While the meeting has been joyous, the journey is far from over. An exit letter for each twin is all that is standing in the way of this family returning to the U.S. and reuniting with the couple’s eldest son. So far, the DRC government is unwilling to provide these letters. Despite their twin son’s health issues, which need to be treated in the U.S., and a recently developed case of tumbu flies, health concerns do not appear to be expediting their case.
Unceasing prayers are being said for progress of the situation; however, the financial burden of this waiting game is piling up. For almost two weeks the Sokolowskis have been staying in a quaint hotel with fees that rival a 4-star US hotel. Food expenses are above average, as well. And when the twins are finally granted their exit letters, four last minute flights from the DRC to Tennessee must be purchased.
Please show your love and support for reuniting this family by donating what you can. Even $10 will help alleviate some of the strain. After all these children, and their parents, have endured, let’s take the some financial worry off their minds so they can enjoy these precious first weeks together. All support, both prayers and dollars, are greatly appreciated!
