Help Bring My Dad Home

Seven years ago my father was deported back to Albania after living in the U.S. with his family for over 20 years.  He left behind three daughters, his wife, and his five year old son.  We lost the business he started in 2013,  four years after he was deported. It has been difficult, not only financially but emotionally as a family.  

It's finally happening, after so many years of waiting, the final steps for his return are here.  He must prove in a court that his family is suffering, emotionally and financially, and needs him. Currently, his attorney fees and court fees for filing the necessary waivers will total upwards of $4000. 

I know my dad has touched the hearts of so many people that he has met and helped throughout the years living in the U.S. His story has been just as shocking to them as it was to his family. He was deported not because he lived here without the right paperwork or because he commited an unforgivable crime but because somewhere there was a mistake made and he along with his family paid the price for it. We as a family would like to be united once again and let this unfortunate event in our lives be in the past.

To move forward and for my siblings to not grow up without a father and for my mom to have her husband back, and for my dad to be with his loved ones, we need the help and support from our friends. Any amount will help to finally bring my dad back home.

Thank you for your consideration and support in this desperate time in our familys lives. We  appreciate you

To everyone who has shared and donated I would like to thank you tremendously. In the next couple of days I will set up the withdrawal of the funds that have been donated, I will be receiving the funds so that I can prepare the filing of the waivers and so forth.
Although we did not meet our goal, the process has to proceed and hopefully we can get some of the fees waived. Anymore donations will be greatly appreciated.
As some people know, there are many things happening with my family right now that need great attention, everyone is stressed beyond imagination. Getting my dad home will reduce so much pain and weight lifted that there are no words that could describe that great change it will have on us as a family.
thank you for you consideration and sympathy.
Love you all

Talked to our lawyers recently, we're hoping to get some of our filing fees waived but will have to still pay a good amount.
