$63,775 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 386 people in 9 months
UPDATE: April 5/19...EIGHT months Clark and Kim have been waiting to bring Ayo home to Canada. Ayo is legally their son,  he has been for EIGHT months.
A file was submitted in January filled with additional documents that OUR government required from the Moran’s after Ayo was initially denied Canadian citizenship last November. OUR government told the Moran’s they would respond to that file within thirty days of them receiving it. That timeline ended SIX weeks ago. SIX WEEKS ago and not one word from OUR Canadian government regarding the LEGAL and ETHICAL adoption of Ayo.
Clark and Kim were prepared for the expense of a “normal” international adoption. This, this is not normal. This process caused by OUR Canadian government has swelled the need for finances considerably. We are asking you to help in any way you can. Every dollar matters and makes a difference. ❤️✌

UPDATE: February 26/19...210 days in Africa waiting for our Canadian government to give Ayo the necessary documents to allow him into Canada. It has been SIX months since this campaign started.  We as #ayosarmy are still reaching out for either financial help or help in spreading the word to others. This significant delay has risen the cost of the Moran’s legal and ethical adoption considerably. It has been mentioned many times that the Moran’s don’t know what they would have done without the generous support of so many already. They are overflowing with gratitude. ❤️✌

UPDATED: As many of you know today, November, 24/18, marks 116 days of
Clark and Kim Moran trying to bring their legally and ethically adopted son Ayo home to Canada. Kim in Africa the entire duration, Clark, as I write this, on his way back to Ghana due to a medical emergency with Kim, forcing them to trade places. 

_____________________________________________________

Alongside their passion to serve and lead others, came their passion to grow their family thru adoption. After a 3 - year process of home studies and mounds of paperwork, they finally received a call from their agency saying, "we have a boy, no one has claimed him, will you?" Without hesitation they said, "YES!"
Since meeting their son in early August, they have been working on their attachment while doing everything they can to bring him home. The Canadian Government has eight Canadian Embassies in Africa, one of which is in Ghana. After the adoption was finalized in Nigeria, the family flew to Ghana,  to receive the final documents needed to allow Ayo being brought into Canada. Awaiting this last step, and led to believe it was days away from being issued, prior commitments forced Clark to return home alone for work, leaving Kim and Ayo behind. It was thought that his wife and son would be right behind him, but that was not the case.
After weeks of waiting and being denied information from the Canadian Governement about the delay, the unnecessary stress has caused Kim  serious complications in her physical condition due to her MS. This has initiated Clark flying back to Ghana once again in order to trade places with Kim so that she can return home for nessesary treatment.


WHO AM I? —
I have the privilege of calling the Moran’s friends. I live in Langley, BC.
The funds will be used to cover expenses caused by their delayed stay, medical provision in Africa for both Kim and Ayo and travel. The money will be e-transfered in its entirety to them.

Thank you for joining TeamMoran! ❤️✌

No one ever imagined we’d be TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY SEVEN days into waiting for Ayo to come HOME. This is still very much happening thanks to our “trusted” officials who refuse to give answers or sign the paperwork needed allowing Ayo to be a Canadian. #ayosarmy is truly thankful for those who have partnered with us to help the Moran’s.

Kim, Clark and Ayo need our love and support right now more than ever before. The following is an update from Kim and Clark this morning...
“We are at a loss for how to communicate this, but we received correspondence from the Canadian government today saying that they are refusing Ayo Canadian citizenship at this time. They have given us a period of time to provide supporting documents before a final decision is given, and we are working with our adoption agency and an immigration lawyer to provide these documents.

We are exhausted with the process and heartbroken at the result, but we are moving forward with hope that this isn’t over yet.

We know that many of you will have questions that we are unable to answer until this is resolved.

And now? Pray. Pray like you’ve never prayed before for our family. We desperately need it.”

Update from Kim...
“Hey friends! ✌
I’ve been taking time to heal and resettle back into life in Canada since I arrived home from Africa 11 days ago.

I continued the care and treatment course that I started in Ghana and my medical team here in Canada is really happy with the progress I’m making.

My facial palsy (the whole right side of my face was paralyzed) is almost completely back to normal and while my hands and feet are still numb, I’ve regained a significant amount of strength and mobility.

We have some big decisions to make about treatment, but we’ll take our time to make those decisions together as a family when life doesn’t feel so crazy.

For now, I’m missing my guys fiercely, but trying to take care of myself so I can be my best.

I have been completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of love on my family. I’m lost for words to know how to say thank you for your support during my hardest days. And, thank you for continuing to fight for my family when I was too weak to do it myself. Our community is amazing.

Today I finally feel like I’m going to be okay. I’m going to be okay.”
