Samantha is a mum to 4 children aged 19, 14, 12 & 9 and has been married for 21 years.

Navigating COVID and lockdowns put pressure on their journey but resulted in not only a wonderful child but an incredible relationship between their two families. The team are looking to attempt a sibling journey at the end of 2021.
