U.S. Consulate in Lagos: Free 2 year old orphaned girl to be with her American adoptive parents

    1. Petition by

      K B

      Powder Springs, GA

For six months a beautiful and vibrant 2 year old girl has been confined to an orphanage in Eastern Nigeria where conditions are deplorable. Her health and safety are in peril due to the risk of contracting the deadly diseases Malaria and Dengue Fever. She was legally adopted by a married American couple in June of 2012. The adoption was cleared by the Department of Homeland Security as well as Nigerian courts and Social Welfare offices. Her adoptive parents have completed all required steps over a two year period and spent thousands of dollars traveling back and forth from Nigeria. They are now Silver Medallion Status with Delta Airlines. The U.S. Consultate in Lagos has been obstinately standing in the way for almost six months, preventing the innocent orphaned girl from coming home to her adopted parents in the state Georgia. The little girl can't even go outside to play. Her parents are heart-broken by the unexplainable delay that, according to the U.S. Consulate website, can last up to a year or more. This innocent child needs to be freed immediately.

U.S. Consulate in Lagos, Nigeria, Jeffrey J. Hawkins

U.S. House of Representatives
Free 2 year old orphaned girl to be with her American adoptive parents. She is suffering and endangered each day you refuse to issue her visa.
Case number LGS-2012721038.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      When people do the right thing the correct way, they must not be delayed or ignored. If this is proven not so, it gives honor to the criminal minded.
