make it possible to follow our dream.
But I won’t give up, and I will keep fighting, searching and thinking about solutions. Make my and Little Belle’s dream happen.
So, my question is: Do you have any ideas or advice to help us?
