I am Ruby. I am a stateless woman. I am married to a wonderful man, Mike. We have two beautiful daughters. The eldest, Elyazia,  is 14 now, a very talented football player, artist, and is a straight "A" student. The youngest, Joury,  is two and a half, a very smart little girl,  full of life and joy. Being stateless is by far the most demeaning position a person can ever be in. It is defined as a state where the individual literally does not belong anywhere on this planet.  We have no rights whatsoever. We cannot even own a house. We are almost not considered humans at all. We can get fired from a job in the blink of an eye. No warning,  no pension,  no compensation, even if we had worked for years in that job. We currently reside in Lebanon. With our quality of life I will never be able to give my daughters the life and education they deserve. Let alone the identity and respect they deserve. This thought haunts me every single  day of my life. 

My late grandfather was a British citizen, and now I am trying to take my family to England. Where we can work hard and provide our children with the life they deserve. Where we can "BELONG" and live with dignity. I take great pride in my British heritage and England runs in my blood. English is my mother tongue. And I am raising my children to love and respect England as much as I do. 

I am here to call on all my friends and everyone who is willing to support me by signing this petition that would reiterate my right to a decent life. I am literally begging for all the support I can get for my case. Please help me. 

Every signature on this petition is like a healing touch to our wounds. Help us reach safety. Help us "BELONG". Help us become recognised as human beings. 

I would like to thank every single person who is and who will help me out of this situation. I am forever grateful to you all. 

With all my love and respect,
