Nia who lives with epilepsy to stay with her family

This petition had 8,166 supporters

My children are Commonwealth children, born in Canada, but have grown up in the UK for the last 7 years. I am their mum and a British citizen. The Home Office has already had more than £10,000 from me to keep my children here with me in the UK. We have had to borrow, and rely on charity from friends for some of this. We work hard but also need to pay rent and bills. How the Home Office can expect a normal family to have this extra money is mind boggling! All of our family live here in the UK (Wales) and my children are little Welsh girls and so proud to be so. My youngest daughter, Nia, has uncontrolled epilepsy and stress and change are the worst triggers for seizures that she has. She needs constant care and is the light of our lives. I have no choice but to find a further £4,300 to pay the Home Office in January for my children to carry on living in their home, their security and happiness. We live worrying that they could be deported from the only home they have ever known. The Home Office has put us in debt because we live to pay their fees. My family have always lived in Wales. My grand dad and his brothers went to WW1 for this country. My children should not be threatened with this. Please tell Amber Rudd and the Home Office that I have paid them enough for the peace we need as a family and we should be allowed to be together. Thank you...
