Josh and I continue to be blown away by story after story of people who are contacting us who are in the exact same boat, or at least similar boat, as we are in! I got a Facebook message as well as an email, just yesterday, of two other families who were just denied their VISAS. But our information is EVERYWHERE! I can’t focus my brain long enough to sift through all the messages and emails to find everyone again…
We have a new friend who is working on trying to get our story on CNN. NO, we didn’t ask for this, and YES, it’s pretty intimidating, and NO, it probably won’t even happen, but it may be a very helpful avenue if it makes the cut, as we feel like this situation is much bigger than simply our “difficult case” being passed on.
We know how politics work and we know that there are many of you out there, so here is what we are asking…we don’t just want to make a ripple in this broken system, we want to make a splash and try to fix this for other families and other children!
So, if you are one of the dozen or so families that have contacted us in the past month about your situation, we want to hear from you again! And if we’ve not heard from you yet, PLEASE send us a message. In fact, if you are a friend or relative of someone who is “stuck” like we are please contact them to let them know what we are trying to do and see if they would be willing to share their story with us.
Now, I know, not everyone is as open about their process as we have been, so don’t feel like you need to comment openly on our blog here, although I know that others will be lifting you up if you do choose to share your story, but at least contact us at the email on the “Contact Us” tab at the top. We need a way of putting all our contacts and stories in one place:)
We know how you feel. We feel it too! We feel stuck, hurt, confused, numb and quite simply beat up…but we feel like we are gaining a voice through this pain and want to make our trial worth while.
Will you help us?
Comment, share, like, email, whatever…spread the word!
