Fund to Help Luis Return Home

My 25 year-old son migrated to the United States to live with me 2010 with dreams of obtaining a degree in psychology. Luis graduated from Wilson High School and attended UDC for almost 2 years until he began bouts with mental health disease. My son had struggled with depression but was able to manage his condition until he became overly preoccupied with his immigration proceedings and worried about being deported causing his depression and anxiety to persist. 

During a recent mental health episode, Luis was arrested and subsequently processed by immigration where they hadordered his deportation. With the assistance of a legal professional we were able to fight his deportation however he continues to be detained until we pay a $5,000 bond.  I'm hoping to raise funds so that Luis can return and we can ensure his access to the adequate mental health care that he requires and so that he can be reunited with his family once again.  

The funds raised will be put forth towards the bond that is owed as well as to cover some of the legal expenses. As a single mother of 4 children it is difficult to come up with this amount of money in so little time.  Anything you are willing to give to help is appreciated.
