My Dad just died. Can you help Mommy attend the funeral?

   My name is Veranda Valentin. I want to share with you a story hoping someone could help my family and I bring my mother, Maria Laura Ciriaco Lazaro back from Mexico, so she can be present at my father’s funeral service. My father, Jeffery Hamby passed away on April 26th, 2019. He was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. His last wish was for my mother to return from Mexico. My mother and father got married in 2007, and ever since, my father’s top priority was to make sure that my mother, my brother and sister could get the proper documentation so they could be in this country legally. Back in 2017 my mother finally received an interview in Mexico for her green card.  With high hopes and overwhelmed with joy knowing that their hard work had paid off both of my parents departed to Mexico. Unfortunately, only my fathered returned because mother’s visa was denied based on grounds of inadmissibility. We filed a different form back in June 2018, but unfortunately nothing has been resolved. The U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services was able to expedite her case and give her another interview but that is going to take some time and we need it to be resolved now.

   My father’s funeral is next Saturday, May 4th, 2019 and it would be a miracle if she could be present.  If there is anyone that is willing to sign my petition for her return or make a small donation, I would really appreciate it. My family is devastated.  Our daddy just died, and our Mom is stuck in Mexico because of black and white legislation that does not take into account our extreme situation.  With your help, my mother could make it to his funeral service and we could be re-united.

Thank you for your help and time.  We have a gofundme page posted Here
