Fowler, who went to her local newspaper with the story, received a tremendous response from her local community. She comes from Dayton, Wyoming, a small town of 678 people.
“Everyone here in my town has been very supportive and since it is a small community they know who I am and what matters to me. They know how hard I work and how devoted I am to my kids. So they have stood behind me 100 percent,” she said.
For now Fowler will continue to bake to support her trip to Ireland and is confident when she arrives in Ireland on August 28 she will be welcomed with open arms.
