I have been a "single-parent" for a 8 1/2 years. I say "single-parent" in that I am divorced and raise my son jointly with his mother, but we do not live together or parent together. We are on the same page about how to shape his character and foster his joy for life.
I thought I would join in on this discussion because it was my hope to take him on an boating
adventure this summer and was looking for another family
to sail with. Some people tell me it is a crazy idea, but I am not so sure. I know that, despite how much I love my son, I am not as fun as another child. We always bring friend's children
along with us when we can because it makes for a more balanced relationship. This summer, the dream is to find a family
cruising the Caribbean
who might like to share the ride in exchange for service
, maintance, or money
, or all of the above.
I think this can happen, but people must be persuaded to look into who we are and what we have to offer. It would be an honour to share Luca with the right people because he is just awesome. No joke!
In the effort to help familiaarise ourselves with others, we developed a website that describes ourselves, our goals, and our expectations.

The woman in the photos is my girfriend, she is part of the package too, and a 3rd grade teacher to boot.
We'de love to make this happen.
Feedback is appreciated!!!
