My Colombian Dream
It's been 2 years since I found my Mama. The passport applications have set us back, the Visa Approval set us back but my mom & brother were approved. Now just raising the needed funds for them to come to Minnesota since its not safe for me to go to Colombia. Please keep us in your prayers.
This whole month of July was a count down on my calendar at home for my Mama & I to have our very first embrace. I've burnt holes in my floors from pacing, I've kept very busy so my thoughts didn't consume me. (They did anyway) I worked more hours then ever and spent a lot of time at the farm where I'm most at peace. The calendar got down to this last week which was so tough with my son leaving for the Navy, helping roof the house, preparing with my clients, Brian getting approved for a one week vacation when they arrived...My heart is always racing, my mind is spinning, my body shakes, I can't sleep. All because my Mama was finally coming!!!
I got news last night they weren't coming. I'm so heartbroken. I've not cried so much in all my life as I have this week. I know God's timing is perfect but this is SO hard. I've waited so long for this moment. My mama continues to reassure me that she will hold her baby girl soon. I just need my mama here. The Colombian government is taking their sweet time to close my missing persons case. I can prove who I am now but it's still not enough. I can go to Colombia but according to the US Embassy & Immigration attorney it will be a fight to get me back being I was kidnapped & have an open missing/exploited child case on me. My mama and family in Colombia live in a poverty stricken area. They are not wealthy people. I am sending my family $1K beginning of August but it's still not enough to get them here. I'm needing God to talk to me and tell me what I need to do. It's been 2 years 3 months since I've found my mom. There should be no more hurdles we have to jump. Knowing today was suppose to be our big reunion makes me want to fight even harder to get to Colombia. I have the Colombian warrior blood in me and I'm not giving up. Please pray for my Mama and family in Colombia. God always provides!
Until I have this straightened out Brian, myself, & my immigration attorney agree it's not in the best interest of our children and our family to travel to Colombia as badly as I need this trip. Because of this, it is much easier for my mom to come here to Minnesota. Her and my older brother are coming!!! They'll be here soon. I just want to take this time to say THANK YOU for all your prayers and support these last two years. I still am praying God has plans for my travel "Home" but in His time.
I'm including my moms testimony of my kidnapping and the moment my private investigator connected with her. Tears of joy even after watching her testimony numerous times. God Bless You All!
