Bring my family home from Bolivia!

While I originally created this fundraiser over two years ago thinking about trying to visit my family in the US.  I never really pursued it as no one I know really wanted me to return to Bolivia if I visited the States.  So, two years later and after over 7 years in the immigration process for my husband he has been approved to return to the USA as a Legal Permanant Resident.  I simply have no funds available for the flight.  Currently $1060 a ticket for a family of 6. 

I have not seen most my family since 2008 nor two of my own daughters since 2006.  I never imagined our immigration journey could take so long.  When I left the states I thought we would be back within a few months or maybe a year.  Unfortunately, that has not been the case. 

You can read more about our story on my blog, Unadventures In Bolivia.

Any amount that you can give is not too little; even if it is only a share or a tweet!

We are getting close to the finish line. Just waiting for the hubs passport to come back so we can finalize our plans to come home. Can you help by tweeting, sharing our campaign or even just donating $1?

Dax just left to go get his passport style photo printed, and to print copies of my and my fathers taxes and assets. Then he goes straight to the embassy. So now I will sit here waiting and chewing my nails until he calls and says that the visa is approved. Which means his visa can be issued any day. We are ready to come home as a family, can you help make that sooner rather than later by donating $1, sharing or tweeting our campaign.

So many tests / instructions. This is a total lifestyle change for him. For all of us really, because we are going to eat the same for all of us.

We got hit hard, my son has been in the hospital for 6 days, diagnosed with type one diabetes. It is a miracle that it happened now that his father was finally approved for his green card after over 7 years in immigration limbo.
