Petition update

My last chance. I have cried all day...

Bernadette Romulo

Jun 14, 2018 — I want to thank all of you who has been there since the beginning of this petition. No exact words to let you know how grateful I am for all your support for my family.

The Department of Home Affairs has given us a final extension bridging visa... which is until July 11. This means we have to depart Australia on or before that date. They are also requiring us to show plane departure tickets before July 5.

As a mother who has been struggling to keep this family together, after hearing the most devastating news of my life, I just cried and cried for almost 2 hours, my whole body was shaking and I wanted to explode. I was thinking... my baby Giro will be gone forever. I was picturing in my mind all our good memories.. fun and laughters.. his kisses and cuddles.. his sweet caring thoughts. :’). My son...

My children will be torn from each other... it’s so painful. And Giro was so sad and he was about to cry. It was breaking my heart.

We still have a month to fight this cruel decision. What have we done wrong to experience this?!

Please please email the Assistant Minister for Home Affairs Alex Hawke at:

We still have one month for them to hear us! We have to do this as louder as we can! Please please please... we’re begging you, please don’t seperate my son from his primary family. My dear Lord!
